Overview

Sized for a shop apron, this handy reference is packed with tips and answers to all of your woodworking questions in an easy to read and quick to find format.

At-a-glance access to everything the woodworking professional or hobbyist needs to know is included in this reference. Details on the availability and use of various kinds of wood, hand and motorized tools, glues, wood fillers, and adhesives are provided along with pointers on sharpening edges, concocting effective solvents, and creating an efficient workspace. Chapters are color-coded and tabbed for easy accessibility, and the spiral binding allows the pages to lie flat on the workbench for hands-free reading.
