The Complete Guide to Joint-Making, Book

Strong, appropriate, and well-fitting joints are one of the hallmarks of the skilled woodworker. Making them properly requires intelligent planning, accurate layout, and a sufficient degree of care in cutting, fitting, and final assembly. That's the approach author John Bullar pursues in this essential guide. He walks readers through choosing the appropriate joint for its intended purpose and continues methodically through constructing and finally assembling the finished pieces. He also covers lumber selection, tools, and adhesives, and offers recommendations for the working methods and habits that are needed to achieve consistently good results. 176 pages. About the Author: John Bullar designs and makes bespoke furniture to commission from his workshop in Cheshire, in northwest England. His unique style is a combination of the Arts and Crafts methods handed down to him by his grandfather and his own contemporary re-interpretation of it. John is a prolific contributor to many woodworking magazines and the author of Cabinetmaking: A Foundation Course.
