can't live without it! Nov 30, 1998
this is the best hand dandy book I ever go
Excellent, can't live w/o book for all carpenters. Jun 12, 1998
I find this book the most useful book in my library. I was a full time carpenter and now work part time. From how many nails are in a pound to every converstion you'll ever use. It's great. It contains all those formulas, figures and hows to's that if not done all the time is forgotten. This is a must for all do it yourselfers and master carpenters.
