Manufacturers and Suppliers
Intro As one of the first research steps for this book, I contacted a long list of hardware manufacturers and suppliers and requested catalogs. As the catalogs arrived and filled one shelf after another in my office, I began to wonder how to compress all of that information into a single book.
It was immediately apparent that a single volume on the topic of hardware could not pretend to be absolutely comprehensive in scope -- showing every piece of hardware available on the planet -- and also utterly exhaustive in depthdemonstrating how to install each example.
Fortunately, the Complete Illustrated Guide format helped achieve a balance, delivering useful information in a concise manner that you can immediately put to practical use. In the overview portion of each section, youll get a panoramic view of your choices in that hardware category, as well as tips on the key quality points to seek when youre choosing hardware. In the photo essays, youll discover how to successfully handle even complicated installations step by easy step. Whenever possible, Ive included insights as to why youre following a certain procedure so that you can apply the knowledge you gain to other projects.
Combining these two approaches gives you knowledge that is both extensive in range and intensive in application. As a result, youll be better prepared and more confident in your approach to woodworking. Youll be able to maximize your time in the shop, building projects that are sturdier, better looking, and more functional. If youre an amateur, it can mean moving your abilities, work, and satisfaction to the next level.
