This is a very good book for anyone I believe. The author takes you through setting up a workbench and work table. He goes over proper storage of tools, cleaning, and sharpening. He then moves onto each category of tool, screwdrivers, saws, chisels, etc... What I thought was interesting in the chapter of drills. The author also suggested having an old style hand crank drill for smaller projects and just to have handy for you never know when either your battery drill or power drill could break down in the middle of a project and this way you don’t need to stop. He also said many carpenters kept hand drills handy for this reason as well. I am glad I never got rid of my grandfathers. There are many other tidbits in this book all worth a quick look at. Seemed very useful. I received this book from I gave it 4 stars. Follow at
