Library Journal Review

Proulx is a Canadian woodworker with more than 30 years experience, the last 11 in his own custom cabinet shop. He is the author of several other books on the craft of cabinetmaking and storage solutions, a contributing editor of CabinetMaker magazine, and the author of many articles for a variety of other woodworking magazines. The current volume presents 15 projects, aimed at the homemaker or hobbyist, which can be undertaken with basic knowledge and tools. Some of the individual projects can be combined in a variety of ways. In a bright, profusely illustrated volume, with some color on virtually every page, Proulx begins with a discussion of tools, techniques, and hardware that is insightful, honest, and encouraging. He then offers an "exploded" view of each project, followed by a materials list, and any details that might be confusing, or of interest to the builder. Proulx includes a metric conversion table, a wood color guide, a concise glossary of woodworking terms, and common defects, and an index. Well written and beautifully produced, this is a strong book with which to start, or to strengthen, one's woodworking skill. Recommended for those collections with strong hobbyist focus or with woodworkers.DAlex Hartmann, INFOPHILE, Skokie, IL (c) Copyright 2010.
