Pat's writing is terse. There are no wasted words in this book or his other tomes. Perhaps that is why some readers find it difficult to understand. Every sentence is important!When you read this excellent book, you must consider each sentence carefully, read in sequence and re-read.Even though I have been working with wood over fifty years, I learned SO MUCH from this book! I now have numerous dedicated jigs that serve me very well and provide excellent results. I feel MUCH safer with Warner's jigs and fixtures than I ever have with other router-jigs culled from magazines, books and videos. The set-ups are fast, easy and as close to perfect as I have ever seen.Perhaps this is another reason some reviewers find Warner's works confusing: You must have some experience with woodworking to comprehend the ingenious elegant simplicity of his designs. If you do not understand wood as a material and its idiosyncrasies, or if you haven't used routers a great deal, much of Warner's writing may seem abstruse. From my peculiar background, everything he says makes perfect sense. Each page brings several "Eureka! moments."Since I grew up in a violin-shop, most of my woodworking background was with hand-tools. In my twenties I took to designing and building recording studios, timber-frame homes, and later, boats. Those occupations required the use of power tools, but I still didn't have much experience with routers until I starting building musical instruments again. I quickly learned "respect" (read: "fear") for routers. As a musician I am particularly careful about preserving my fingers. A few near-misses with routers convinced me to temporarily stop using them. Enter Pat Warner and this book...
