Subtitled "Cutting and Gluing, Strong, Straight, and Clean Scarf Joints in Plywood and Lumber"

Scarf joints are so necessary, yet probably one of the biggest "approach - avoidance" concerns for the potential builder. If you've read Russell's Epoxy Basics (shown below) then you're no doubt a fan of his clear instructions and techniques to have your work come out like a pro. This book follows that same line of thought.
