Fine Woodworking on Bending Wood: 35 Articles Reviews
I'm a professional woodworker and like to incorporate curved aspects in my designs for cabinetry. I found this book very helpful because it covers so many different tecniques. There are many ways to skin the cat; You will find most of them here. Illustrations are typical for old Fine Woodworking articles; black and white and adequate to make the material more accessable if not a joy to behold. This book encouraged me to forge ahead into some new tecniques; What more can you ask?
It's 'Fine Woodworing On,' nuff said.
revista que reúne os melhores artigos da revista fine woodworking, divulgados durante seus primeiros dez anos de publicação... para os que são profissionais ou amadores estusiasmados, é uma excelente fonte de informações sobre o assunto, bending wood, além de fornecer um apanhado quase geral sobre a história deste aspecto técnico na marcenaria ocidental...
I got really disapointed when I received and read this book. It provides advanced techniques that a regular woodworker would never use. The parts that woodworkers use the most are vague. I'm not intereset in making violins or boats. I need techniques to bend wood, to use joints for curved surfaces, to build equipment and fixtures to bend wood and so on. This book lacks of the practical guidelines to do so.
It could have been a little more complete on how-tos. Picture are to old, the information was geared to much to it was done in years gone by.
This is just a reprint of old to very old FWW articles. All Black and White. Overall, it will be helpful.
My husband loves working with wood. He and his friend were building a canoe in our basement. He wanted to know the correct way to bend wood without it breaking. This book did the trick. It has become part of his woodworking library. Thank you.
I received this book, but I do not remember ordering it. This is not a book that I would have ordered. The book is OK; but the book I remember buying was "Spindle Turning" not "Bending Wood". The "Bending Wood" came with the "Spindle Turning" Book. So I put Bending on my book shelf and there it sits today.
