This book is intended as a definite statement of steps that may be followed by a beginner in learning the fundamental principles of woodworking. Instead of giving a general discussion of woodworking processes, the book describes and illustrates principles by means of specific examples. The experience gained in doing these problems should enable one to master a large number of others of which these stand as types.

It is believed that this method of treatment of the subject of woodworking will prove helpful in both school and home work.
