"To Make as Perfectly as Possible: Roubo on Marquetry" is the first English-language translation of the most important woodworking book of the 18th century, written by the exceptional French cabinetmaker A. J. Roubo. A team of translators, writers, woodworkers and artists worked for more than six years to bring this first volume of Roubo's work to an English-speaking audience. The book is not just about veneer and marquetry techniques, but covers a wide range of topics for woodworkers who are interested in handtool woodworking or history. The volume contains sections on sharpening, staining, finishing, wood selection, and plans for building a German workbench and constructing a clock case. But most of all, "To Make as Perfectly as Possible" provides a window into the woodworking world of the 18th century, a world that is both foreign and yet strangely familiar.
