I’m skilling up my woodworking from ham-fisted to something better.
Along the way I’ve read several books to help me understand what I need to do to get the skills I need.
This book seemed to fit the skills that I felt i was lacking in and discusses some tools that I’ve not come across or had any knowledge of before.
The focus of Mr Guidice’s work is on the essentials:
- Joint making
- Measuring and marking
- Sawing to a line
- Sharpening tools
- Using hand planes
- Making mortise and Tenon joints, and
- Wood finishing.
Originally published in 2001 the skills are as relevant today as they were when this was written. Now to practice!
