Some of you might know John Wilson for his Shaker oval box making classes and supplies but he also teaches tool making in The Home Shop. Making Wood Tools is his first book. In it he not only teaches you how to make wood tools, but he provides interesting background stories and histories. The book covers the making of several different planes and other tools, such as a spoke shave and travisher. It also has chapters on blade making and several on keeping tools and holding work such as a workbench, work horse for dovetailing, Japanese tool box, and a carpenter’s tote, to name a few.
