Traditional Woodworking Handtools - Graham Blackburn
Traditional Woodworking Handtools by Graham Blackburn describes in detail the major woodworking handtools. The author has assembled a virtual encyclopaedia of traditional woodworking handtools, including holding tools, saws, planes, edge tools, setting-out tools, boring tools, and striking tools. Each tool is listed and includes a full description of what it does and how it s used. His engaging writing, which includes anecdotes from his four decades as a master woodworker, entertains as well as instructs. And the hundreds of line drawings of handtools are illuminating. While also a reference for anyone collecting or simply fascinated by handtools, Traditional Woodworking Handtools is a user s guide for the woodworker and crafter, designed to help reintroduce many of these tried-and-true tools into today s workshops."
