Detailed Description

Handsaw Essentials. Author, Christopher Schwarz

Once you master the use of handsaws, there is no other tool in the hand-tool woodworker’s kit that is as powerful. If you can see and follow a line – any line – you can cut the line. There’s no need for crazy setups or jigs; just grab the right saw and start cutting – any angle, any shape. Complex joinery becomes no more than a series of lines to cut on your stock. Yet many woodworkers – from beginners to professionals – are intimidated by handsaws.

Handsaw Essentials – compiled from more than a decade’s worth of blogs and magazine articles on saws and sawing – will change that.

Christopher Schwarz and other folks associated with Popular Woodworking Magazine help you choose the right saw for your budget and project, use it successfully and keep it cutting like new. Includes expert instruction from Schwarz, Frank Klausz, Adam Cherubini, Megan Fitzpatrick, Robert W. Lang, Glen Huey and more. You'll find 15 chapters (more than 300 pages!) on all types of handsaws, from panel saws to frame saws, dovetail saws to Japanese saws, as well as technique instruction, saw storage ideas and more. Plus, it includes W.H. Holly's 1896 book "The Art of Saw Filing," which will teach you how to keep all your saws sharp and ready to cut.
