     Brian Nystom's instructional manual is well thought out and well presented. Extra points for using spiral binding so that you can lay it on the counter next to you and glace at it as you progress through the process. I really can't think of anything that he could have done better to improve upon it.

     Frequent Pnetter Brian Nystrom hits a home run with his first book on building Greenland paddles. Forty-eight pages containing eighty photos of the paddle-making process in a clear, easy to follow fashion. Spiral bound for the workbench, this book is made to be at the paddlemaker's side during the wonderful process of turning a natural piece of wood into a utilitarian and beautiful piece of Greenland art: the Greeland Paddle. I am a rank amateur at woodworking, yet Brian's hints and non-preachy discourse makes the gentle carving of the paddle seem within reach of even a novice. Many topics, such as wood selection, tools of the trade, and finishes for the paddle, for instance, I have seen on many threads over the past year. NOw you can have experienced answers and tips in one concise workbook.

I strongly suggest this book for anyone contemplating the home build of the Greenland Paddle. I look forward to a future boat outfitting and modification book from Mr. Nystrom, who has displayed a talent for these skills on his web pages.
