Been covered before in the early woodworking literature Though this sounds impossible please read onLet's begin in 1839 In that year an En The Joiner and Cabinetmaker itself—that is the 19th century book—is a beautiful very readable story about the sort of work an early to mid 19th century joiner's apprentice might find himself doing and the environment in which he might be doing it The lifestyle presented is romanticised and idealised—protagonist Thomas's master and colleagues are uncommonly kind and fellow apprentice Sam is a convenient Goofus to Thomas's supremely capable Gallant—but the three projects Thomas is shown to complete are genuine and replicable by the reader It's a very practical look at pre electricity woodworking not suffering from the familiar cultish bullshit many modern hand woodworking proponents like to peddleIt's also only about a uarter of the Lost Art Press edition with the remainder being a little bit of historical context or aiming to be; a regrettable proportion of it is pseudo history and a lot of Christopher Schwarz replicating the three projects and advertising at you There's no value in any of these additions—Thomas already did a better much succinct job of anything Schwarz and Moskowitz are trying to do—and my star rating isn't about them If you can find the text of the original The Joiner and Cabinetmaker—which should be in the public domain rather than 36—just read that
