Blending Power and Hand Tools for Quick, Quality FurnitureBook - 2013
Combines the use of power tools and hand tools in woodworking to create furniture.
A faster route to handcrafted results!
In the last few years, there's been a push to return to the roots of woodworking when every step was done with hand tools--from resawing lumber and planing it flat, to cutting joins and creating profiles. Working this way can produce beautiful results, but is it the best method for woodworking in the 21st century?
In Hybrid Woodworking, author and Internet woodworking star Marc Spagnuolo offers a more efficient approach that combines the strength of power-tool and hand-tool techniques. The end result: You save time and effort while producing furniture that still has that stunning handmade look.

And best of all, it will demonstrate techniques for working flawlessly and efficiently with every machine and tool in your shop.
