I am in search of expertise as I finish my barn/shop. Tolpin is a one man shop, and he lets us benifit from his mistakes, and planning. Especially in situations where you may be doing repetitive cabinet building? There are some pieces of information that are common knowledge, but not until they are stated? There were moments when I said "oh?" "Yeah!" This is an early work by Mr. Tolpin, and it is an information book for we who are also in the early stages. Would have given five stars but there is some additional information now available. The pictures and problem solving are worth having.
Fun and nutritious!

This books is both useful and fun, but in an unusual way: It combines solid business planning information with a lot of information on how to set up your shop. I have read a number of woodworking/business books, and they are dull, not enough jigs and tool talk. Here you get both in an integrated way that makes each strand more useful: All the technology has a purpose. Really a unique way of packaging a woodworking book. Of course the ultimate lesson is that you should drop all that woodworking nonsense and like Mr. Tolpin become a nationally recognized writer of coffee table books. They're good too, but I miss him.Oh, by the way, the focus is a two car garage sized cabinet shop.
Do you yearn to be a woodworker

This book is an absolute must for anybody who wants to be a cabinetmaker or own a small shop. Of course you could work 20 years and get this information first hand, the hard way. Mr Tolpin --Hat's off--- Great job, Thank you very, very much
