With the CD "Woodworking's Critical Path: The Complete Curriculum," you get a compilation of everything master woodworker Ian Kirby has taught on the subject of woodworking. Containing over 70 lessons and over a dozen projects, the CD covers everything from selecting and preparing stock; to marking joints, plus cutting them; glue-up; final assembly and finish. You'll find out how to calculate how many board feet you need for a project, how to easily read plan drawings,and how to use mock-ups for projects you design. Complete plans are included for a Mackintosh Style Chair, an Arts & Crafts Workbench, a Frame and Panel Chest, and more. As you follow the Critical Path Ian Kirby has identified as the step-by-step way to learning woodworking, you'll gain understanding of your tools, whether it's a hand plane, table saw or router, and your materials, from solid wood (plainsawn, quartersawn and more) to manufactured materials. Kirby, trained in the British Arts & Crafts tradition, also provides you with a history of this movement, plus the details of making dovetails, and instructions for frame and panels, drawers, doors and torsion boxes.
