Regardless of your level of woodworking, the shaper can increase the quality and efficiency of your work, and it can broaden the scope of your woodworking. More than just a primer on shaper techniques, this book gives shop-proven examples of how the shaper can be put to use. With an emphasis on safety, this book is a step-by-step guide that will teach you all about the shaper: from basic setups to cutting curved molding profiles to designing shaper jigs that will expand your woodworking potential.
