Power tools make many tasks in woodworking, carpentry and home improvements faster and more efficient, but choosing the right tool for the job and using it properly can mean the difference between great results and disaster. These articles, collected from Fine Woodworking, along with original content provided by editor, Paul Anthony, cover all the power tools used in a modern woodworking shop.
These tools also are used widely in general carpentry and home improvement and so apply to those activities as well as woodworking. Coverage includes how to choose tools based on features and value and techniques from basic to advanced. A special feature of this book is the attention to portable power tools, a topic not usually covered in depth in woodworking books and seldom in other books on tools.
