REPRINT. pp.200. B & W illustrations. This book is intended for the home craftsman who wants to make all sorts of things in wood from a table lamp to a rabbit hutch. To the tradesman carpentry refers to the constructional woodwork of a house-the roof, flooring, and so on. To the man in the street, however, it generally means the making of almost every thing in wood; hence the general character of the designs we give. We give a range of comparatively simple designs for objects to make which we know from experience to be in everyday demand; small general items, pieces of furniture, and garden woodwork. These are followed by instructions on the use of tools, and the everyday processes involved in woodwork-making doors, hinging, fitting locks, and cutting joints.

The mindfulness of carpentry; sourcing and seasoning your timber; tongue and groove, lap and spleen; legs, aprons, stretchers and trestles; fox wedges and tenon joints: through his inimitable artistry, wit and individualism, Joel Bird passes on the skills of table making while also expressing the personal journey that accompanies the learning of these skills. Split into four parts - table beginnings, the table top, the table base and the table finishing - The Table Maker is part meditation and part guide book, and has within its pages the information needed to make a quality table of your own. 'The tables I like are quiet. They sit patiently waiting for the day's purpose to reveal itself. They offer themselves to a room, not attempting to grab attention or dominate, inconspicuous in their simplicity, saving their qualities for those who are interested. The table that I grew up with was one such example. A simple 5' x 3' pine table, four legs joined with mortise and tenon joints, a wide apron to support decent dimensions. It still sits as composed as ever in my parent's dining room. It has participated in the raising of two generations that ate and grew and learned at its surface and there is no reason why it won't participate in two more. Can an object such as this be described as having a soul?'

The second in a series of highly practical, hands-on, step-by-step photographic manuals, Upgrading Your Boat's Interior fills a gap in the market for the DIY boat builder and repairer. It is a subject covered only in piecemeal fashion by the yachting press, which, like general boat maintenance and repair manuals, can't go into the level of detail Mike Westin does. This is a visual, hand-holding guide, dwelling on the practical details of upgrading every aspect of a tired boat's interior and related systems as it explains each procedure rather than focussing on the theory (which is relegated to an appendix, for those who wish to go further). It's surprising how a few simple renovations and upgrades can transform the look and comfort of a cabin. Anyone planning to attempt these projects will find this photographic step-by-step book a hand-holding godsend.
