Joined: A Bench Guide to Furniture Joinery
By: Joshua A. Klein Many woodworking how-to books have a distinctly clinical feel to them, taking a formulaic approach (complete with exploded computer-drafted imagery) to describe a woodworking process from start to finish. This method works well for conveying precise measurements and details for replicating a specific piece of furniture, but falls short when it comes to capturing the whole point...

These are precious pieces that are auctioned, collected,...

Somewhere in between tool descriptions (what they are and what they do) and step-by-step project tutorials, we are missing something vital. We may understand what a backsaw is, or what a hatchet is capable of… but how do we actually do it? How do we engage the wood with these tools? And how do we confidently proceed through...
