The best furniture makers in the world are ready to pass their secrets on to you! Traditionally, craftsmen learn the tricks of the trade from one another in the shop, so those working alone have lacked this valuable resource...until now. This compilation, drawn from Furniture & Cabinetmakingmagazine, is like spending years as the apprentice to a master woodworker. All the authors are the acknowledged experts in their field. The incredible variety of subjects covered includes caring for and using hand tools, chamfering, fuming wood, and servicing and using machinery. A lively exchange takes place over the comparative merits of veneering by hand or with a vacuum press, and a series of seven articles by Tim Judson unravels the mysteries of hand finishing. Whether you want to make a wooden jack plane, recondition a secondhand table saw, or fit doors in a confined space, you'll hit upon the best way to do it.
