Book News Annotation:

Blandford provides 1001 tips for all elements of woodworking, for amateurs, beginners, and professionals who build items as small as models to those as large as houses. He collected tips from those he submitted to British, American, and other magazines as early as 1930. Tips are brief, with diagrams, and numbered and arranged by type, including preparation and layout, bench, hand tools, workshop techniques, joints, cramping, power and machine tools, routing, lathework, finishing, sharpening, and advice for household work. The book uses English woodworking terms, but there is a comparison of English and American terms at the end. Sizes are metric. There is no index. Blandford is a craft writer and the author of many books. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
