A must have reference Review by Robert H

I've been reading about wood and working with wood (as a hobbyist) for over 10 years. I was amazed at how much I did not know and how much I learned in the 302 minutes of this DVD.

It has a well organized presentation, each topic following logically from the previous topic.

I will be viewing this DVD in its entirety many times and I will refer to individual chapters as needed.

This DVD is a bargain and should be in every woodworker's library.
