Power Tools for Woodcarving Summary

Power Tools for Woodcarving by David Tippey

Woodcarving is probably the last craft where hand tools are more important than power tools--yet for some projects machines are just the right "hand tool." Use this guide to the wide range of possibilities that power tools offer you, and see how quickly they become part of your repertoire. A survey of every power tool needed in woodcarving, it includes some you might not ever consider, as well as a range of ordinary saws, sanders, and polishers, plus power chisels, files, angle grinders, die grinders, routers, chainsaws, and a variety of other portable and fixed machines. The techniques for using each tool come fully illustrated, showing how to use them on all your favorite types of woodcarving projects. 144 pages (all in color), 8 3/4 x 10 7/8.
