This is an essential tool for the home workshop, in an easy-reference format with a lay-flat binding. It's like having a master carpenter at your elbow to answer whatever question arises, including: What's the difference between hardwood and softwood? How do I make base moulding fit tightly on the inside corners? How do I prevent splintering on the end of a board when I rout it? How do I taper cut a table leg? Is there any way to take the wobble out of a chair without taking the whole thing apart? And many more intriguing and useful questions. It is suitable for all skill levels. For beginners, this book answers the most fundamental questions: Which wood should I use for this bookcase? Why do I need three different grits of sandpaper? Intermediate and advanced woodworkers will find plenty of useful, sometimes surprising, information in the answers, tips, charts, and projects.
