About the Book

'Machine Woodworking' provides students with all the basic information needed to reach NVQ level II in wood machining. It covers calculations, timber science, and all the relevant machines, and is completed by five simple workshop projects which can be used to practice and test the necessary skills. The use of each machine is explained, with ample diagrams and photographs where appropriate, and each section is rounded off with the relevant regulations and additional multiple-choice questions to test understanding.


"I strongly recommend this book to all users of woodcutting machinery. It is informative, well presented, easy to read and understand and has excellent illustrations and photographs… well written and a valuable reference text." Institute of Carpenters Journal
