  • Traditional Woodworking Handtools: A Manual for the Woodworker (Illustrated Workshop)

    For speed and production, but not necessarily quality, power tools are the norm in many amateur workshops. However, thanks to the maker movement, there is renewed interest among crafters and woodworkers in using traditional handtools. The personal satisfaction, the pleasure of hands-on work, and the more leisurely, contemplative approach to woodworking is replacing the need for the speed and noise of power tools. In Traditional Woodworking Handtools, the second volume in his Illustrated Workshop Series, Graham Blackburn has assembled a virtual encyclopedia of traditional woodworking handtools, including holding tools, saws, planes, edge tools, setting-out tools, boring tools, and striking tools. Each tool is listed and includes a full description of what it does and how it’s used. His engaging writing, which includes anecdotes from his four decades as a master woodworker, entertains as well as instructs. And the hundreds of line drawings of handtools are illuminating. While also a reference for anyone collecting or simply fascinated by handtools, Traditional Woodworking Handtools is a user’s guide for the woodworker and crafter, designed to help reintroduce many of these tried-and-true tools into today’s workshops.

  • Jim Tolpin's Woodworking Wit & Wisdom (Popular Woodworking)

    Did you know?The three most fundamental and essential tools can't be bought.Sanding is the slowest, most tedious, and most counterproductive way to prepare a surface for the clearest, richest finish.The absolute strongest bends are made without bending the wood.A scrap of tarpaper and a chunk of scrap wood comprise one of the most precise layout tools available to a woodworker.There is no such thing as a mistake in woodworking.Well, neither did I when I started working wood more than 30 years ago. But I sure wish I had learned these and a host of other essential woodworking concepts and techniques a lot sooner than I did - it would have saved me much anguish and frustration. However, I wasn't able to learn these fundamentals from books, shop classes, or TV woodworkers. Instead, I was fortunate enough to work with and learn from members of the last generation of traditionally apprenticed cabinetmakers and boat builders.The 60 essential lessons from the trade that I have recorded in this book are the first things I teach to my own kids in the hope that they will enjoy, as I have, a life of working wood with immeasurable pleasure, passion and purpose - and a minimum of wicked awful mistakes.Jim Tolpin

Although Thomas Lemuel Oates started Manual Woodworkers and Weavers in 1932, the story goes back further. The roots of the company can be found in Oates' entrepreneurial spirit. He and his brother used to farm the mountain areas of Bat Cave in western North Carolina. They would also help their mother find materials for her crafts. The sons began to make wooden whistles, buckets and bird-houses. They would sell their wares along with her crafts to the people from Charlotte that came through in their horse-drawn buggies on the way to the mountains. Later, Thomas worked at the Ashville Postcard Company. When the Depression hit, he lost his job, but it inspired him to go into business and sell crafts, like cornhusk dolls and woven pieces, that were produced by the local women.
