Description

Edited by Charles H. Hayward, originally published in 1949, “The Woodworker’s Pocket Book” is a guide to everything from finishing recipes to drawing ellipses to choosing the correct screw or nail.

Lost Art Press reprinted the original edition which is packed with drawings from Hayward and focuses on bench working and hand tools.  In other words, it’s for the woodworker who likes working by hand using fractions, inches and feet. The book covers topics and skills including angels, arches, chisels, ellipse drawing, fittings, hardwoods, planes, veneers and much more. 

The book literally fits in your back pocket and a tiny but powerful 4 x 6.5″. However, it belongs in the shop amongst your other tools.
