    I received this book as a Christmas gift and was imldeiatmy impressed with the photography and layout of the book. Ms Ventura is a fine writer and waste’s no time in getting you hooked into the art of bandsaw boxes. I had often admired boxes made with bandsaws but had not quite figured out how the whole process was accomplished. This book covers it all, equipment and tools needed, selecting materials, laminating, layout, cutting and finishing. The resource section is a bonus. As an added bonus she supplies you with the templates for a good number of her famous designs, with tips to allow you to accomplish the fit and finish they each deserve. They are all designed to be made with a standard 14 bandsaw and one of the best hints is, she use’s one blade for everything. She suggests alternate methods for shaping and sanding if you do not possess some of the machines that she routinely uses and encourages you to use your own imagination and creativity. I have been making jewelry boxes and toy boxes for some time now, and while I enjoy making them sometimes I wish I could get away from the standard square box. This book has shown me a definite alternative and I will be adding bandsaw boxes to my list of projects. Great book, can’t rate it high enough.

Feedback and Interaction is greatly appreciated! Thx
