John D. Michne is a retired chemist and gamma ray spectroscopist. Among his many boatbuilding awards, his reproduction Virginia won Best in Show at the annual Northeastern Woodworkers Showcase 2002 and his 14' Adirondack guideboat won the Best in Show and People's Choice awards at the NWA's 2004 show. Michael J. Olivette is Associate Dean in the College of Professional Studies at the University of Scranton and has spent much of his life exploring New York State's Adirondack Mountains. He is a licensed Adirondack guide who, like the guides of the old days, is also an accomplished carpenter, furniture maker, and boat builder.Review:
Building an Adirondack Guideboat tells us all we need to know about putting together a guideboat to the old lines with modern materials at a cost that falls comfortably near the low end of the scale. ...The amount of detail given to us by the authors, in a comfortable letter-from-home style, is impressive....if you are really going to build one of these boats, you will bless this book each evening as you turn off the shop lights and then you will take it to bed with you in order to prepare for the next day s work. --Mike O'Brien, Woodenboat magazine
So, my thanks go to (and admiration of) Michael J. Olivette and John D. Michne for authoring a truly outstanding book and having done all of us a great service in the bargain. --Rodger C. Swanson, Messing About In Boats
This book ...is a clear and highly descriptive treatise on the entire construction process, from planning to finishing. Profusely illustrated with 260 excellent black & white photographs, it also includes 16 crisp line drawings of the original John Gardner plans, a list of each and every brass screw required, a sources section, a bibliography and a glossary of boatbuilding terms. When I served as a judge for several years at the annual Northeastern Woodworkers Association (NWA) expo in Saratoga Springs, New York, I was privileged to award John Michne several awards for his boats, including a "Best of Show" award in 2002, for his reproduction of the Virginia. The level of accomplishment in these craft was stunning. Whether you intend to build a showpiece, or a simpler version of this classic boat, this book will provide all the information you need, and show you a whole new arsenal of woodworking techniques in the bargain. --Ellis Walentine, Woodcentral.com
