    Covers setting up a hand tool woodworking shop and basic hand tool skills No bench plans this book does not cover religion You won t learn much furniture making or advanced joinery either except incidentally while building the shop projects I have built the ripping sawhorse, very useful for a hand tool wood shop though my brother the carpenter said to splay those legs 15 degrees A good beginners book.
