Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
The Complete Illustrated Guide to Joinery describes how to make every practical woodworking joint in a series full-colour step-by-step photographic tutorials. The real value of this book is its coverage of the many ways to get the same result. For example, there are eleven methods for cutting a simple mortise described here. This gives woodworkers the option of choosing the option that best fits their tooling and skill level. The book is organized for quick access, using visual maps, and detailed visual contents. Since nomenclature varies, the visual reference allows rapid identification of the desired result. And like a classic cookbook, this book gives all the standard methods and variations, but is especially useful for guidance on a seldom used, but necessary techniques. Fully illustrated: graphic step-by-step illustrated presentation of key techniques and methods - visual maps, cross references and indexes make information easy to find and understand. In full colour: over 1,700 full colour photographs and line drawings. Essential Text: a single-volume encyclopedia of woodworking joints that every woodworker and every student will want to refer to.

If the military wrote a field manual for joinery, this would be the equivalent of SERE school.
Everything is explained in epiphany- yielding precision. Exercises and practice are encouraged throughout the book, too!
Taunton never fails to deliver.
Beginners? Have you been looking for a manual that doesn't leave the key details out (you know, the kind that seem to withhold key information for some pretentious reason)- this manual is going to inspire and educate you.
Pictures are clear, descriptions are thorough with plenty of footnotes and internal references. The language is concise and only relevant to the subject.
Advanced cats? Wanna get to the bones of the sketches in "the soul of a tree" ???
Here is your launch pad.
Content is comprehensive. Some comments about "missing information" from other reviews makes me think they hadn't read the whole book. Most joins are covered at least twice. Once generally, to explain why you'd want to the method and what to expect, concerns and cautions, etc. The join will then be covered a second time, and in greater detail showing the steps and highlighting the things you need to watch. Excellent color images everywhere. While this doesn't show every last step in the process, it shows just enough to help anyone with even a little exposure to the basic tools... saw, chisel, etc.
In terms of the book, itself, the quality of materials, binding, printing... everything is top notch. Very heavy for it's size, too. You could have this as a coffee-table book if you wanted. Short of being leather bound, I don't know what they could do to improve appearance and construction.
I now have three favorite woodworking books, this one for joints, one on tools, and one on the wood itself.
That said, it's limited in how much detail it can cover for each type of joinery. In just a page or two for most types, it's not really possible to address the pros and cons of each type (esp which types are good in different situations), without making the book way too long.
I've seen magazines that do stress testing on multiple types of joints to see which is the strongest and which are the most attractive, etc, and it would have been nice to see this book put a little more effort into mentioning things like when you're making bookshelves, you might consider this type of joint or that type of joint and try to avoid such-and-such a joint. Also, just because it had so much ground to cover, the book doesn't do a step by step. I guess that's understandable though, given all the types out there. I guess you'd need a whole 5 volume set to cover it much better.
