by Jim Tolpin and George Walker Illustrated by Andrea Love
In From Truths to Tools, authors Jim Tolpin and George Walker continue the explorations of By Hand & Eye and By Hound & Eye of “artisan’s design language,” which they see as a timeless design approach with practical applications for the modern woodworker. From Truth to Tools is cheerfully illustrated by Andrea Love and looks a bit like a children’s book. It’s meant to be accessible - the better to convey its ideas: "Once you understand the language behind your tools, very complicated things become easy to understand. Compound joinery. Fitting odd miters. Making curves that taper. And once you get those ideas in your head, it’s a short hop to how those same ideas can be applied to building anything of any shape imaginable ?“ skyscrapers, boats, bridges.”
