Free of the clouds of dust and the ear-piercing noise of machines, you can experience woodworking as it was experienced prior to the machine age. This book includes excellent instruction from a best-selling woodworking author on all aspects of woodworking with hand tools. He approaches setting up the all-hand tool shop, explains how the tools work in wood, addresses the joinery, and finishes with instructions on building a workshop accessory to use with hand tools. Also included are other sample projects and information on finishing the hand-worked projects. The author also has video vignettes to further amplify the learning process that can be used as web site content.
