The Practical Woodworker Volume 1 - Bernard E Jones

The Practical Woodworker Volume 1 edited by Bernard E Jones is a foundation set of books for the woodworker interested in early 20th-century woodworking techniques. Volume 1 covers the workshop and its equipment, including shop appliances such as a saw bench, as well as the tools and foundation techniques of the trade: measuring and marking tools, saws and sawing, hammer and mallets, chisels and gouges, planes and planing, gluing, nailing and screwing and more. Plus, you'll find techniques for making mouldings, cutting rabbets (rebates, actually--the books were first printed in England), making houses and lap joints, edge and angle joints, dovetails and more. It also includes some simple projects including plain tables, domestic woodenware, dog kennels, steps and ladders and more.
