Following the loose theme of wedge use and blades, Underhill, popular author and star of the PBS series The Woodwright's Shop, meanders his way through historic tool use. From felling and processing trees to log construction and on to tool care and tool manufacture, there are no simplified projects and no step-by-step instructions. Black-and-white hand-drawn illustrations are scattered throughout the book. Odd and wonderful little tangents are peppered throughout as well (e.g., tricks with nails). Ideal for the experienced woodworker who wants to try a traditional direction with traditional tools, this is recommended for larger woodworking collections.
