Antique Woodworking Tools - Woodworking
Antique Woodworking Tools - Woodworking
by David R. Russell

This is a stunning tool reference book. A presentation of Russell's significant collection of hand tools along with a thorough account of their historical context, beauty and craftsmanship, it contains more than 1500 entries, chronicling the evolution of woodworking tools from prehistory to the 20th Century.

The collection includes axes, anvils, saws, gauges, hammers, levels, plumb bobs and drawing instruments, with special emphasis on planes and drilling tools from Britain, Europe and North America.

Each tool entry has a color photograph and a description including the materials used in its making, country and town of origin, when it was made and by whom (makers' marks are shown), known patents, dimensions and, in many instances, published references to the tool or where it was last purchased at auction.

A complete index helps you find specific tool types and makers. Two ribbon bookmarks are stitched into the binding. A tremendous reference for woodworkers, collectors and anyone interested in the history of hand tools.

Hardcover, 10-1/4" X 13-3/4", 528 pages, 2010.
