When English joiner, Richard Arnold, inherited his grandfather’s tool chest in the late 1970s, he found two rare booklets buried within. Originally published in 1910 and authored by an anonymous joiner, these booklets document the steps – from layout to joinery to construction – for making doors and windows by hand. Each step is accompanied by hand-drawn illustrations that clearly outline the process. Lost Art Press has scanned these door and window-making booklets and combined them into a single volume with an introduction by Richard Arnold.
