The former editor of England's biggest-selling woodworking magazine presents a comprehensive guide to all aspects of building with wood. Starting with a thorough introduction to the many different woodworking materials available today, from the common types of softwood, plywood, and chipboard found at most lumber suppliers, to dozens of rare and expensive hardwoods, Phil Davy goes on to offer detailed instructions on cutting and shaping wood with everything from classic hand tools to today's most sophisticated cordless and bench-mounted power tools.
