The majority of woodworking projects require the use of straight lumber with square edges. Long ago, hand planes were used to create such an edge, but they are difficult to master without long hours of practice and are too slow for most modern woodworkers. Now, planers are most frequently used to produce smooth faces on a board and to mill it to a particular thickness, while jointers generally square the edges. Peters has done a great job of describing the types of tools available and their uses, repair, maintenance, and troubleshooting; he also discusses the construction of shop-made jigs and fixtures. Numerous colorful illustrations help explain the text. The development of relatively inexpensive bench-top models has made these tools much more common. Public libraries serving woodworkers should consider this title.
