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.
