From the cover: “Enter the master craftsman’s studio and learn how to make woodworking joints with Tage Frid, the dean of American woodworking teachers. With 900 step-by-step photographs and 365 line drawings, Frid shares every ingenious method and hard-won skill that he’s found useful in 50 years of making furniture — with emphasis on both hand tools and common woodworking machines.
This book is for the woodworker who wants to learn how to choose the best joint for the job at hand, how to lay out each joint, and how to cut rt accurately and efficiently. Novice woodworkers will find Frid’s instructions complete and concise (he even gives tips on repairing the inevitable mistakes); intermediate and advanced craftsmen will find ample challenge in his more difficult tests of skill.”
