From Library Journal:

The Bridgewaters, a husband-and-wife team with more than 30 woodworking books to their credit, have produced another winner. This title offers 20 diverse projects in a very attractive package. There is something for every woodworker?a laminated jewelry box, a marquetry mirror, a carved fruit bowl, and several toys, including a remarkable mechanical teddy bear bank similar to vintage cast-iron banks. The text is excellent, taking one through the projects from start to finish. However, the graphics are what makes this book stand out; each section includes color photos of the project and profuse illustrations. A bill of materials and occasional tips round out the presentation. With so many woodworking books presenting a drab rehash of the same old works, this title is a nice change and will prove popular. Recommended for all public libraries.?Jonathan N. Hershey, Akron-Summit Cty. P.L., OH

From Booklist:

The Bridgewaters approach the continual problem of what to do with scraps with the attitude that objects created from them ought to be of some use. Fortunately, not only are the products of the 20 projects they present practical, but, done right, they are quite good looking. Of course, a woodworker has to be quite skilled to execute all 20, even if buying new materials for the projects (none of which will set you back very much, though). The teddy bear bank and the heart-shaped cheese board may be too cutesey for some, so let them try carving a fruit bowl (as opposed to using a lathe to make it) or fashioning a duck decoy from scratch--both uncutesy and testing patience as well as skill. Skilled woodworkers who ply their wares at local craft shows may be pleased to discover among the 20 projects new items to hawk, yet the totally noncommercial woodworker is sure to find something of use herein.
