Product description

From Library Journal

This volume attempts to aid novice or intermediate woodworkers in improving their skills to the point of craft. The differences are subtle, but Korn (director, Center for Furniture Craftsmanship) explains them with forethought and knowledge. He examines different properties of wood, design considerations, joinery, and tools and lumber properties, culminating in the demonstration of two projects that integrate much of the information from the previous chapters. His style is open, encouraging, and slightly contemplative. Not a primer, this book is geared toward thinking about the issues. Recommended for comprehensive woodworking collections. (Index not seen.)-- Alex Hartmann, Bloomsburg Univ. Lib., Pa.
