Pages: 192 Written with all skill levels in mind, this practical handbook presents detailed instructions for making 20 essential hand tools for joinery and general woodworking. All the tools can be made by the career craftsperson or the weekend woodworker, with common workshop tools and techniques. Included are instructions for measuring and marking tools, cutting tools, holding tools, and striking tools—everything needed to cut the frame and box joints that are at the heart of all furniture and interior woodworking. These tools are put to use as well, with lessons on cutting mortise-and-tenon frame joints and assembling dovetail joints for cases and drawers. A fine finished project can begin here, with fine handmade hand tools.
