Classic joints with power tools.

By: Yeung Chan 2002

ISBN-13: 9781579902797
ISBN-10: 15799027908

This guy is an inspiration!
The book are excellent, really good illustrated in pictures and drawing, good explanations.
And the work of Chan are so delicate and with so simple jigs, that I have to bend in the sawdust for this guy.

A book for the all! No matter what level of woodworking you are, I’m sure this book can inspire.
- to see his works in the back of the book, makes you lose your breath!

Buy it!

Best thoughts,
MaFe

Mads- did you have me in mind when you posted this? :) I will have to invest in this book- though I don’t have a hand held biscuit joiner, power planer etc. etc. Buy maybe someday I will- and the book looks inviting. :) Thanks.

I have also had this book since it came out. I found out about it taking a class that Yeung was teaching. His teaching is as outstanding as his book.
