    This little book is a big surprise. It’s small, about the size of a largish Daytimer, almost 7″x8″. Every page is filled with diagrams and color drawings illustrating every joint that’s used in American woodworking. There are plenty of color photos also.

    I’d worried it might be too small to be useful but it’s the opposite. Because it’s small (feels like a little binder), it doesn’t take up much space in the work area and you can also carry it around easily in your glove compartment or tool box. It will be there when you need it. The shiny cover means sawdust slips right off and it stays clean.

    The most helpful part is that Noll shows exactly how to set up various tools. Where to put the wood, set up the jigs or cutting guides, even how to proceed safely with your hands. This is a significant aid if you’ve never done a certain joint with a power tool before.

    Highly recommended.

    This book is simply amazing. It shows you any joint you could ever want to build and how to do it and it does it with full color photos and drawings. There is not a single page of fluff. Every page gets right to the point and tells you what you need to know. It is also extremely well organized, not only by being intelligently divided into sections, but also with color coding so you can find what you want with ease. In addition, there is a joint index in the back of the book that shows small pictures of every joint in the book so you can flip through it and find what you’re looking for if you only know what it looks like, not what it is called. That alone is worth the money but, fortunately for us, the publisher went the extra mile and made this book with a spiral binding so it stays open, and printed it with a really thick and glossy cover so it resists wear when in use around the shop, and the interior pages are all printed on thick paper stock. It’s also compact (but not too small) so it isn’t bulky or in your way when tyring to use it as a reference while working. This is a true book for use around the shop and it has gone beyond what I ever expected to find in a joinery book. I can not recommend it highly enough.

    So many books show the woodworker bent over the project instead of the actual pieces of the project coming together. This book shows detailed, helpful pictures of each step of the many different joints. The spiral-bound format makes it ideal for the shop — you can lay the book down and have your hands free for working. This is by far the best guide I’ve seen for joinery.
