Woodworkers Are Clever Woodworkers are often faced with challenges while building. The best woodworkers are quick to come up with one, if not a dozen solutions to these complications. No, they're not all original solutions. But the cleverest among us learn from others, and that's what this book is all about. Take advantage of years worth of collected cleverness by learning from the tips and tricks collected here: starting with basic tips on how to set up your shop, and following with wisdom on finishing, joinery, shop math, tools and more. 601 Woodshop Tips & Tricks also offers helpful hints on keeping your shop tidy and efficient, and we've even tossed in some tricks to use around the house. Remember, the smart woodworkers may not have all the answers, but they do know where to find them!

Last year my husband died - he was a builder & painter & decorator. I now realise just how much I took for granted and wished I had taken more interest in how to fix the simple things, what each tool does and how it works. However, I did find in my local library a copy of 601 Woodshop Tips & Tricks. It is perfect for what I require and now intend to sort thru 40 years of tools, keep what I think I will need and how to look after them. Plus learn how to use them and save me some money too. At 62 I think I have found a new hobby. Thanks Graham.
