Christopher Schwarz, THE ANARCHIST'S TOOL CHEST
Ref: LAP-ATC


This book paints a world where woodworking tools are at the centre of a life filled with creating furniture that will last for generations. It makes the case that you can build almost anything with a kit of less than 50 high quality tools and it shows you how to select real working tools, regardless of their vintage or brand name. The Anarchist's Tool Chest guides you through building a proper chest for your toolkit that follows ancient rules long forgotten or ignored. It makes the argument that building the chest and filling it with the right tools just might be the best thing you can do to save our craft.
