Detailed Description

Foundations of Better Woodworking. Author, Jeff Miller

How can you use your body, tools and materials to do your best work?

What's the secret to producing beautiful furniture that you and your family will treasure for generations?

It all starts with the fundamentals - those essential, yet often overlooked principles, upon which all of your skills should be based.

In The Foundations of Better Woodworking, (published in November, 2012) craftsman, teacher and noted woodworking author, Jeff Miller clearly lays out these basic concepts, helping you understand:

  • How proper body position and mechanics improve your ability to cut precise joints, as well as add to your efficiency and safety
  • Just what it means to cut to a line
  • How the wood works, so you can avoid such problems as tear out, splitting and warping - whether you use hand tools, machinery or both
  • How woodworking tools actually cut and work, so you can use them more easily, effectively and accurately

Follow the advice in this book and you will build the foundation for making significant advances as a woodworker. Your time in the shop will be more rewarding, and your results more satisfying.

Jeff Miller has been a professional furniture designer and craftsman for nearly 30 years. He is the author of three woodworking books (and a contributor to two others), including the best-selling Beds, and Chairmaking and Design. He teaches woodworking fundamentals and other classes around the country and at his studio in Chicago.
