If you go to the Amazon page where this is sold and read the customer reviews, you will see this book described as ‘tool porn’. That’s because the purpose of this book is to showcase beautiful tools with superb photography, and it certainly does that. Sandor went to great lengths to locate and photograph all the most exceptional tools he could. Being a former editor of Fine Woodworking, he has the connections to locate such tools.
You won’t find much information here on using or making tools, but you will find a lot of inspiration from a time when craftsmen cared enough about their tools to lavish them with art as well as craft.
This is the ultimate woodworking coffee table book- it will even amaze your friends who are not woodworkers.
