Description

From Spring House Press. By Vic Tesolin.

To enjoy woodworking, all you need is a few essential tools, a little bit of space, and the desire to make something with your own two hands. The Minimalist Woodworker is about making woodworking clean and simple – from the tools and the workspace to the easy-to-follow instructions. It eliminates the fears and excuses as it demystifies the craft. Written by Vic Tesolin, aka the Minimalist Woodworker, The Minimalist Woodworker is a stress-free approach to woodworking. Beginning with an understanding of the minimalist mindset, The Minimalist Woodworker quickly details how to make a small space productive and outlines the most efficient tools for a woodworker. Each piece of equipment is explained and instructions provided. Techniques for keeping each piece sharp and well-maintained are also detailed. Once space and tools are covered, seven projects are presented: a saw bench and matching saw horse; a Nicholson-style workbench; a shooting board/bench hook; a shop mallet;  and a small hanging cabinet. Each project not only develops woodworking skills, but also outfits a small shop. With step-by-step instructions, photos and illustrations, and an easy-going tone, The Minimalist Woodworker offers an informative, but stress-free point of entry into the life-long craft of woodworking.
