Creating with Concrete: Yard Art, Sculpture and Garden Projects
Sherri Warner Hunter
Great how to book!
This book is identical to another book by the same author. No idea why the soft cover has a different name than the hard cover! But it is a good book for people interested in using concrete to make unique garden objects. Concrete is easier to use than you'd think!!

Sylvia Long's Mother Goose
The Best Mother Goose EVER!
This is the Mother Goose book I buy for every baby in my life. The reason...the wonderful illustrations by Sylvia Long turn this book into a keepsake. A theme from one picture is repeated in the next picture and turns into a game as a child searches for the similarities. Extraordinary...you won't be disappointed!
Tools of the Trade: The Art and Craft of Carpentry
A wonderful book, a great gift.
It's a shame that this book is now out of print and likely to become scarce, as I have given it on several occasions and have always received many thanks in return. The author fills the reader, even a reader with minimal knowledge or interest in carpentry, with a true respect for the tools, their usage, and the history behind them. Not just the history in a greater sense, but also the history ...
Harry N. Abrams
I have owned this book for over a year and always thought it was an excellent book but wasn't inspired to write a review until just recently, when I received a new book I purchased called "Caribbean Style". This book, "Caribbean Elegance", is everything that the other book is not. I love this book! The photography is incredible, encompasing everything from the smallest furniture detail or ...
The Fine Art of Cabinetmaking
Learning From A Perfectionist
James Krenov is one of woodworking's treasures - an acknowledged master craftsman who is open about both his aesthetics and his techniques. For many of us he is a role model who started out on a shoe string in Sweden and has gone on to create a whole style all his own. He is as devoted to teaching as he is to his work and has a gift for inspiration and straightforward exposition. Unlike A ...
Home Enlightenment: Practical, Earth-Friendly Advice for Creating a Nurturing, Healthy, and Toxin-Free Home ...
Annie B. Bond
Lots of easy info
I do not have a lot of time to read with four kids and this book was a easy fast book to get through. Lots of information that was displayed easily. Not the big words either. And in the back it a huge wonderful list of resources I could look up on the internet. Wealth of information. I gave this book to our school hoping when they remodel they consider what was written.
Furniture Factory Outlet Guide
Home Decor Press
Don't buy furniture without this book.
I've bought this book twice - it's a must have before you shop for furniture. You save so much money the book really doesn't cost you anything. It will make you an informed shopper when buying furniture. Kimberly tells you what brands are sold where, and the discount you can expect. Information on stores to visit, stores to just call in your order, or stores to avoid are given - saving both ...

Great Intarsia Book!!!
This wonderful Book has really great patterns and the basic information in the front is very complete. I would and will recommend it to any beginners or woodworkers that want to improve their skill at Intarsia. The 21 patterns are well worth the price of the book. Kathy's designs are bringing intarsia to a new level of art, way beyond the craft stage. It is absolutely the BEST book on Intarsia ...
Chairmaking & Design
Concentrating more on the Essentials than Virtuosity
Really, really a fine book. Recently, I have been putting together a no-frills poplar extension dining-table following the indications of a number of Fine-Woodworking's regular contributors. Both my brother and a friend (both of them carpenters) said, whatever you do, don't make your own chairs, it'll take a lifetime, which then led me to a fruitless and saddening search for a chair on the ...
The Shaker Legacy : Perspectives on an Enduring Furniture Style
Christian; Sheldon, John Becksvoort
Random House Inc
This is a truly excellent book that should be on the shelves of all who work with wood, even those of you who, like myself, are not particularly keen on shaker furniture. The first part of the book overviews the Shakers and their attitudes to working with wood, their seeking of elegant simplistic functional beauty and their enjoyment of the process of working with wood - these are an ...
Burning The Furniture
(From Don Simmons, Jr., Check, VA) Burning the Furniture, by Dan Smith, stands up easily against Rick Bragg's All Over But the Shoutin' as a classic memoir of growing up in the South. As a Western North Carolina native who grew up in many a small Southeastern town, Smith's voice and rhythm bring my childhood and youth to life as surely as the smell of sawdust and varnish from a furniture ...
Dead Bang: An Art Hardin Mystery (Art Hardin Mysteries)

Best Art Hardin yet
Dead Bang is the third book in the Art Hardin series by Robert Bailey, and is clearly his best effort to date. Bailey has hit his stride with Dead Bang. This fast-paced book and will keep you on the edge of your seat while you keep turning the pages. The well-developed plot revolves around a friend of the Hardins duped into transporting money for terrorists, with an interesting sub-plot about a ...
The Chairmaker's Workshop: Handcrafting Windsor and Post-and-Rung Chairs
Truly deserves 5 stars
Woah, what a book. I don't really know where to begin or what I can add to the many other fine reviews here, they that convinced me to buy this book. I don't even like Windsor chairs, I think they are kind of ugly, I've seen too many cheap country furniture knock-offs, they make me kind of sick. Some - very few - are stunning. There are a few good ones in this book, and in other books I have ...
Finishing the Figure: Doll Costuming, Embellishments, Accessories
Top notch book!
What a fabulous book! Nothing to complain about with this one! Definitely glad I bought it.
Your Performing Edge
Jo Ann Dahlkoetter
Your Performing Edge
Your Performing Edge is quite simply the best book i have ever read on the subject of improving mental performance. I am a keen amateur golfer with a 4 handicap and a great natural athelete. Like everyone, i was searching for that "miracle" to help me break through the next barrier - my mind. I have read and studied a number of other books and programs about improving mental performance. While ...

Dining Tables: Outstanding Projects from America's Best Craftsmen
Kim Carleton Graves
Great Book , Great Authors
Taunton puts out great books with great authors, this book is no different. Great layout and information. I can't add much to what was already stated in the earlier reviews except that Kim Carleton Graves was easy to contact through email. He responded quickly, professionally and was very informative. In summary, buy the book you wont be disappointed.
Making Doll's House Miniatures With Polymer Clay
Sterling Pub Co Inc
This is the most wonderful book
I made myself a miniature drugstore since I am a pharmacist and I had trouble finding things like mortars and cylinders. Thanks to this book I managed to make the most beautiful look-alike mortars with pestles and all, also a little turn-of-the-century (last century, of course) telephone. The directions are precise and you can really get what you are looking for (and I had never touched polymer ...
