From Library Journal:

Abram, star of TV's New Yankee Workshop and This Old House, is renowned for having more power tools than a well-stocked home center. Regular viewers will therefore be surprised to see that here he deals mainly with hand tools. Abram covers items such as levels, chalk lines, and plumb-bobs, detailing his experiences with them and his preferences. Unlike power tools, these tools aren't exciting, but they're the meat-and-potatoes tools that must be mastered to do good carpentry. This type of information is passed down from generation to generation, and it is in this spirit that Abram dedicates his book to his late father, also a carpenter. Even experienced woodworkers will pick up a tip or two from this book. Given Abram's name recognition, his book will appeal both to woodworkers and to TV viewers. Recommended for all public libraries.
