This edition is the first English-language translation of the most important woodworking book of the 18th century.

"To Make as Perfectly as Possible" by Donald C. Williams, Michele Pietryka-Pagán & Philippe Lafargue covers a wide range of topics of interest to woodworkers especially hand-tool woodworking and history.

In addition to veneer and marquetry, this volume contains sections on grinding, sharpening, staining, finishing, wood selection, a German workbench, clock-case construction, engraving and casting brasses.

Most of all, this book provides a window into the woodworking world of the 18th century, a world that is both strangely familiar and foreign.
