Review by

This is a short little book with 45 designs for small projects for wood working. All of them are fun little puzzles and head scratchers to keep the observer busy trying to figure it out. I will have fun trying out some of them myself. A couple of the designs seem to be lacking in a couple details to make it easier to replicate. All of the designs are a little rough as well.
