“Woodwork for Beginners” is a comprehensive guide to woodwork designed for those with little previous experience. This fantastic introduction covers all of the basic skills and techniques related to the subject, with chapters on the proper use and care of tools, types of timber, the fundamental joints, and much more. Profusely illustrated and full of expert tips, this classic handbook is not to be missed by those looking for an introduction to woodworking and related subjects. Paul Nooncree Hasluck (1854 – 1916) was an Australian engineer and editor. He was a master of technical writing and father of the ‘do-it-yourself’ book, producing many books on subjects including engineering, handicrafts, woodwork, and more. Other notable works by this author include: “Treatise on the Tools Employed in the Art of Turning” (1881), “The Wrath-Jobber’s Handy Book” (1887), and “Screw-Threads and Methods of Producing Them” (1887). Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
