The Handyman's Book of Tools, Materials, and Processes Employed in Woodworking (Paperback)
First published in 1903, this book contains a classic guide to woodworking, being a handbook of related materials, tools, processes, and more. Written with the novice in mind, this profusely-illustrated volume contains step-by-step instructions and expert tips designed to walk the beginner through their first experiences in the workshop. Although old, this volume contains a wealth of timeless information and is highly recommended for students and apprentices. Paul Nooncree Hasluck (1854 - 1916) was an Australian engineer and editor. He was a master of technical writing and father of the 'do-it-yourself' book, producing many books on subjects including engineering, handicrafts, woodwork, and more. Other notable works by this author include: "Treatise on the Tools Employed in the Art of Turning" (1881), "The Wrath-Jobber's Handy Book" (1887), and "Screw-Threads and Methods of Producing Them" (1887). Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
