Library Journal Review

Power tools are a ubiquitous part of modern woodworking but, for most of history, hand tools were the standard. Rae, a professional furniture maker who has contributed to and edited a number of woodworking magazines, offers a wealth of information about the selection, care, and use of nearly every kind of hand tool: vices and workbenches, marking and measuring tools, and hammers, screwdrivers, drills, files, chisels, planes, and saws. Sharpening instructions are included, and each entry is profusely illustrated with color photos. This title will prove to be a valuable resource for woodworkers and should be part of public library woodcraft collections. (c) Copyright 2010.
