This book is for amateurs in the true sense of the word - those who love the material and the work of their craft more than anything else about it. Unique in woodworking literature, this book emphasizes the whys underlying the how-tos. Here woodworkers will find not only information about some of the more important aspects of the craft, but also reminders about the attitudes that make such information usable in a personal way. The author covers a broad spectrum of subjects, including choosing wood, setting up a workshop, workbenches, making wooden planes, coopering, doweling, and dovetailing, frame-and-panel work, details such as drawer latches, hinges, and handles, and the use of hand and power tools. This book is intended to encourage enthusiasts at every level, from beginners engaged in early woodworking experiments to designers and crafters intent on developing their own sensitivity with wood.
