Back to Basics Series

While the subtitle, ''Straight Talk for Today''s Woodworker'', for the ''Back to Basics'' series might imply that these books are designed for all woodworkers, they are, in my view, particularly relevant for novice woodworkers.

The authors rely largely on illustrations, and these are, in general, quite good. Almost every topic is accompanied by at least one illustration. The authors clearly have a good grasp of their respective subjects and know how to explain both simple and complex concepts clearly...these books contain a lot of reliable information that any novice woodworker will benefit from.

Woodworker's Guide to Joinery
This is a fundamental topic in woodworking, as without knowing the basics of joinery you aren't going to manage to put together much of anything. The author begins with a primer on joinery, and includes a useful table showing the types of joinery that are appropriate for solid wood, plywood and particleboard construction.
There is also a chart showing adhesive characteristics and typical uses. The rest of the book covers joints - butt, miter, lap and groove, mortise and tenon, dovetail, and box. For each joint the author tells you what it''s typically used for, and how to make the joint. Lots of good information here, and several useful jigs

Excellent joinery skills are paramount when it comes to woodworking and every woodworker must be able to execute precision joinery skills where needed. This book not only covers a myriad of woodworking joints and their variations, it explains how to become proficient at making them. It also includes countless tips on successful joinery through the use of shop built and store bought jigs. Gluing and clamping techniques are discussed along with joint stress and how to deal with it. How to cut perfect fitting joinery on the table saw, table mounted or hand held router or even by hand, it’s all covered here, presented in a clear and concise manner with hundreds of illustrations.

This book happens to be my favorite of this series and one that I’m constantly going back to. - GordGraff.com
