Format: Hardcover
Langsner's book is one of the finest and most comprehensible woodworking guides on the market. Langsner writes with an enthusiasm and clarity that keeps the reading engaging, though the book is more interesting to readers with at least rudimentary experience with woodworking. Most importantly, he is not so vague that his projects could not be duplicated by an amateur, but he is not so detailed as to discourage innovation. He uses hand tools almost exclusively, so don't expect directions on using a table saw or drill press. The author has included chapters on making shaving horses, milking stools, tables, brooms, hay rakes, wooden spoons and harrows, and his wife has added chapters on basketry and other crafts. Pictures and illustrations are in black-and-white, but they are well-placed and nicely illustrate the components of the project, as well as the finished item. I highly recommend this work to anyone interested in making wooden items with hand tools.

An interesting how to on the use of old time hand tools and the projects they were used for. A wonderful look at how some of the old wooden articals were made by hand and the proper use of the hand tools to construct them.

This book is great. It reminds me of the proper ways to sharpen my tools and gives me detailed instructions on how to do projects I've wanted to do. What more could I ask for.

Very good publication. Much better than the Roy Underhill book with more detail and much better pictures regarding the construction of various projects.
