Let's begin in In that year, an English publisher issued a small book on woodworking that has — until now — escaped detection by scholars, historians and woodworkers. Titled "The Joiner and Cabinet Maker," this short book was written by an anonymous tradesman and tells the fictional tale of Thomas, a lad of 13 or 14 who is apprenticed to a rural shop that builds everything from built-ins to more elaborate veneered casework.

Festool Fest 2 Days! When i first read it, and now several years later, I still think it is one of the most important books on learning woodworking ever written, and gives us a great historical perspective on how woodworking was done in the pre-machine world. I sent the book to Chris Schwarz and we both knew it had to see the light of day again. I wrote the historical notes, Chris built and wrote about the projects in the book. I could give more details on the book which we will publish this fall but everyone knows Chris is a far better writer than I so rather than repeat what he has said I direct you to the Lost Arts Press website and Chris's blog entry. We of course will be taking advance orders for the book starting soon, and I hope you will be as excited by it as I.

The Joiner and Cabinet Maker is a huge book – with mo. an anonymous carpenter that was published in as a guide for boys wanting to take up the trade.

Building A Simple Book Case! Woodworking How To

Of all the books we sell I think "The Joiner and Cabinet Maker" is the single most important book available on hand tool usage. First published in , this fictional tale follows Thomas, a boy of 13 or so, who is apprenticed to a rural woodworking shop that builds everything from built-ins to veneered mahogany casework. Unlike other books of the period, "The Joiner and Cabinet Maker" focuses on how Thomas acquires the skills necessary to become a journeyman joiner. Thanks to this book, we can stop guessing at how some operations were traditionally performed, and read first-hand how joints were cut and casework was assembled. Along with tons of information on gluing, sawing, running a hand tool shop, and using chisels and other tools Thomas is given step by step instruction on three projects: a Packing Box, a dovetailed Schoolbox and a Chest of Drawers. Original copies of the book are extremely rare and Christopher Schwarz editor of Popular Woodworking and Woodworking Magazine and I decided to reprint the book with a lot of added detail. We've reprinted "The Joiner and Cabinet Maker," unabridged and unaltered.
