Library Journal Review

Even relatively new woodworkers can make a single serviceable cabinet, but making an entire kitchen-full presents a much greater challenge. Written by professional cabinetmakers, this volume offers a number of production methods used in cabinet shops, which could prove useful for both home woodworkers and professionals. Pros must work quickly and efficiently, but they also have to achieve a high level of quality. Numerous parts must be milled and then kept in order so that work can proceed smoothly. Fristand and Ward show methods, developed over 20 years in the shop, that work for them. They assume that readers are competent woodworkers, covering a great deal of ground in only 93 pages. Minimal but adequate illustrations supplement the text. Useful for both amateurs and professionals, this title is appropriate for comprehensive woodworking collections. (c) Copyright 2010.
