Overview

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. There is also complete coverage of glues, fasteners, hardware, and finishes. Each section includes vital tips and a "jargon buster" feature explaining special terminology. The result is an indispensable reference for everyone from the beginner to the experienced craftsperson.
