Exactly what I was looking for!

Just like his pieces in Woodenboat magazine, it was informative, crisp, and clever. Loved every page of it!

Great gift

Bought this for my husband. He really enjoyed reading it, and actually thinks it will be helpful to him in his “projects.”

Starting ideas

Lots of ideas and insights for moving heavy things, without the benefit of cranes and forklifts that are available at work.
