"It is our intention to notice many things, however trivial, that may in any way serve to enlighten our readers respecting the joiner's art."
Offered now for the first time as one book, Our Workshop & The Lathe And How To Use It, published 1866 & 1867, respectively, are the only known works of Temple Thorold. Who Temple Thorold was, we do not know.
Both titles were intended as instructional texts for the student of teenage years. Our Workshop in particular is one of the earliest purely educational books on woodworking. Most craft books of the mid and early 19th century presented lessons in morality under the guise of productive activities for the young boy or girl. Written with a directness and clarity seldom found in nineteenth century craft books, Our Workshop & The Lathe And How To Use It represents an invaluable resource for the modern traditional woodworker as well as the educator.
