About the Author:

"Fine Woodworking "was launched in 1975 in response to the lack of quality woodworking resources available. With a circulation of 287,000 woodworkers of all skill levels, the magazine has become the #1 source of how-to information on techniques, tools, finishing, and inspiration.
Since 1981, the pages of" Fine Homebuilding" have inspired and instructed people who care about quality of home improvement and construction. With a circulation of more than 300,000, the magazine is the premier source for information on how to build projects better, faster and more efficiently.

From Library Journal:

The tricks here have appeared in Fine Homebuilding's "Tips and Techniques" and "Q & A" columns, both based on reader submissions. The hundreds of one-to two-paragraph tips and techniques that take up more than half the book cover such projects as building sawhorses, fabricating handy containers of every sort, and optimizing tool storage in a pickup truck. The ideas are mostly practical and often wonderfully improvisational. The remaining section addresses specific building problems submitted by readers and answered by other readers or editorial consultants in the "Q & A" column. These problems are larger in scope and address such issues as ridding basements of radon, solving moisture problems, retrofitting insulation, and more. A browser's delight for amateur and professional builders; recommended for popular how-to collections.
