With woodworking fast becoming one of the most popular pastimes in the country, The Collins Complete Woodworker, from the editors of Woodworker's Journal, is the perfect introduction for anyone wanting to get better acquainted with this rewarding hobby. Written in an easy-to-understand style and accompanied by hundreds of full-color photographs and illustrations, this encyclopedic reference covers tools and techniques in 16 lively chapters. The chapters on woodworking equipment range from simple hand tools to stationary powered machinery (and just about everything in between) and explain not only how different tools work but their roles in the shop, with a special emphasis on safety. Separate chapters are devoted to specific types of woodworking such as carving, woodturning, and veneering, while other chapters provide in-depth coverage of the materials of woodworking, from hardwood to hardware. There are even special sections offering projects to challenge your growing skills, tips on shop resources, and a glossary of woodworking terminology.Whether you have already discovered the lure of the wood shop or are just getting started, The Collins Complete Woodworker is the reference you've been looking for.For more than three decades, Woodworker's Journal (woodworkersjournal.com) has chronicled the development of new woodworking tools, techniques, and materials. The magazine's team of editors works closely with one of the largest pools of talented writers in the woodworking field today to inform, inspire, and motivate readers to continue developing their skills. Well-known and widely published authors such as Michael Dresdner, Ian Kirby, Frank Klausz, Bill Hylton, Chris Marshall, Sandor Nagyszalanczy, and Scott Phillips have helped to make Woodworker's Journal America's leading woodworking authority.Published six times a year, Woodworker's Journal tests and reviews new tools and equipment, explains key shop techniques, and offers a broad range of projects for woodworkers of all skill levels. Woodworker's Journal provides the knowledge and inspiration readers have come to rely on to hone their skills.
