Introduction To Woodworking 1920 combines two essential William Fairham books of the early 20th century: Woodwork Tools And How To Use Them and Woodwork Joints: How They Are Set Out, How Made, And Where Used.
Woodwork Tools And How To Use Them. William Fairham discusses the use, sharpening and adjustment of hand saws, hand planes, boring tools, chisels, scrapers and all manner of miscellaneous shop tools. Included are chapters of the woodworking shop machinery common to this period.
Woodwork Joints: How They Are Set Out, How Made, And Where Used, Revised Edition. William Fairham authored both the first and revised editions of Woodwork Joints. Included in this republication is the revised edition. Comprehensively updated by Fairham, the revised edition features line drawings and explanatory text for all of the major woodworking joints as well as those that are exotic or specific to a particular need.
Introduction To Woodworking 1920 gives the aspiring, the intermediate as well as the advanced woodworker a solid education in the hand tool skills of the period.
