A new, up-to-date edition of the popular and comprehensive encyclopedia by award-winning furniture designer, Jeremy Broun.
This unique visual encyclopedia of techniques is the essential benchtop reference for all woodworkers. Divided into three parts, this first section introduces you to the tools, timbers and machines that are used and necessary to basic woodworking. Then, in A to Z format, woodworking techniques are fully demonstrated and described through helpful step-by-step photographs and text, from abrading and biscuit joints through to mortise and tenon joints and jigs. Power-tool and hand-tool variations are also fully detailed, providing you with that much-needed flexibility in your own workshop. Finally, a gallery of finished examples by leading craftspeople demonstrate the principles of design and construction, which will inspire both novice woodworkers as well as the more experienced craftsman.
