I’m thrilled Chris has printed a new copy of Moxon. And it couldn’t have come at a better time. My old copy is in tatters. Take my advice and buy this new version asap. It won’t be available forever. And eventually or sooner, your copy will look like mine.
But this is no ordinary reprint. Chris has removed the 17th c long s which makes the text easier to read. Additonally, he’s added an analysis of each section, making the text even more relevant and more useful. Quality photos, typical of everybody’s favorite ww magazine “Woodworking”, are plentiful and helpful.
For those of you unfamiliar with Moxon, Joseph Moxon wrote the first woodworking how-to manual in the 1680’s. Don’t let the date put you off. Regardless of the sort of woodworking you do, you’ll find helpful, basic woodworking information here. It’s the stuff that should have gotten passed down and wasn’t.
Moxon is a must have/must read for every woodworker and one of the few woodworking texts that truly transcends time.
