Practical Shop Math
Add Some Math Savvy to Your Toolbox…
Woodworking and math are as closely connected as a tight-fitting dovetail. There’s no getting around it—start a woodworking project and the numbers begin flying around like sawdust. From calculating lumber to mixing finishes and all the formulas, fractions, decimals, and geometry in between, workshop math can be tricky stuff, especially if it has been many years since math class. But none of that matters, because Practical Shop Math has you covered. Packed with simple solutions, helpful illustrations, handy formulas, and more, Practical Shop Math is the perfect book for anyone looking to improve their math skills. Once equipped with the tool of understanding some math basics, a day in the workshop will involve more fun and production and less head-scratching.
