Description

This comprehensive and practical book demystifies the all-important subject of choosing, designing, and cutting woodworking joints. Strong, appropriate, and well-fitting joints are one of the hallmarks of the skilled woodworker. Making them properly requires intelligent planning, accurate marking out, and a sufficient degree of care in the cutting, fitting, and final assembly. A methodical approach is essential, and that is what this book provides. Professional woodworker John Bullar takes us through choosing the appropriate joint for the purpose to assembling finished pieces. We learn about timber selection, tools and adhesives, but above all we learn the working methods and habits that are needed to achieve consistently good results. The traditional hand techniques that are still the essential foundation of the woodworker’s skill are fully explained. The section on machine-made joints covers every power tool needed for joints and how to get the best results from everything from a biscuit jointer and bandsaw to the router.
