Available from Classic Hand Tools is this wonderful set from master woodworker, Paul Sellers. Paul has created a comprehensive course in woodworking, with a full seven-series set of highly interactive DVDs and accompanying 320-page book. Lifelong woodworker Paul Sellers raised the bar with an award-winning team of filmmakers to introduce a whole new apprenticing strategy for training woodworkers of every skill level.

Paul teaches you the application of his three woodworking fundamentals: Sharpness, Accuracy and Technique. This series of structured and integrated training courses will enable woodworkers of all ability levels to easily master Paul Sellers' essential skills that can be used for a lifetime of woodworking projects.

Paul details the essential properties of wood, wood-shaping, joinery and project development, and applies these fundamentals to further core woodworking concepts through a series of completed projects. The book combines two series' worth of information to fully compliment the seven-DVD video series with additional diagrams and details.

In his book, Paul begins by detailing the elemental properties of the wood itself and then teaches you how to shape and shave wood, create strong joints, lay out complex projects and then apply these concepts to a wide range of woodworking projects. He discusses which hand tools are important and trains you to establish the same sharpening techniques he's used for almost five decades.

This beautiful 320-page, full-colour volume combines two series' worth of information to fully compliment the DVD series with additional diagrams and details.
