Handsaw Essentials by Christopher Schwarz

The book that I am most frequently asked about is the book Handsaw Essentials. It’s a book that is very difficult to get hold of and when you do the price is astronomical. In 2019 I paid just over $150 and I was pretty happy that I got a steal. Unfortunately, in my opinion the content doesn’t match the price tag. Sadly, like Handplane Essentials, the book is more a collection of good articles and does not hang together in a cohesive manner as a book. Don’t get me wrong, there is a lot of good content, but I’d expect a lot more from a book that commands such a premium. Join me on the show today as I explore this book a bit further.
