From the cover: “Nearly all woodwork consists of joining pieces of wood together and the success of the work depends largely upon the skill with which this is done. Over many years large numbers of joints have been evolved to suit the various jobs for which they are required. In some, strength is of first importance, others require a neat appearance, another group have to withstand severe climatic conditions, others call for strength to resist stresses in a certain direction, and so on. In this book are given the joints most commonly found in woodwork, and, in addition to describing their application, full instructions on the method of cutting them are given. It is written and illustrated by a man of wide experience in woodwork who explains step by step every stage from the preliminary marking out to the final fitting. Men in the various woodworking trades, home craftsmen, handicraft masters, and students will find the book of great value.”
