This book review is from the February 2012 issue of our LumberJocks’ eMag Toolemera (Gary Roberts) is donating another book for a free draw! (See below for details)Woodwork Tools and how to use them This book, another one by William Fairham, is, in my opinion, another great book for woodworkers interested in learning all about hand tools, although there is some information about power tools in the book. Information includes the parts of the tools, how to use the tool, when to use the...

This review is from the January 2012 issue of our LJ eMag. Toolemera.com is donating another book for a free draw! (See below for details)The Art of Mitering “The Art of Mitering” is written by Owen Maginnis in 1892.
