Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:


Japanese tools are manufactured to perform at the high level top craftspeople demand, but they work differently than Western tools: saws cut on the pull, not the push, and need to be properly maintained to provide decades of useful service. Covering four major tool categories (plus sharpening stones) the authors guide the woodworker or hobbyist step by step, using detailed line drawings and concise how-to explanations.

Synopsis:

Essential information for hobbyists and professionals; fully illustrated
