For speed and production, power tools are the norm in many woodshops, professional and amateur. But a growing number of woodworkers are developing a renewed interest in the use of traditional hand tools for personal satisfaction, the pleasure of hands-on work, and a more leisurely, contemplative approach to woodworking.
Blackburn has assembled a virtual encyclopedia of traditional woodworking tools, setting-out tools, sawing tools, planes, edge tools, striking tools, and boring tools. He entertains as well as instructs the reader with anecdotes from his many years of personal experience as a master woodworker. More than a manual for woodworkers, this is also a reference guide for people who collect beautiful, historic hand tools, and the hundreds of line drawings of hand tools are a delight. --Mark A. HettsFrom the Publisher:
The fully illustrated reference guide to all the major handtools--a must for any woodworker's library. 400 line drawings.
