Overview

"It is our intention to notice many things, however trivial, that may in any way serve to enlighten our readers respecting the joiner's art." T. Thorold.

Temple Thorold wrote for George Routledge & Sons in the mid 1800's. OUR WORKSHOP, 1866, is the only known book by Thorold. In addition to OUR WORKSHOP, Thorold authored articles on woodworking and similar crafts in Routledge's EVERY BOY'S ANNUAL, an annual book of articles of interest to the young men of the mid 19th Century.

OUR WORKSHOP explores carpentry and joinery as it was practiced in the early 1800's. Discussed in detail, complete with representative engravings of hand tools and hand woodworking techniques, are the following topics: The Bench; How to Use the Tools; Remarks on the Seasoning and Choice of the Woods; Various Methods of Joining Timbers; Simple Works in Wood; Grooving Planes, etc.; Mortising and Tenoning; Dovetailing; Veneering; Varnishing and French Polishing.

OUR WORKSHOP is as relevant to the pursuit of skilled crafts today as it was in 1866.
