Handplane Essentials, Revised & Expanded
Handplane Essentials, Revised & Expanded
Hardcover      ISBN: 1440349509
Everything you need to use your handplanes

No woodworking tool is more satisfying, quick and precise to use than a handplane. Planes can process timber in its rough state, bring boards up to a glimmering smoothness, cut rabbets, dados, grooves and other joints, and trim wood with a precision that has yet to be matched by power tools.

Yet many woodworkers--both beginners and professionals--are intimidated by handplanes. This book is here to set the record straight.

Handplane Essentials contains everything you need to choose the right plane for your project (and for your budget), sharpen it and use it successfully. Compiled from more than 15 years of the author's writings on the subject of handplanes in magazines, trade journals and blogs, this book is an indispensable guide for woodworkers. This revised edition includes 14 new articles as well as new and updated tool reviews.

BLACK+DECKER Wood Floors is the definitive DIYers guide to everything you need to know about installing, repairing, and maintaining wood, engineered wood, and laminate floors.

Solid wood, engineered wood, or laminate floors can enhance the beauty of any room in a home. Wood creates visual warmth, is available in a wide variety of colors and grain patterns, and is durable enough to last a half century or more when installed and maintained properly.

While home interior trends change, and some of the flooring options may come and go with them, but the popularity of wood flooring does not wane. And now, with BLACK+DECKER Wood Floors, DIYers with moderate tool skills can tackle a wood-flooring project and enjoy the cost savings that go along with their successful efforts.

This intuitive guide covers all phases of basic wood, engineered wood, and laminate flooring installation--from preliminary surveys of flooring choices, tools, and prep work through finishing and reinstalling trim. Of course, not all wood-flooring situations require removal and replacement. Amateur home remodelers will appreciate a chapter devoted to repairing and restoring existing wood flooring.
