Bill Hylton's Power Tool Joinery

power tool joinery

Equipped with a router and a table saw, you can cut any furniture joint on the planet using a variety of techniques and cutters. Each chapter of this book guides you through the four critical steps to designing a great joint: designing the joint so it's strong and easy to make; choosing the right power tool and cutter so you don't stress your machines; cutting the joint with the fewest set-ups and passes; and assembling the joint so it closes tight and stays that way. Even if you've been woodworking all your life, you're going to find new ways of making joints in this book that will eliminate many fitting problems or speed you up so you're not pushing the same board across your router table 10 times.
