9780007164424: Collins Complete Woodworker's Manual

A completely revised, redesigned and updated edition of the definitive and bestselling woodworker’s bible.

Authoritative, superbly crafted and easy to use, Collins Complete Woodworker's Manual is the UK bestseller and the one book every woodworker needs.

This revised edition has been extensively rewritten and contains new photographs and illustrations. It includes new products and techniques developed since the last edition.

Every stage in crafting furniture and other decorative pieces are fully explained starting with the basics; the nature of wood, the tools required and setting up a workshop. The book then examines the principles of three-dimensional design from inspiration to construction.

Step-by-step illustrations demonstrate how to make every type of joint and all the major crafts are given detailed coverage with the same step-by-step approach: bending wood, veneering and marquetry, woodcarving and finishing.

The book also includes a chapter on using other materials, such as metal, glass and leather in combination with wood, plus a chapter on fixings and fittings.

From the Back Cover:

'Collins Complete Woodworker's Manual 'is the most comprehensive and up-to-date illustrated book on woodworking. Beginning with the raw material, it reveals the characteristics of every major softwood and hardwood, its stunning colour photographs even detailing the effect of a clear finish on the colour of each species.

In an exciting departure from the usual project-oriented books on woodworking, ' Collins Complete Woodworker’s Manual' takes you through every process of three-dimensional design. Actual designer's sketches illustrate the basic principles of chair, table and storage-unit construction – and provide a plunder-chest of ideas for selecting everything from the best joint for the job to the most efficient order of assembly.

Whatever the task, a woodworker turns to the tool kit. This book boasts an unrivalled illustrated survey of every type of tool – from the bench plane to the power router, and a Japanese saw to a universal machine – and each is comprehensively described to help the novice, inform the tool buyer and assist the experienced woodworker to plan and stock a safe machine shop.

The accomplished woodworker needs a wide range of skills and techniques. None is more critical than joint-making – to which ' Collins Complete Woodworker’s Manual' devotes a whole chapter of photographic examples, working text and step-by-step drawings of every type of joint. Whether it is woodcarving, veneering or marquetry, bending or finishing wood, the book provides detailed coverage of those crafts that are so appealing to every woodworker. There is even advice on using such materials as metal, glass, marble and leather in combination with wood. Add to this a comprehensive range of fixings and fittings – from the latest in adhesives to locks and handles – and you have everything you need to complete the job.

Authoritative, superbly crafted and easy to use, ' Collins Complete Woodworker's Manual ' is the one book every woodworker needs.
