Hand tools are the classic way to work with wood. You feel a saw cutting crisply through the wood, a plane taking gossamer-thin shavings, or a chisel gently gouging out carving a groove. And hand tools are often a better choice than power tools, offering a degree of control and precision no machine can match. Best of all, using hand tools leaves a personal mark on your projects. But with thousands of hand tools to choose from, which ones do you really need? Of those, which are good-and which are better? And how do you use them to ensure the best results? The answers to these questions-and many more-are in this comprehensive resource. Here are the tools that serious woodworkers turn to on a daily basis, as well as how to use and care forthem. Every woodworker, whether beginner or pro, should keep this reference guide near the workbench.

Any Rae has done an outstanding job presenting hand tools in this book. Woodworkers always look for a better, quicker and easier way to do things but sometimes the old way is best. Sometimes it is the feeling and sound that the tool gives back to you through your hands that truly gives you the pleasure of working with wood. Andy gives you the inspiration to read further and go back to your old friends. This is a book you will pick up and browse frequently. Thanks Andy
