The Art of Woodworking: Master Woodworker - Free PDF

In an era of kiln-dried lumber and power tools, working freshly cut wood seems more than a little whimsical -a throwback to a bygone era when itinerant wood carvers, turners, and chair makers would travel from town to town, sizing up the trees and the local demand for hayforks, barrels, bowls, chairs, shingles, and baskets. In England in the late 19th Century, craftsmen known as chair bodgers would set up shop just outside town. The surrounding trees provided the bodger with all the raw materials for his mill, shop, and home. Starting with a minimal tool kit, he could fashion many of the other tools necessary to fell, split, and shape local trees.
