Detailed Description

To Make as Perfectly as Possible : Roubo on Marquetry

Author, André-Jacob Roubo
Edited by Donald C. Williams, Michele Pietryka-Pagán and Philippe Lafargue.

To Make as Perfectly as Possible, (Andre Roubo's early work recently translated from Frenchinto English) is a true classic that reveals an authentic look inside the work of an 18thcentury cabinet shop.

While the book's subtitle is Roubo on Marquetry, the book in fact covers a much widerrange of topics essential to hand tool woodworking. Grinding and sharpening tools,selecting wood, staining and finishing, building a workbench, and constructing aclock-case are just a few examples.

Perhaps equally important are the book's historical insights into the world ofEuropean woodworking in the 1700s. Roubo has a way of communicating his observations that transcends thepassage of time, and will be a valuable source of inspiration to today'swoodworker.
