Each title covers a single tool in depth, with photos and exploded views, instructions, charts, and sidebars.

That’s no surprise: it covers a wide variety of tasks with great precision. Peters helps woodworkers identify which saws and accessories best fit their needs; teaches basic and advanced techniques; and shows how to make jigs and fixtures that expand the tool’s capabilities.
