Shire Albums #50: Woodworking Tools Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mankind has been using wood since prehistoric times to build shelter, houses, containers, vehicles and implements and the tools and techniques used to shape and manipulate wood are thousands of years old. The basic tools were established by Roman times, but apart from the mechanization of carpentry, the majority of woodworking tools have changed little since then. This book examines the basic woodworking tools used throughout history, reflecting the astonishing variety of forms which these basic tools have assumed at different times and in different places.

About the Author

The late Philip Walker served in the army and was a schoolteacher before settling in Suffolk, where he spent his time lecturing, writing and working in wood. In 1983 he founded the Tool and Trades History Society.
