About this item

An illustrated guide for the contemporary woodworker.

Woodworking: The Indispensable Guide is a comprehensive reference for woodworkers at all levels.

Beginners will find expert guidance on setting up a workshop and mastering the essential techniques. Detailed instructions show how to use hand tools as well as portable power tools. The versatile router gets a chapter all to itself and there is an extensive collection of woodworking joints -- the hallmark of the craft -- explained with detailed photographic sequences designed for clarity and simplicity. A chapter on veneers allows readers to create pieces with a truly professional feel, and there is also extensive advice on oils, waxes and other finishing treatments. There is also a section on the author's ten favorite wood varieties.

The author includes five specially selected projects organized by skill level which allow woodworkers to put their skills into practice. The detailed plans and step-by-step instructions show how to make a cabinet for tool storage, a breadboard with an integrated knife housing, a contemporary shelving unit, a fine side table and a beautiful veneered memory box. Troubleshooting clinics explain what to do if things don't turn out as expected with advice on how to get the project back on track.

Woodworking features a wealth of charts and tables. Helpful sidebars include Good Practice, Clinic, Try This! and Tools Needed. The broad coverage includes:
