It is no coincidence that nearly every woodcraft magazine devotes a section to trade shortcuts and tricks-woodworkers love finding new and better ways to enjoy their hobby. Settich offers a wealth of information on materials selection, glue and clamps, jigs and fixtures (one can never have enough!), and shop safety, among other topics, divided into 16 chapters. Books of this type always contain a certain amount of material that seems obvious (doesn't everyone know how to calculate board feet?), but with 501 tips, there is something for everyone (e.g., you can lengthen pipe clamps by joining two with a threaded coupler). Logically organized, this title includes a detailed index as well as abundant photos (both color and b&w) and clear drawings-a somewhat unusual touch. For most public libraries.
