Improve your skills while enjoying your time in your shop. Written especially for those who canâ€™t devote all hours of their day to woodworking. Geared for real people - those who want to improve hand-tool and machine skills, but not willing to embark on a seven-year apprenticeship - this book is designed to help you enjoy your time in the shop. As you work through these pages, youâ€™ll learn how to work with and build on the skills and tools you already have. And when the sawdust settles, you should also have a few attractive pieces to add to your home or give to friends. My sincerest hope is that someone may look at one of your projects and say, "Wow, you made this yourself?"
