Culling its material from the pages of Fine Woodworking magazine, this book gives illustrated advice on the use of woodworking power tools. Covering safety tips, maintenance regimes, tool choices, and of course woodworking techniques, the volume's 35 papers are organized into sections on portable and benchtop machines; routers; tablesaws; drill presses and hollow-chisel mortisers; bandsaws; jointers, planers, and shapers; "working with machines" (i.e. taming noise and dust collection). The emphasis is on specific techniques and tips for moderately experienced woodworkers, so unlike other books of its type, there are no demonstrations of complete projects.
