A revised edition of Wearing's acclaimed 1988 text, this book is an invaluable reminder of many hand-tool basics that are often overlooked.

It covers a wide range of fundamental skills, techniques and woodworking wisdom, with chapters on making tables and stools, carcasses and drawers, and handles and boxes. Appendices provide detailed instructions for making several jigs and fixtures for use with hand tools.

With over 500 black-and-white drawings and photos that complement the text, the book is filled with information essential to anyone who uses hand tools, both beginners and experienced woodworkers.

Hardcover, 6" × 9", 253 pages. Reprinted in 2010.
