To show the dramatic results that can be obtained from closer attention to wood's natural strengths, Elkan has assembled a showcase of projects, all shown in breathtaking color. The fifteen designs featured here are imaginative variations on woodworkers' favorites: the basic bandsawn box (which he calls a "keeper"), hinged box, dovetail box, butterfly, owl, bird's nest, tower of wings, and several other sculptured pieces -- all shown in oversize close-ups that focus on the careful techniques needed for following the natural wood patterns. A full-color photo gallery displays over 40 award-winning projects.
What is the Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer?
The Tomatometer measures the percentage of Approved Tomatometer Critics who recommend a certain movie --
or the number of good reviews divided by the total number of reviews.
A good review is denoted by a FRESH tomato.
A bad review is denoted by a ROTTEN tomato.
In order for a movie to receive an overall rating of FRESH on Rotten Tomatoes, the reading on the Tomatometer for that movie must be at
least 60%. Otherwise, it is ROTTEN. The ratings and reviews are licensed by the Phoenix Public Library from Rotten Tomatoes. For more information,
