"In The New Traditional Woodworker, you will learn how to set up a woodworking shop in which hand-powered tools will be your primary means for making furniture projects--just as they were for artisans up to the generation of our grandparents. Unlike working with machines, hand-tool woodworking requires far less space and expense, makes almost no dust or noise, and incurs little danger. Your woodworking shop could be a spare room in your house, and your spouse and children would be safe being with you while you work. As Jim Toplin guides you through the process of making a set of simple, yet essential, wooden layout tools and accessories for your workbench, you will learn the toolset, practice the skillset, and understand the mindset that you need to make furniture efficiently and enjoyably by hand. When you have completed these projects, you will have efficiently completed a comprehensive course in hand-tool woodworking."--P. [2] of cover

By hand & eye by George R Walker( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Instead of serving up a list of formulas with magical names (i.e. the Golden Section, the Rule of Thirds) that will transform the mundane into perfection, George R. Walker and Jim Tolpin show how much of the world is governed by simple proportions, noting how ratios such as 1:2; 3:5 and 4:5 were ubiquitous in the designs of pre-industrial artisans. And the tool that helps us explore this world, then as now, are dividers. The key to good design is to master these basic 'notes' - much like learning to sing 'do, re, mi.' How to do this is the subject of the first three-quarters of the book. It offers exercises, examples and encouragement in opening your inner eye, propping it up with toothpicks and learning the simple geometry that will help you improve your design."--Shop Woodworking website
