By Hand & Eye

By George R. Walker & Jim Tolpin Download an excerpt from this book here. “By Hand & Eye” is a deep dive into the world of history, architecture and design. And the authors have emerged with armloads of pearls for readers. Instead of serving up a list of formulas with magical names (i.e. the Golden Section, the Rule of Thirds) that will transform the mundane into perfection, George R. Walker and Jim Tolpin show how much of the world is governed by simple proportions, noting how ratios such…

The Essential Woodworker

Download an excerpt from this book here. By Robert Wearing In our opinion, “The Essential Woodworker” is one of the best books on hand-tool usage written in the post-Charles Hayward era.

As you read the chapter on building a table, Wearing connects the dots for the hand-tool user by showing how all the tools are used in concert to produce…

Japanese-Style Ebony Marking Gauges

Japanese-style gauges have tapered blades that cut wood fibers rather than tear them. This produces a fine cut-line, ideal for chisel registration and to prevent tear-out when sawing. These are well-made Indonesian ebony versions. The single-stem gauge has a wedge-secured 7" stem and a 4 3/4" long fence that is rounded on the underside for smooth travel over surfaces. For marking and mortise work, the double-stem gauge has a 5 3/8" long fence and 6" stems that secure with a thumbscrew…

The Anarchist's Tool Chest

Download an excerpt from this book here. By Christopher Schwarz When I am too exhausted, ill or busy to work in my shop, I will shuffle down the stairs to my 15' x 25' workshop and simply stand there for a few minutes with my hands on my tools. To be sure, I thought I was a touch nuts because of this personality quirk. But after reading the oral histories and diaries of craftsmen from the last 300 years, I found it's actually a common trait among artisans. I am drawn, married or perhaps…

With the Grain: A Craftsman’s Guide to Understanding Wood

Download an excerpt from this book here. By Christian Becksvoort A little knowledge about trees goes a long way toward improving your woodworking. You don’t need a degree in dendrology to build a desk. But you do need intimate knowledge of how our raw material grows and – more importantly – how it responds to its environment after it has been cut and dried. This knowledge allows you to tame the wood into the shapes that you have envisioned in your head. And it ensures that your furniture…
