It happens all the time: woodworkers proudly survey their handiwork only to discover gaps in the glue joints and between parts. The solution? This comprehensive guide. It delves into every aspect of each tool--basic anatomy, features, motor sizes, dust ports, maximum cut, and more. Check out bench-top, stationary, and portable models of each; accessories, such as push sticks and knife-sharpening jigs; and all the must-know techniques, including face and edge jointing and staggered cut planing. There are advanced procedures, too--from rabetting and tapering a post to ganged cuts and molding--as well as fixtures to make, maintenance and repair advice, and exciting projects.
