KIRKUS REVIEW

Imported from England this is solid, detailed information about equipping a small home shop, the use of tools, ways of joining wood, the making of simple furniture. From beginning chapters on tools, sawing, planing, chiselling, nailing, screwing and boring, there is a logical progression towards working with the wood itself- testing, shaping edges, widening angling, and finally, ways to join, make a box, a door, a hinge Always explicit, the author gives a wealth of information within his sections. There are positions, types, faults to avoid in sawing; edge planing, and grain planing, how to test for the flatness of your planing and so forth. Many accurate drawings make this clear handbook one to rely on.
