Exploring Traditional Woodcraft

By Roy Underhill

Format: Paperback

SKU# U1990


Roy Underhill brings the present and the past together, one woodworking project after another. Roy’s approach to traditional woodworking is far more than a courtesy nod to the “old ways;” it is based and built on the “old ways” of woodworking. In The Woodright’s Companion you’ll find Roy’s unmatched wit and wisdom at work as he covers the following aspects of woodworking:

  • Helves and handles
  • Saws
  • Searching for whetstone quarry
  • Crow chasers and turkey calls
  • Whimmy diddles
  • Snaplines and marking gauges
  • Candle stands
  • Planes
  • Window sash
  • Riven shingles
  • Plus, Roy provides you with an exciting glimpse into the world of Colonial Williamsburg housewrights, where traditional woodworking techniques are used every day.
