David Russell, a retired builder with a passion for woodcarving and antique tools, built up the collection catalogued in this book. Described as a ‘bible in its field’, it depicts over 1,500 tools including race knives, badger planes, bow drills and gimlets, with descriptive details and information on makers’ marks. The introductory essays tell the story of the collection and provide a brief history of woodworking tools from the Stone Age onwards.
