Highland Woodworking Reviews ‘Cut and Dried’

“Every now and then there comes a work of exceptional importance for a wide range of woodworkers,” writes J. Norman Reid in a review of “Cut & Dried: A Woodworker’s Guide to Timber Technology” by Richard Jones. “This volume, by British cabinetmaker Richard Jones, is such a book. In “Cut and Dried,” Jones examines a broad spectrum of issues concerning the character, qualities, and uses of wood, with particular emphasis on its application to cabinetmaking.”

After a thorough review of the book’s contents, Reid writes, “Cut & Dried” is one of the most complete and detailed works on wood and wood technology available to non-specialist cabinetmakers. For this reason, it merits a place on the reference shelves of all serious woodworkers. I highly recommend this important book.”

  1. That review did put a smile on my face. But I only produced the manuscript, so my heartfelt thanks go to all at LAP for taking my raw manuscript and turning it all into something special. producing the book was, really, a collaborative effort, so I think the review’s commentary reflects upon everyone involved. Richard.
