English | Publisher: Taunton Press | ISBN-10: 1561584002 | 304 pages | PDF | 23.23 MB
The first volume in Taunton's three-part "Complete Illustrated Guides" series, this title is intended as a bench-top reference guide showing the many ways of shaping wood (cutting, edge treatments, decorative techniques, turning, and carving). Techniques of all types and complexity are covered, usually including several means to accomplish each task, such as using hand or power tools. Profusely illustrated with drawings and photos, this book offers something for every woodworker. This title, along with the other two in the series (The Complete Illustrated Guide to Furniture and Cabinet Construction, Taunton, 2001, and The Complete Illustrated Guide to Joinery, Taunton, 2002), will be a welcome addition to any woodworking collection.
