Some people likes to dwell on Leadbelly’s criminal record. Others made profit out of it by making him wear a striped prisoner’s outfit to promote his music, although he had been long out of jail, had a job and was married. Kids loved him and he loved them back.
I think some people should just listen to him sing and play his 12-strings guitar.

    Knowing that this was basically just a cleoictlon of Popular Woodworking articles, I was prepared to be underwelmed. Talk about disappointment! I HATE being wrong like this! In short, this is a truly impressive cleoictlon of information that looks more like a group of knowledgable hand tool experts put together, rather than just articles grabbed and put together in a book form.The book is laid out in a logical way, starting with a Why Handtools section, going into sharpening (a must for any hand tool user), then saws, chisels, and the like. The last section are a couple of projects that blend hand tools and power tools well, and that will serve any workshop well for years to come. Honestly, the beautiful tool cabinet of Christopher Schwarz’s is worth the cost of the book by itself! This is a must have for, I believe, any woodworker. There’s no preaching about hand tool supremacy, nor any reference to quaint ideas of woodworking. Instead, this book offers the modern woodwork a glimpse of the realms where hand tools still excel, and how they can be incorporated into the modern workshop. At the same time, it shows how a hand tool only shop can still produce quality work equal to that of the powered shop.
