Publisher Comments:

In the best-selling tradition of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, these refreshing and insightful essays from master carpenter Jeff Taylor illuminate the spiritual aspects of working with hand tools. Bound with the look of real wood, this hardcover volume explores the beauty and function of these tried and true instruments and captures the extraordinarily intimate connection between people and their tools. Accompanied by rich, textured photographs of each tool, this simple, elegant, and engaging book is for anyone who enjoys building, fixing, and working with hand tools — and it makes a handsome addition to any toolbox.

This is a stunning book--stylistically the writing could hardly be better, and as to content, the voice is gentle, wise, and wry. Once you've read this book you've acquired a valuable friend.

This book is not only for anyone who loves tools, it's for anyone who loves words.
