Mouldings in Practice
After years of publishing woodworking information, you often hear that there is nothing new in the craft. Everything has been done before, written up, and/or fully figured out.
“Mouldings in Practice” by Matthew Sheldon Pickford will debunk this myth. This book explains how to make mouldings in a simple way that you have probably never heard about or learned. Pickford turns a set of complicated mouldings into a series of predictable rabbets and chamfers that guide your hollow and round planes to make anything – anything – that has been made in the past or that you can envision for your future projects.
“Mouldings in Practice” is accessible for even the beginning hand-tool woodworker. It uses more than 200 color illustrations and dozens of photos to explain how to lay out, prepare for and cut any moulding you can draw.
The book has a full index by Suzanne Ellison (the saucy indexer for “The Anarchist’s Tool Chest”), plus appendices on fixing up old moulding planes, building a sticking board and how to capture moulding profiles in the wild.
Like all Lost Art Press books, “Mouldings in Practice” has been produced entirely in the United States. It has color illustrations with black-and-white photos, and it is printed on #60 white uncoated and acid-free paper. The pages are sewn to last a long time. And the book is hardbound and covered with cotton.
