  2. When bought togeter with the Glassing 101 video,

    this totals out to $70. Ouch!

    The methods of shaping presented mimic the same kind of wasteful spending, with expensive (and optional) power tools and an arsenal of obscure equipment presented as almost mandatory. It is of almost no use to the common DIY shaper, who needs only basic and inexpensive tools.

    It’s also kind of cheesy, and the video format means that you better be taking notes if you want to learn anything.

    I would recommend “Shaping and Glassing” by Steven Miller instead because it has probably more information, better diagrams, and costs about 15 bucks.
