What I think is brilliant about the book (and I hope to steal for my own future efforts) is how Hayward first teaches you the basic strokes: sawing, chiseling, boring, planing, marking, testing. Chris is a contributing editor to Popular Woodworking Magazine and the publisher at Lost Art Press. Hayward – a self-employed cabinetmaker in London, England, for 12 years, 1913-25, becomes editor of Handicrafts, London, 1925-35, later Woodworker, London, editor, 1935-68. Some of you may have heard of Charles Hayward, who is often touted as the best mid-20th century author of woodworking books ever and a must read.
Fairham's books are important in that he was trained in the late 19th Century, taught Manual Arts in British schools and as such, brought with him the skills and traditions of that era. I swear I don’t have a secret stash of these books I like, though it would be a nifty way to make some cash on the side. Hayward covers it all, from basic sharpening to flattening a board, mortising, basic dovetailing, half-laps and even case construction.


Hayward shows you how to build swanky item after swanky item for your pad, including a television chair and some Danish un-modern tables. Hayward was born April 26, 1898, in London, the son of a woodworker, educated in London, Hayward serves in World War I for two years, 1916-18.
Hayward are still today the definitive traditional reference source for English woodworking. His books are clear, concise and devoid of the often overly complicated mythology that crept in during the later 20th Century. The book is entirely focused on hand work because it is assumed that the home carpenter wouldn’t have any machines lurking in the scullery.
The Complete Book of Woodwork is a standard work for anyone who wishes to learn about the craft to an advanced level.
Hayward, to his credit, edited the Fairham books with the intent of appealing to the post WWII audience but in doing so, frequently added layers of complexity to what is a straightforward topic: the use of hand tools in woodworking.


I have a strong suspicion that, with the advent of the pre and post WWII tehnological age, there was an assumption on the part of the publishers that what was needed where books that introduced readers to the Mysteries of Craft, without which books the aspiring worker would forever be at a disadvantage. If you want to read and learn about hand tool methods from a craftsman who was trained during the era when these methods were common knowledge, than I recommend the early Evans Bros books of The Woodworker Series. Brough, I realized that the more well known books of Charles Hayward did the current generation of hand tool workers a disservice by updating what were already excellent treatises on woodworking.
