Handsaw Essentials - Woodworking
by Christopher Schwarz & contributors to Popular Woodworking Magazine

Even expert woodworkers can find handsaws a daunting subject. This book, a compilation of articles and blog posts from Popular Woodworking magazine, offers a comprehensive overview of their design and use. The material demystifies the often puzzling details of tooth geometry, saw construction, sharpening and much more, so you can choose and use handsaws effectively.

Most of it is written by Christopher Schwarz, with contributions by Frank Klausz, Adam Cherubini and others, along with a complete reprint of the 1869 edition of H.W. Holly's classic sharpening book, The Art of Saw-Filing. Through historic and modern examples, the book examines the many types of saws available, along with the strengths and limitations of each. You'll find in-depth tool reviews on several leading brands of saws, as well as how-to articles that cover a wide range of techniques.

Both a practical manual for woodworkers and a helpful reference for tool collectors, it includes hundreds of photos in rich sepia-tone effects. Hardcover, 8-1/2" x 11", 312 pages, 2013.
