From the cover: The Complete Book of Woodwork is recognised as a standard work for anyone who wishes to learn about the craft to an advanced level.
It deals authoritatively with the care and use of tools and suggests a basic kit for the beginner. The use of light machines is also included since many people nowadays use power tools. The chapters on construction include carcasses, doors, window frames, drawers and, of course, joints. There are also chapters on veneering, woodcarving and woodturning.
The final section of designs, with fully dimensioned drawings, clear construction sketches and cutting lists offers enthusiastic woodworkers the maximum of practical aid to start work on their own.
This new edition has been completely revised and includes both metric and imperial measurements.
Good+ in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper faded at the spine and onto the margins of the panels. Pages lightly age-tanned.
