Detailed Description

New Traditional Woodworker : From Tool Set to Skill Set to Mind Set. Author, Jim Tolpin

Learning traditional woodworking methods means you are interested in working with wood not just machining it and you will be relieved to learn that expensive powered machinery isn't required to build furniture. You can also forget the dust masks, face shields and hearing protection since many of the safety concerns related to woodworking - the use of power tools - are eliminated. In this book, you'll learn to set up a hand-tool woodworking shop, then discover the toolset, practice the skillset, and understand the mindset - effectively completing a comprehensive course in hand-tool woodworking.

In the New Traditional Woodworker, you will learn how to set up a woodworking shop in which hand-powered tools will be your primary means for making furniture projects - just as they were for artisans up to the generation of our grandparents. Unlike working wood with machines, hand-tool woodworking requires far less space and expense, makes almost no dust or noise, and incurs little danger. Your woodworking shop could be a spare room in your house, and your spouse and children would be safe being with you while you work.

As Jim Tolpin guides you through the process of making a set of simple, yet essential, wooden layout tools and accessories for your workbench, you will learn the toolset, practice the skillset, and understand the mindset that you need to make furniture efficiently and enjoyably by hand. When you have completed these projects, you will have effectively completed a comprehensive course in hand-tool woodworking.
