Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Strong, appropriate and well-fitting joints are one of the hallmarks of the skilled woodworker. Making them properly requires intelligent planning, accurate marking out, and a sufficient degree of care in the cutting, fitting and final assembly. A methodical approach is essential, and that is what this book provides. Professional woodworker Ralph Laughton takes us through the whole process, from choosing the appropriate joint for the purpose to assembling the finished piece. We learn about timber selection, tools and adhesives, but above all we learn the working methods and habits that are needed to achieve consistently good results. The emphasis throughout is on the traditional hand techniques that are still the essential foundation of the woodworker's skill.

Synopsis:

Joints that fit tightly and last for generations are a hallmark of the woodworker with pride of craftsmanship. Skills for making professional-quality joints are made much easier with the methodical and clear approach to the whole process designed by master craftsman Ralph Laughton. He starts with choosing the appropriate joint for the purpose, and ends with proper assembly for the finished piece. Along the way come what you need to know to select the right woods, tools, and adhesives, as well as ways to prepare, mark, measure, and cut each section. At every step you learn to master traditional hand techniques for butt joints and mitres, halved and saddle joints, mortise and tenon joints, dovetails, dadoes, dowels, biscuits and splines.
