Modern Practical Joinery: A Treatise on the Practice of Joiner’s Work by Hand and Machine, for the Use of Workmen, Architects, Builders, and Machinists.

Description

I would not consider this book a practical “how to” guide for window restorers. Rather, it is a fascinating glimpse of woodworking raised to an extremely high level. I do recommend it for those with a deep interest in woodworking and traditional craftsmanship.

Originally written in 1902, by George Ellis, this reprint of the 3rd edition is a very detailed and comprehensive overview of very best practices from the time.

George Ellis was a lecturer of carpentry and joinery at the London County Council School of Building. This book represents the distillation of 27 of his lectures.

A classic treatise on the practice of joiners’ work by hand and machine. This book covers a range of aspects of joinery including stair building, handrailing, doors and paneling, windows and shutters.

Illustrated with meticulous pen and ink drawings. Ellis is expert at presenting very complex concepts clearly and concisely.

"Holy Moly!!! Just got the email about the new (TL 01) Thumb Latches you're making! I'm sure I'm not the only one to send you one of my old ones/ inquire about availability, but you sure make a guy feel heard! This shows once again why I forgo the cheap imitations online for the stuff you make… forward thinking and responsive with your (re)-innovating product offerings. 5 years I've been looking for these. I'll be buying some this week! It's amazing that any company today is as nimble and responsive as you are for your customers. Now that I can get the Thumb Latches I can finally refurb the windows in my 1774 house without thinking I'm only able to do it "half way". I'm going home tonight and will tally up the quantity and finishes and order them tomorrow!Babcock Patent Lock Richard W."
