Jeremy Broun is an innovative designer, maker and teacher or whom woodworking has been a passion for over 35 years. He is constantly striving to find new and exciting ways to work wood, and passes this knowledge and enthusiasm on through his unique courses, books and videos, suitable for both hobbyists and professionals. Jeremy is based in Bath, in the West of England.From Library Journal:
After brief coverage of safety, tools, and wood, Broun arranges 32 woodworking techniques, such as gluing, clamping, measuring, finishing, fretwork, and types of joinery, in alphabetical order and devotes two to four pages of explanatory text to each. For example, the skill of chiseling and the tools it requires are briefly described, and the entire process is illustrated with 12 color photographs. The book closes with 40 pages of color photographs of mostly modern furniture (e.g., chests, tables, chairs, and knick-knacks), along with short comments on each item. The photographs are top notch, and the text is well written and concise. Unfortunately, the beginning woodworker will probably need far more help than this volume offers, while those with experience will not find much new.
