    I certainly enjoy all the advice and aricles on this website. I am starting to spend more time reading articles on the website and less in the workshop. A book like this could turn that around.

    You told me and I thought I understood; you showed me and I had an insight, then I went into the shop and found I didn't understand at all.  Hours of work later showed I should spend as much time in the shop as possible.  Where to draw the line between research and doing!

    I learn so much by reading, then doing.  Hope I win.

    John Kivlighan Sr writes:

    We learn quite a bit about construction, but how about advice on how to disassembled old (antiques) furniture without destroying it. Chairs, tables and case goods.  I have managed to create much more reconstructive repair work due to destructive disassembly techniques.
