Of interest to craftspeople, this book explains for less accomplished workers how the right attitudes toward materials, tools, and time can increase the joys of this complex activity.
With continual themes of perfection of technique and building to the limits of one's skill, this authoritative resource provides in-depth instruction for mastering the craft of cabinetmaking. A bevy of topics, including the proper way to sharpen and hone tools, hollow grinding methodology, and obtaining proper grinding angles, are detailed in this comprehensive cabinet-making sourcebook.
This was the final book in Krenov's trilogy. It is an in depth, personal look at the do's and don'ts of creating fine furniture. This is both an educational and philosophical treatise. Cabinetmakers of all levels will be inspired by Krenov's understanding of the craft.
