When it comes to essential reads in the world of woodworking, I consider “Choosing and Using Hand Tools” by Andy Rae as one of the most important.
Andy does a great job of presenting an amazing amount of information about a large number of tools both traditional and non-traditional to the woodshop.
This book isn’t just filled with a few pictures and a couple of little descriptions of each tool, but instead Andy does a great job of making sure the reader has a good understanding of the limitations and capabilities of each tool and to which family they belong.
Copies of “Choosing and Using Hand Tools” can be found at both Sterling Publishing and also at Amazon.com.
