Mr. Schwarz really turned it up a notch with the Anarchists Tool Chest. This book was a deviation from some of his other books that I have read in that it contained a story. The story was woven underneath the information about the essential toolkit that a woodworker should but together. Mr. Schwarz explains how to put together a set of tools that will help a woodworker complete all the essential taks. The text includes information about choosing the right tools and how to use them correctly. The end of the book is about putting together the appropriate chest to hold these tools and help them survive the passage of time both in the woodworkers life and beyond. Mr. Schwarz also nutures the idea that we don’t have to continue purchasing plywood crap; that we can be Anarchists by building quality furniture to fill our homes. I really enjoyed the book and think that it will be a great help in putting together the right tools for me to use in my woodworking. It will be most usefull in helping me avoid wasting money on tools that really arn’t essential. If you can’t do your work with these tools you probably just need to take some time and improve you skills.
