From the cover: Home maintenance and improvement inevitably involve working with wood, and wood-working is the most useful skill that the home handyman can learn.
This introduction to the techniques, materials and equipment required, illustrated with numerous simple diagrams and clear photographs, starts with the basic rules and leads the handyman to a complete knowledge and development of abilities to a high standard. The special needs of jointing wood are carefully described and a section is devoted to wood turning.
Finally, the author sets out a varied series of individual projects to turn these lessons to immediate use and profit. They range from a garden bench to an all-purpose storage unit.
