Dear Customer:
I hope that you’ll enjoy this latest catalog from Fox Chapel Publishing. It’s focused entirely on woodworking books—from woodcarving, whittling, scroll sawing, and turning, to pyrography, toy making, furniture making, cabinetry, and more. Please take your time to page through this catalog and check out our latest woodworking titles. You’ll find hundreds of terrific books like these, perfect for you and your customers:

Stephen and Diane Fitzberger from Abba Woodworks have written a new book that we know is going to be a top seller. In Wood Pallet DIY Projects (page 32) these experienced urban woodworkers show how to upcycle salvaged skids to create useful products for the home and community. Twenty step-by-step projects include raised garden beds, bookshelves, benches, water barrel stands, small compost bins, and more.

Author and woodworking instructor Scott Wynn is back with two essential new hand tool references. Complete Guide to Wood Joinery (page 38), a comprehensive manual on hand-cut joinery, shows how to create almost any furniture joint using hand planes, while Traditional Wooden Handplanes (page 39) shows hand tool enthusiasts how to restore, make, modify and use traditional wood handplanes.

Three of our most popular woodworking books, now in handsome new hardcover gift editions, will provide perfect presents for any woodworking enthusiast. Look for two bestselling whittling books in new gift editions—Little Book of Whittling and VictorinoxSwiss Army Knife  Book—on page 6, as well as a new gift edition of the woodburning classic Pyrography Basics on page 22. Speaking of woodburning, learning pyrography has never been easier with Landscape Pyrography Techniques & Projects (page 22) from the talented and prolific artist Lora S. Irish. Lora reveals  her easy-to-learn methods for working in layers to obtain stunning results, with four complete practice projects and a step-by-step project for a rustic Mail Pouch Tobacco-style barn.

Also new from Lora S. Irish, Finishing Techniques for Wood Crafters (page 35) offers a truly comprehensive compendium of finishing techniques for all woodcrafters. This practical guide shows how to create flawless finishes every time, with step-by-step photos of beautiful acrylic paint techniques and oil staining/antiquing methods for any creative wood project.
