So when people review a Lost Art Press book – for better or Lumberjockey – it’s because they bought the book with their own money. I completely respect those reviews. I read them. I take their ideas seriously.
This morning, two reviews of “Mouldings in Practice” by Matt Bickford came over the wire on my RSS feed. One is from George Walker, a columnist for Popular Woodworking Magazine and the author of a forthcoming book with Lost Art Press. You can discount his opinion if you like, but I wouldn’t. George is one of the more thoughtful woodworking writers working today.
Here’s the link to his entry.
The second review is from Brian Eve, an American woodworker in Munich, Germany. Brian has taken a couple classes with me, but I wouldn’t call him a fanboy. He’s always busting my chops about something I’ve done and is more passionate about the craft than most American woodworkers – the dude works out of a tiny storage closet.
In any case, here is Brian’s review.
Sales of this book have been quite strong, which is surprising. “Mouldings in Practice” covers a niche inside a niche, but it’s about a part of the craft that hasn’t been fully explored, such as dovetails, ultimate router tables or things built in a weekend.
