Less cost! More features! Bragging rights! Let's face it: Woodworking isn't cheap. Wood and materials alone can cost a small fortune.

Do what Stumpy Nubs does and build your own! In The Homemade Woodshop, James Hamilton, creator of the popular Stumpy Nubs website, shows you how to build woodworking machines for a fraction of the cost of store-bought models--and with more features to boot! You'll discover 12 detailed projects for building precise, durable shop-made machines including: Sliding-top router table that makes joinery safe and easy Multi-function downdraft table that combines dust collection with countless workholding applications Sliding crosscut table that gives your table saw the precision and convenience of a high-end European saw 24" band saw that offers all of the throat capacity of an industrial model in a size that will fit on a benchtop Crosscut "super-sled" that allows you to create box joints, splined miters, tenons and more Table saw workstation that affords you a complete workshop in a 4' x 8' footprint And 7 more! The projects in this book not only save you money, but they allow you to add more features and, ultimately, greater precision and more versatility to the machines in your shop. And let's face it: Having a shop outfitted with machines that you built yourself is just cool.

When traditional woodworkers wanted to improve the speed, accuracy and repeatability of their work, they developed clever jigs and fixtures such as shooting boards, a flexible straight edge and a grasshopper gauge. But the vast majority of these devices disappeared when power tool woodworking took over in the 20th century. Jigs & Fixtures for the Hand Tool Woodworker changes all that. It reintroduces traditional user-made devices, and expands upon those with more recent adaptations, and even some manufactured items. Most of the user-made jigs are simple to construct and use and once you've tried them in your workshop you'll quickly see they will make all the difference between frustration and success in your woodworking.

Learn the art of box making from one of the foremost experts of the craft. Through Doug Stowe's decades of experience, you'll learn the basic techniques to get started, as well as more advanced ways to approach and create finely crafted boxes. Project after project, your skills will build, and you'll come to refine your work, asking how processes could be simplified and how can finishes be improved. Throughout the book, Stowe offers this advice: Repeat yourself. Repetition leads to refinement and refinement leads to success. Though it's not necessary to build the projects in this book in any particular order, they are arranged by the level of difficulty. As you grow in confidence working through the projects in this book, use your imagination and ask a few questions: What if this box were made in that wood? What if that joint were used on this box? What if the lid had more overhang? What if I made it larger, or smaller? The question What if? will challenge and engage you as a box maker for years of adventure.
