Refine Your Power Tool Projects with Hand Tool Techniques
by The Editors of Popular Woodworking

If you’re a woodworker who uses hand tools, you may have gotten many comments over the years like, "Why should I spend $X on a plane when I could get a whole sanding system for less money?" or "I’m sure it would be nice not to set up the whole system I have, but you need real skills with those hand tools." So we’re pleased to see this new book from the editors of Popular Woodworking magazine, whose subtitle is "Refine Your Power Tool Projects with Hand Tool Techniques," and whose motto might be, "Hand and Power Tools Work Best Together." Hand Tool Essentials guides you through the selection - advising how to select the best tools, from old tools you’ll need to refurbish (and of course they’ll show you how) to today’s great reproductions of classic tools - and best use of saws, planes, chisels, marking knives, rasps, awls, spokeshaves and other hand tools. There’s even information about how to set up your hand tool shop and four projects for your new skills. A lot of the material is from articles in the magazine and was written by some of your favorite authors like David Charlesworth, Christopher Schwarz, and Adam Cherubini. There are however expansions and updates.The book is infused throughout with the wise philosophy that combining hand and power tool skills will make your woodworking experience more pleasant and efficient and your finished product even better. Softcover. 8 1/2" x 11".
