"...to know just how to handle and manipulate the saw or the plane or the chisel to effect the desired result with a minimum of effort and without injury to either tool or material - that is knowledge worth having..."
Woodwork Tools And How To Use Them was published c1922 as part of The Woodworker Series, by Evans Bros., London. Authored by William Fairham, a well-respected practicing woodworker and technical school instructor. Woodwork Tools And How To Use Them introduces both the basics of hand tool use as well as advanced techniques. Intended for Manual Arts classes, Woodwork Tools presents the practical skills needed by woodworkers of any skill levels.
Mid 20th century, The Woodworker Series was reissued by Evans Bros. with Charles Hayward as the listed author. When you compare the books of the same titles by Fairham and Hayward, it's clear that Hayward added material relevant to mid century woodworkers while leaving the original content largely untouched. I prefer the William Fairham editions as they are first hand knowledge from a craftsman who was trained at the turn of the 19th to 20th centuries.
Gary Roberts, publisher of the Toolemera Press imprint, preserves history through returning to print classic books on early crafts, trades and industries. All titles are produced from the originals in his personal collection.
