This is a practical handbook to the construction of cabinet furniture, with information on the use of tools, formation of joints, hints on designing and setting out work, veneering, and other related aspects. Comprehensive and accessible, this volume is ideal for the novice woodworker, and would make for a worthy addition to any collection. Contents include: Review of Development of Furniture, Furniture Woods, Glue and its Preparation, Nails, Tools, Wooden Appliances made by the User, Grinding and Sharpening Tools, General Directions on the Use of Tools, Joints, Decorative and Minor Structural Details, etc. Many vintage books like this are becoming increasingly rare and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality addition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on woodworking."
