Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Take a step beyond fine woodworking and make your own custom hand tools. With a cursory nod toward safety concerns, first-time author Olesin jumps right into instructions for making woodworking and joinery tools such as gages, hand planes, saws, knives, and mallets. The beautifully finished pieces can be customized to fit the wielder's hands. Oddly, the instructions are accompanied by somewhat crudely drawn illustrations and black-and-white photos; measurements and instructions are mostly textual. This book is only for advanced woodworkers with a lot of confidence in tool use and basic design. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
