     THE WOODWORKER   The Charles H. Hayward Years
     Selected articles from The Woodworker Magazine.  Edited by Christopher Schwarz
        As an esteemed & prolific workshop writer & editor of The Woodworker magazine (1939–
     1967), Charles H. Hayward left behind a wealth of valuable information on hand tools, joinery,
     finishing & the inner workings of a working woodshop that is difficult to find today, even with
     the Internet’s help. Fortunately, LAP spent 8 years ed-
     iting & coalescing the best articles into 4 volumes.    204750  Vol. I, The WW Tools   $46.00  $48.00

               & Workholding By Christopher Schwarz
               Workbenches with screw-driven vises are a fairly modern invention. For over 2,000 years, woodworkers
               built furniture using simple benches that relied on pegs, wedges & the human body to hold work.
                This book takes the reader from Pompeii, which has the oldest image of a Western bench,
               to a Roman fort in Germany to inspect the oldest surviving workbench & finally to his shop
               in Kentucky, where Chris recreated 3 historical workbenches & dozens of early jigs. 160 pages.
