    I have purchased this book and pdf but for some reason I can’t seem to find the pdf download so I can download to my iPod. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Laurence

    smart move to include this excerpt. It sold me on the book. The earlier quote piece didn’t hook me. Thanks, Glenn

    Tempting, I was going to hold off on this one but now I don’t know.

    I liked bourbon until the hipsters ruined it for everyone. Even mid to bottom shelf stuff is getting harder to source. I am lucky that I have been buying from the same store for 10 years, so he always has a Eagle Rare, Blantons, Weller or (yes) Pappy for me when they come in.

    I really like Becksvoort’s writing. Not sure if I can pinpoint it, but it just sucks me in. I’ve read some books by him before and I had the same feeling. Really looking forward to this one. Read the excerpt now and it left me craving.

    I always thought of him as a Taunton Press type of guy, but this book shows Mr Becksvoort is right at home in the Lost Art Press line up. Good luck with the publication, it will be a classic someday.

    I’m 1/3 through the PDF and it’s great! Like Glenn said above, the excerpt you released before or the product info page really hooked me.

    I just ordered this. Becksvoort is one of my favorite woodworkers. I built the lamp he wrote an article about in FWW in nov 2011 a couple years ago. Was great fun and a great learning experience. This mans work is top notch. Becksvoort does for shaker design what Nakashima did for American Craft Style. Boom I said it. I am also so happy he has recently made his way to Instagram. He is an amazing craftsman. Very excited to read his book!
