The Woodworker's Studio Handbook offers readers a comprehensive and accessible guide to not only the nuts and bolts of this perennially popular craft but insight into the artisan crafter's lifestyle. Much more than simple projects, this is the go-to reference for all home hobbyists. This book offers a thorough introduction to common, classic techniques, basic materials, a complete tool inventory, a comprehensive skills library, and 20 teaching projects that range from simple to intermediate. We take readers behind the scenes into a home wood shop so they can see where the sawdusty magic happens. Many books are strong in the basics but do not do enough to challenge us to stretch our imagination, experiment with new styles, and explore materials. Readers want creative challenge and stimulation, and author Jim Whitman delivers with this complete woodworking curriculum.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Woodworker and first-time author Whitman shines in this addition to Quarry s studio handbook series. Shop layout, tools, and materials are followed by a dozen projects that illustrate different techniques. The projects are organized well, with tools and materials lists and thumbnail instructional photos. The book s illustrations and design are top-notch and attractive. VERDICT: With its broad range of techniques and projects, this is more appropriate for an intermediate woodworker, as beginners will not have the needed equipment or skills. While more focused books on specific woodworking tools and techniques are available, this is a good overview. Recommended for larger public libraries." - Library Journal"
