Rate this:

Hand tools are essential to woodworking, but, unlike power tools, they don't come with detailed owner's manuals. Think of this book as the missing manual for your hand tools.

Peter Korn covers virtually all the hand tools in the modern woodshop. For convenience, tools are listed alphabetically within chapters organized by function (abrading, cutting, planing, sawing...).

Beautifully illustrated, The Woodworker's Guide to Hand Tools explains:

what each tool is used for which tools are essential for your shop how to recognize quality when buying tools how to tune up tools for top performance and, in many cases, how to use each tool efficiently
