Classic Joints with Power Tools
Yeung Chan

From Library Journal
Modern woodworkers rely on machines more than ever before, but the actual joints they use have changed little over the years. Most woodworking titles continue to show a combination of hand-tool and machine techniques, which does not reflect the way many people really work.

He describes a number of the most commonly used woodworking machines (the table saw, band saw, router, drill, mortiser, and biscuit joiner) and provides information for building several jigs that would increase both accuracy and safety. The joints range from easy (butt joints) to esoteric (mitered lap with...
