Summary

Once an experienced woodworker said to me, "There is no scrap wood, just pieces which have not met the right hand".
 
Back in the days when I was starting with Wood Craft, I was desperately looking for the go-to guide about the processes and the tools involved.
 
Woodworking is a vast subject with many branches or sub-genres of this craft like Cabinet Making, Wood Carving, Joinery, Carpentry, and Woodturning.
 
The online content was information overload and not presented in a sequential manner. The books I referred were either focused on a few processes or assumed that I had the necessary information. Also, I found that most of the books were a little aged.
 
There are two ways of learning; one is learning from subject matter experts who have years of experience, and then there are people who are just a few steps ahead of you in their journey.
 
I am the second one, five years into this hobby, and still learning from the experts.
 
I still remember the initial doubts I had and the tips which helped me.
 
This book is for people who are in their first lap (0-3 years) of the wood-crafting journey and want to have a holistic idea of processes, tools, and need help in their initial projects.
 
I have included ample photographs of realistic projects of beginners explaining the process and standard operating procedure while starting.
 
In the last chapter, Appendix: I have provided a glossary of woodworking terms, the list of online resources available for free patterns, tips, and techniques.
 
Below is the flow of the information provided in the book:
 
Introduction: The history and details of various branches of woodworking
 
All about the wood: How to choose them; Hardwood, Softwood, Plywood, MDF all explained
 
Woodworking tools: Hand and Power tool explained with best practices
 
Processes and Techniques: The complete workflow of the woodworking process along with a detailed explanation of the usage of each tool
 
Safety and Best Practices: This topic is highlighted throughout the book, and best practices with   regards to hand and power tools explained in detail
 
Gluing and Finishing
 
10 starter projects with step by step instructions
 
Glossary of woodworking tools, souces for downloading the free plan
 
Also, you can download my additional   bonus booklet with additional plans for more projects
 
So, what are you waiting for? As said  in the woodworking community:
 
Measure Twice and Cut Once and let's start the journey.

    Unstoppable and lethal, they move across the battlefields like ghosts. They are the soldiers of the Legio Occulta. 
     
    Nola, Roman Italy, 19 August 14 A.D. 
     
    History does not acknowledge them, but the Roman Empire knows the debt they owe to this secret legion. Trained not to fight but to read and interpret the messages of the gods, they pave the way for Roman swords, intervening when earthly weapons must give way to the power of the transcendent. With the Legio Occulta, no battle is impossible. 
     
    Clad in snow-white armour and tunics as black as night, they are seers, fortune-tellers, necromancers and haruspies selected when they were children from arenas, slave markets and burning villages. Led by a general who speaks only in sign language, their motto is Vigiles in tenebris: watchers of the night. 
     
    Iron blades clash with magic. Rome will never be the same.
