You'll discover 12 detailed projects for building precise, durable shop-made machines including: Sliding-top router table that makes joinery safe and easy Multi-function downdraft table that combines dust collection with countless workholding applications Sliding crosscut table that gives your table saw the precision and convenience of a high-end European saw 24" band saw that offers all of the throat capacity of an industrial model in a size that will fit on a benchtop Crosscut "super-sled" that allows you to create box joints, splined miters, tenons and more Table saw workstation that affords you a complete workshop in a 4' x 8' footprint And 7 more! The projects in this book not only save you money, but they allow you to add more features and, ultimately, greater precision and more versatility to the machines in your shop.

When traditional woodworkers wanted to improve the speed, accuracy and repeatability of their work, they developed clever jigs and fixtures such as shooting boards, a flexible straight edge and a grasshopper gauge. But the vast majority of these devices disappeared when power tool woodworking took over in the 20th century. Jigs & Fixtures for the Hand Tool Woodworker changes all that. It reintroduces traditional user-made devices, and expands upon those with more recent adaptations, and even some manufactured items. Most of the user-made jigs are simple to construct and use and once you've tried them in your workshop you'll quickly see they will make all the difference between frustration and success in your woodworking.
