Measure Twice, Cut Once

From Library Journal
Abram, star of TV's New Yankee Workshop and This Old House, is renowned for having more power tools than a well-stocked home center. Regular viewers will therefore be surprised to see that here he deals mainly with hand tools. Abram covers items such as levels, chalk lines, and plumb-bobs, detailing his experiences with them and his preferences. Unlike power tools, these tools aren't exciting, but they're the meat-and-potatoes tools that must be mastered to do good carpentry. This type of information is passed down from generation to generation, and it is in this spirit that Abram dedicates his book to his late father, also a carpenter. Even experienced woodworkers will pick up a tip or two from this book. Given Abram's name recognition, his book will appeal both to woodworkers and to TV viewers. Recommended for...


Timberframe

Paperback

Book Review
Unlike conventional framing, which is destined to be hidden by other building materials, timberframe homes leave massive beams and smaller supports exposed to be seen and admired as a finished and an architectural element. Tedd Benson divides Timberframe: The Art and Craft of the Post-and-Beam Home into four sections--"In the Country," "On the Water," "In the Mountains," and "In Addition"--to reveal how the proud owners of timberframe dwellings strive to make those architectural elements fit their surroundings. This is not a how-to book--though there are plenty of sketches and even a few simplified plans sprinkled among 400 color photos--as much as an effort to foster appreciation and inspiration of this unique home style. With case-by-case overviews of 29 American homes from coast to coast, Benson explores a craftsmanship...


The New Yankee Workshop

Paperback

From Library Journal
This book and the PBS series of the same name are spin-offs of the very popular This Old House TV series. Emphasizing traditional methods of joinery adapted to the use of power tools, this handsome volume covers a dozen furniture projects of classic Shaker and Colonial design. An abundance of high-quality photos and drawings nicely augment the detailed instructions. This seems to be for the more experienced woodworker having access to an especially well-equipped workshop. An introductory chapter, intended to present the basics of tools, joinery techniques, and wood selection, likewise appears far too sketchy for the novice furniture builder. Whatever its audience, public libraries will probably find this in demand.- Bill Demo, Tompkins Cortland Community Coll., Dryden, N.Y.Copyright 1989 Reed Business Information,...

The function of power tools is to enhance the speed and force of those tasks originally performed by hand tools, but as useful as power tools are, there are still many tasks which simply cannot be done with a power tool. Mastering basic hand tool use is crucial to any renovation or repair around the house, and this book lays out the basic collection of important hand tools needed by any do-it-yourselfer, explains their purpose and proper use, and will give any beginner the practical information necessary to get started. It is generously illustrated with color photographs of new and historic tools. --Mark A. Hetts
