Complete Illustrated Guide to Shaping Wood Paperback / softback


These Taunton's bestselling Complete Illustrated Guides series are now available in paperback.

Over 800 colour photographs and easy-to-follow steps make this suitable for woodworkers of all levels.

It comes from highly regarded custom-furniture maker and master teacher Lonnie Bird.

Shape is critical to the ultimate success or failure of a piece of furniture.

Knowing this, custom-furniture maker Lonnie Bird has taken the complex subject of shaping and in this book made it accessible to every woodworker.

He guides the reader towards first visualising, then drawing a shape, and then choosing the appropriate tool for creating it.

Shaping techniques of all kinds are covered here, from the simplest ones to more complex bending and carving.

Highly illustrated with drawings and photos, this book offers something for every woodworker.
