Vol. III of The Woodworker: The Charles H. Hayward Years: Joinery

$44.00

“The Woodworker: The Charles H. Hayward Years” series covers all types of woodwork joints, including how to design them, cut them and fix them when things go awry. Illustrations and prose cover the secret mitre dovetail, stopped dovetailed housings, decorative dovetails and the double-lap dovetail. Plus details on how to correct faults in joints, how to avoid crushing the end grain when chopping out and even a novel way to cut both the tails and pins simultaneously. We think this book will become as ratty and thumbed-through as almost every copy of “Woodwork Joints” we’ve seen and inspire another generation of woodworkers.

Description

The third book in our “The Woodworker: The Charles H. Hayward Years” series covers all types of woodwork joints, including how to design them, cut them and fix them when things go awry.

It’s difficult to overstate the importance of the book “Woodwork Joints” by Charles H. Hayward (1898-1998), which was first published in 1950 then reprinted many times and in several different editions of varying quality.

The compact 168-page book is beautifully illustrated by Hayward and contains the kind of spare prose that made him the best woodworking author of the 20th century. Like a good woodworking joint, Hayward’s text contains nothing superfluous and lacks nothing important to the task at hand.

Every illustration from “Woodwork Joints” had appeared in The Woodworker magazine, where Hayward was editor from 1939 to 1967. Lost Art Press took care to read every magazine issue from those years and the book covers nearly all of Hayward’s writing on joinery.  As a result, readers will find information on the secret mitre dovetail, stopped dovetailed housings, decorative dovetails and the double-lap dovetail. Plus details on how to correct faults in joints, how to avoid crushing the end grain when chopping out and even a novel way to cut both the tails and pins simultaneously.
