Back by popular demand, these classic woodworking titles from Fine Woodworking magazine are filled with first-rate information that is as timeless now as it was when first published. Hand tools are essential to woodworking, but, unlike power tools, they don't come with detailed owner's manuals. Think of this book as the missing manual for your hand tools. Peter Korn covers virtually all the hand tools in the modern woodshop. For convenience, tools are listed alphabetically within chapters organized by function (abrading, cutting, planing, sawing...) The Woodworker's Guide to Hand Tools is beautifully illustrated and provides all the information you need to get the best out of your tools. You'll learn: what each tool is used for, which tools are essential for your shop, how to recognize quality when buying tools, how to tune up tools for top performance, and, in many cases, how to use each tool efficiently. This comprehensive guide is a must-have reference for every woodworker.

Many of the tools are familiar, but others will surprise you with their usefulness.
