The Woodworker: The Charles H. Hayward Years Vol. III - Joinery
Ref: LAP-TW-VOL3


The latest book in the series "The Woodworker: The Charles H. Hayward Years." This book covers all types of woodwork joints, including how to design them, cut them and fix them when things go awry. The first two volumes in this series, Vol. I: Tools and Vol. II: Techniques, can be ordered here.

It’s difficult to overstate the importance of the book “Woodwork Joints” by Charles H. Hayward (1898-1998), which was first published in 1950 then reprinted many times and in several different editions of varying quality.

The compact 168-page book is beautifully illustrated by Hayward and contains the kind of spare prose that made him the best woodworking author of the 20th century. Like a good woodworking joint, Hayward’s text contains nothing superfluous and lacks nothing important to the task at hand.

So when Lost Art Press began planning this third volume of “The Woodworker: The Charles H. Hayward Years,” they used the 1954 edition of “Woodwork Joints” – a 5-1/2” x 8-1/5” folio printed by Evans Bros. Limited – as their guiding light.

Every illustration from “Woodwork Joints” had appeared in The Woodworker magazine, where Hayward was editor from 1939 to 1967. So as Lost Art Press read every magazine issue from those years for this book, they marked and scanned every magazine article on joinery to make sure they captured everything that could have ended up in “Woodwork Joints.” They almost succeeded.

The good news is that their efforts have produced a book that covers nearly all of Hayward’s writing on joinery during the 28 years he was editor at The Woodworker. And because of the nature of the magazine format, they were actually able to plumb much deeper into the details of cutting and fitting joints to include things that never made it into “Woodwork Joints.”

For example, Hayward wrote 20 pages on dovetails in “Woodwork Joints.” This book has 90 pages on dovetails, and the pages are much bigger (8-1/2” x 11”) than the 1954 edition. As a result, you’ll find far more information on the secret mitre dovetail, stopped dovetailed housings, decorative dovetails and the double-lap dovetail. Plus details on how to correct faults in your joints, how to avoid crushing the end grain when chopping out and even a novel way to cut both the tails and pins simultaneously.

In addition to Hayward’s take on joinery, this volume also contains the perspective of other British writers of the day that Hayward published in The Woodworker, including J. Maynard, Robert Wearing, K.J.S. Walker and C.A. Hewett.

So where do Lost Art Press think they have failed? Despite their best efforts to find them, this volume does not contain a couple short sections from “Woodwork Joints,” including hand-cut joints specifically for plywood and the use of metal fishplates with scarf joints.

Those faults aside, they think this volume is an admirable companion – if not a replacement – of “Woodwork Joints.” Lost Art Press hope this book becomes as ratty and thumbed-through as almost every copy of “Woodwork Joints” they have ever seen. That would be the best tribute ever to Hayward as his work continues to inspire the next generation of woodworkers.

Like all Lost Art Press books, “The Woodworker: The Charles Hayward Years” is produced and printed entirely in the United States. At 288 pages, it is printed on smooth acid-free #60 paper and joined with a tough binding that is sewn, affixed with fiber tape and then glued. The pages are covered in dense hardbound covers that are wrapped with cotton cloth.

Stanley Catalogue No. 34
Ref: LAP-SC34


More than 100 years ago, Stanley Tools printed handsome catalogues that illustrated the company's woodworking and carpentry tools with detailed illustrations and descriptions of how the tools worked.

Though few of these catalogues survive, they are an invaluable source of information for hand-tool users, offering exploded parts lists of complex tools - such as the No. 45 plane - and advice on how the tools should best be used.

The catalogues are also a helpful way to identify tools you might find at auctions etc. (Do do you need a clapboard gauge, a wantage rod or a board stick?)

For a long time, Lost Art Press have sought to publish a crisp and classy catalogue from the heyday of Stanley Tools’ production of woodworking tools. So they collected a bunch of catalogues and finally settled on one printed in 1914 - one of their favourite eras of Stanley’s output.

This catalogue contains all the planes, hand drills, measuring tools, chisels and hundreds more that are critical to a workshop, but without a lot of the oddball stuff that came later.

It is printed at exactly the same size as the original (5½" x 7½") on hard and smooth paper that mimics the original. It is wrapped in a heavy softbound cover that is printed in dark blue ink. The only significant change Lost Art Press made to their version was to sew the signatures for durability. Like all Lost Art Press books, this is produced entirely in the United States.
