The Woodworker: The Charles H. Hayward Years - Vol. IV

The Woodworker: The Charles H. Hayward Years – seeks to reprint a small but valuable portion of the writings published by Charles H. Hayward in The Woodworker during his time as editor in chief. A finely trained cabinetmaker and extraordinary illustrator, Hayward is widely considered to be the most important workshop writer of the 20th Century.

In this fourth volume, readers will be treated to articles covering a broad range of topics, including but certainly not limited to: Selection and fabrication of a quality workbench & tool cabinet, notes on creating accessories best suited to your work, an examination of classic furniture stylistic details, and an entire section dedicated to selection and preparation of fittings.

The text is broken up into three specific topics, the first two being divided further into specifics:

- Section 1: The Workshop

  • Workbenches & Work Holding
  • Tool Chests & Storage
  • Appliances

- Section 2: Furniture & Details

  • Styles
  • Projects & Drawings
  • Miscellaneous Details

- Section 3: Odds & Sods
