A comprehensive pictorial index of Western hand tools, this book describes over 600 tools from the 18th century to the present. In addition to a brief outline of each tool’s use and history, it includes more than 570 hand-drawn illustrations and reproduced engravings depicting a wide range of examples. Alphabetical, fully cross-referenced listings make locating entries easier.

Although intended as a reference guide for woodworkers and tool collectors, the book covers such a diversity of tools (with more than 50 varieties of hand planes, for example) that it is a fascinating read for anyone with a love for tools.

Softcover, 8 1/2" × 11", 181 pages, 2015.
