 1.  The Tools that Built America
Alex W. Bealer
224 pages, 6 x 9, paperback, Dover Publications
Great appeal for woodworkers at all levels of expertise
Over 200 drawings and photographs of early hand tools
Must reading for lovers of antique tools and enthusiasts of Americana
This is the fascinating story of early American woodworking, as told by a master craftsman. Author Alex Bealer enthusiastically describes and clearly illustrates a wide array of implements used by frontiersmen, among them various kinds of axes, saws, planes, hammers, and the adze. Such delicate tools as calipers, bevels, and lathes employed by the cabinetmaker and furnituremaker are characterized and portrayed as well. All are shown as they were actually used in colonial times and as they are still employed by many woodworkers.
Unabridged republication of the work originally published by Barre Publishing, Barre, Massachusetts, 1976.
