The complete analysis of this product tells us that it is highly focused on saving costs on woodworking projects. The guide is a helpful material for someone who is interested in building wooden structures for setting up a shop, but it seems that a little prior experience is needed for using this type of program because the book contains limited information on the craft and it is more focused towards tools and materials.
So, if you are entirely new to woodworking, we believe you will need a better training material than this to succeed with your project but the program comes with a 60-days moneyback guarantee, so you can explore this product by taking your time to decide for yourself whether it is useful for you or not.
