Product image for The Essential Woodworker

A fantastic book about using hand tools, The Essential Woodworker is fulled with photographs and hundreds of hand-drawn illustrations. It describes basic skills, techniques, design, and tool selection. Projects—including a table and cabinet—walk readers through marking and cutting wood, cutting mortises, tenons, and dovetails, and adding hardware. A short appendix describes the construction of several useful jigs.
