First Sentence
In one sense, tools are simply things of steel and wood, attractive to the eye, perhaps even beautiful in their efficient lines, functional design, and appealing contrasts of texture and color. Read the first page

This book is a good one for those just starting to use hand tools as it covers most basic hand tools and how to use them. It is well written and the many illustrations and diagrams help to make clear concepts that might be difficult to understand otherwise. It does not have a lot of information on more specialized tools and is mostly limited to tools one would find in England.

Really handy to have as a reference for a small workshop. Good with identification of tools, and with taking care of and using them.

wow. this book is simply gorgeous. for a beginner like me it is a very informative coverage on the art of woodworking. beautifully and clearly illustrated on every page it teaches.
not only does it explain the hows and whys of hand tools' functions/application but also give plenty of tips and advice on how to avoid (costly) mistakes.

Format: Paperback
I have recently taken an interest in woodworking. Being someone who like to learn about the theories before actually doing anything, I started buying and reading a number of woodworking books, and doing some experimenting and practicing with the information I learned.
This book is the most useful one that I have read yet. It is extrememly easy to read, and captures the basic techniques for using a number of common hand tools. The chapter on chisels is one of my favorites, and the chapter on planes has clearer instruction on how to use different type of planes than another book of mine that talks only about planes.
Reading this book after reading other "how to" books about joinery, furniture, etc. clarifys a lot of things, making the picture complete so to speak.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone

Format: Paperback
This book is an excellent primer for anyone interested in woodworking with handtools. Clear illustrations identify tool particulars and correct usage and maintenance of each. All woodworking handtools from handplanes to screwdrivers are included. Also included is an appendix listing essential handtools for any woodshop. I have found this appendix, and the book itself, indispensable.
