Woodworking Techniques and Projects
Book: Woodworking Techniques and Projects , by Anthony Bailey, ISBN10: 1861083564, ISBN13: 9781861083562, Guild of Master Craftsman Publications, Limited, October 2003, Paperback
Illustrated with nearly 300 color photographs and diagrams, this superb collection of Anthony Bailey's writings will please aspiring woodworkers hoping to improve their skills--as well as his many devoted followers. Taken from New Woodworking and The Router magazines, more than 30 articles provide essential practical guidance on virtually every aspect of the craft. There's time and money-saving advice on the best equipment to use for specific tasks (including Bailey's favorite tool, the biscuit jointer); detailed explanations of workshop techniques; and precise accessible instructions on how to make a diverse range of beautiful wood pieces at home. Among the projects: a pine fireplace surround, CD rack, game board, and under-bed drawer. This important guide is certain to become a mainstay of the woodworker's bookshelf.
Over the years, Bailey, the in-house photographer of the Guild of Master Craftsman, has written several articles for New Woodworking and the Router magazines. This title collects more than 30 of those articles, covering biscuit jointers, numerous project plans, and two series. Bailey is particularly adept at the use of his favorite tool, the biscuit joiner; readers are offered eight articles that cover standard operations plus a number of advanced techniques such as making decorative moldings. Projects range from a blanket chest to a chessboard to a three-part series on crafting a bed. The eight-part "Mechanics of Making" takes a project from design through completion and shows how professional woodworkers would organize their work to maximize efficiency. The three-part "Machining" section, which illustrates cutting wood to size, includes a number of products unavailable to North American woodworkers and will be less useful than the rest of the book. Illustrated throughout in color, this will be a welcome addition to in-depth woodworking collections. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
