The New Traditional Woodworker
From Tool Set to Skill Set to Mind SetBook - 2010
"In The New Traditional Woodworker, you will learn how to set up a woodworking shop in which hand-powered tools will be your primary means for making furniture projects--just as they were for artisans up to the generation of our grandparents. Unlike working with machines, hand-tool woodworking requires far less space and expense, makes almost no dust or noise, and incurs little danger. Your woodworking shop could be a spare room in your house, and your spouse and children would be safe being with you while you work. As Jim Toplin guides you through the process of making a set of simple, yet essential, wooden layout tools and accessories for your workbench, you will learn the toolset, practice the skillset, and understand the mindset that you need to make furniture efficiently and enjoyably by hand. When you have completed these projects, you will have efficiently completed a comprehensive course in hand-tool woodworking."--Page 2 of cover.
