About The Tool Book

If you love your tools, want to understand them, look after them, own the very best, and use them effectively, then this is the book for you. A complete visual guide featuring more than 800 images, and a foreword from Nick Offerman, The Tool Book pays homage to generations of craftsmanship, ingenuity, and know-how.

It looks at tools from every angle, so you can understand the structure and make-up of your trusted tool, and includes illustrations of tools in action. Gallery pages display different types of hammer, spade, or chisel, and there's expert advice on what to look for when choosing a tool.

Clear step-by-step photography walks you through how to use your tools like a pro, while easy-to-use charts provide tips on how best to care for them. The Tool Book explores, in loving detail, why each tool is the right tool for the job, and why it deserves pride of place in your tool shed, workshop, or studio.
