Detailed Description

Essential Woodworking Hand Tools - Book
Author, Paul Sellers

With this book, Paul wants to pass on not just his knowledge of hand tools but his enjoyment of them too. Hand tool woodworking provides a direct connection to wood as a raw resource for creating. It allows you to create, in a small amount of space, lasting items of use and beauty. None of this is possible, however, without the tools themselves. This book is intended as an important link that will help you to make good choices in purchasing, sharpening, and beginning to use the tools that you need to build things from wood.

Essential Woodworking Hand Tools contents:

  • Sharpening & Sharpening Equipment
  • Layout Tools
  • Chisels & Gouges
  • Planes
  • Saws
  • Scraping & Abrading Tools
  • Hammers
  • Notes on Tool Care

Hardcover. 480 pages. ISBN 978-0-9934423-0-8

About the Author:

Paul Sellers trained as a woodworker through an apprenticeship that started in 1965. He has taught thousands of people woodworking through courses in the US and UK. He is an advocate for his craft and has reached many more people by recording instructional videos of woodworking techniques and broadcasting them via the internet. Paul is dedicated to ensuring that woodworking is an accessible craft that anyone can enjoy.

Paul writes and presents videos on woodworking that are intended to provide accessible instruction to those who will likely never be able to go through apprenticeship training as he did. Although Paul has earned a living as a woodworker, for most of his working life he refers to himself as an "amateur woodworker" because, like those he teaches, he still does it primarily for love of the craft.
