Not what it claims to be The title of this book is very misleading because it gives the impression that the projects inside are whittled in twenty minutes using just a knife.In fact, to complete nearly all of the projects listed, you must firstly cut them out using either a scroll, band or coping saw.To cut curved shapes on a scroll or band saw takes quite a bit of practise, and is not something a beginner could do easily.Even if you used a coping saw, it would still take some time to cut the pieces…
