Here's the best, most beautifully illustrated guide for learning a wonderful variety of woodworking techniques and achieving high-quality results. From corner banding and stringing to irregular shapes, circular motifs, rosettes, and purfling, all the processes are broken down and shown in crisp photos, accompanied by easy-to-follow instructions. Best of all, even the beginner can succeed in doing excellent work by following the directions for using either hand or machine tools.
