Improve Your Hand Tool Woodworking with Traditional Jigs!
When traditional woodworkers wanted to improve the speed, accuracy and repeatability of their work, they developed clever jigs and fixtures such as shooting boards, a flexible straight edge and a grasshopper gauge. The vast majority of those aids were user-made and disappeared from sight when power tool woodworking took over in the 20th century. Woodworkers today often experience unnecessary frustration because they don't know that simple shop-made aids can vastly improve their work. Jigs & Fixtures for the Hand Tool Woodworker changes all of that.
In this new hand tool guide, you'll learn:
- How to construct and use simple handmade jigs
- What traditional jigs look like and how they're used
- Graham Blackburn's secret family jigs and his recent adaptations including some manufactured items
- And much more!
Once you've tried these jigs in your shop, you'll quickly see they will make all the difference between frustration and success in your woodworking.
