Straight forward Pierce Review by chuckbeck

I just picked this up a week ago as I am planning a set of New Lebanon #6 side chairs, and if Kerry Pierce has a book on the subject, I needed to have it for reference. His articles in Woodwork magazine made me a believer in his straightforward teaching/writing style; the diagrams and photos are rich and it seems to come in at the right level.
