Woodworking for Beginners Handbook
Woodworking for Beginners Handbook
The Step-by-Step Guide with Tools, Techniques, Tips and Starter Projects
About the Book
Once an experienced woodworker said to me, "There is no scrap wood, just pieces which have not met the right hand".
Back in the days when I was starting with Wood Craft, I was desperately looking for the go-to guide about the processes and the tools involved.
Woodworking is a vast subject with many branches or sub-genres of this craft like Cabinet Making, Wood Carving, Joinery, Carpentry, and Woodturning.
The online content was information-overloaded and not presented in a sequential manner. The books I referred to were either focused on a few processes or assumed that I had the necessary information. Also, I found that most of the books were a little aged.
There are two ways of learning; one is learning from subject matter experts who have years of experience, and then there are people who are just a few steps ahead of you in their journey.
I am the second one, five years into this hobby, and still learning from the experts.
I still remember the initial doubts I had and the tips which helped me.
This book is for people who are in their first lap (0-3 years) of the wood-crafting journey and want to have a holistic idea of processes and tools and need help in their initial projects.
I have included ample photographs of realistic projects of beginners explaining the process and standard operating procedure while starting.
In the last chapter, Appendix: I have provided a glossary of woodworking terms, and a list of online resources available for free patterns, tips, and techniques.
Below is the flow of the information provided in the book:
- Introduction: The history and details of various branches of woodworking
- All about the wood: How to choose them; Hardwood, Softwood, Plywood, MDF all explained
- Woodworking tools: Hand and Power tools explained with best practices
- Processes and Techniques: The complete workflow of the woodworking process along with a detailed explanation of the usage of each tool
- Safety and Best Practices: This topic is highlighted throughout the book, and best practices with regard to hand and power tools explained in detail
- Gluing and Finishing
- 10 starter projects with step-by-step instructions
- Glossary of woodworking tools, souces for downloading the free plan
- Also, you can download my additional bonus booklet with additional plans for more projects
