A great book for beginners with plenty of good information and projects for more experienced metalworkers. As a novice, I found the information and instructions in this book very helpful. There are lots of photos and explanation of techniques, tools, and materials to guide me through the projects, and handy reference information that would make this book good to refer back to. Lots of cool projects too! I would definitely recommend this book for those starting out in metalworking or wanting to brush up their skills.
