Detailed Description

Working Wood 1 and 2 - The Artisan Course with Paul Sellers.
Author, Paul Sellers

This book is the core part of a course that represents the distilled experience and knowledge, developed over 47 years, of master craftsman, Paul Sellers. His remarkable journey saw him learn his trade as a traditional apprentice in England during the 1960s, and then progress, many years later, to design and make furniture for American Presidents.

Evident throughout this beautifully crafted book is Paul's love of woodworking and also of teaching. It is a source of inspiration as well as a complete woodworking system and philosophy.

The clarity of Paul's teaching is quite exceptional. Founded on twenty years experience during which he has taught over 3,000 woodworkers, the book progressively introduces new skills and techniques through projects, and then reinforces and expands on these as the reader progresses further. With over 800 color photos, diagrams and illustrations, every stage and technique is clearly explained and discussed.

Working Wood is a comprehensive course in hand tool woodworking. It is perfect for beginners just starting out and it is also invaluable resource for more advanced woodworkers to develop their skills and knowledge further.

The first part of the book will enable you to discover the simple concepts that surround the use of traditional hand tools and master aspects of woodworking in general. It introduces the mantra of "sharpness, accuracy, technique." By using only three joints and about ten hand tools, you will be introduced to the speed and efficiency of hand cut joinery.

The second part is all about mastering the core techniques of joinery through a series of hand built projects. Focusing on each of the three joints in turn, you will learn to master dovetailed boxes, bookcase making and the principles of table making. By using a combination of these joints, you will learn how to make your own European Workbench. Central to this entire course is a very thorough and comprehensive explanation of how to sharpen your tools, simply and quickly.

Most importantly, this book will teach you how, using just a few groups of basic hand tools, to make hundreds of projects while acquiring the skill and confidence of a real Artisan.

There is a 7 DVD collection which accompanies this book that is also available: Artisan Course With Paul Sellers - Book and 7 DVD Set (#202539)
