Wednesday, December 3, 2008

toolBy Monte Burch

For many woodworkers, buying new tools can mean a lot of guesswork and experimentation. Tool School eliminates the trepidation, saves time, and allows woodworkers to start using their tools correctly and safely. It covers everything from what to look for when purchasing tools to correct usage for safety and accuracy. Both portable and stationary woodworking tools are covered through extensive photography and illustrations. These days most tools come with what amounts to a pamphlet of safety advice that contains little information about how things work—this book is the missing instruction manual.
