Boat Joinery and Cabinet Making Simplified

FEATURED Boat Joinery and Cabinet Making Simplified

Drawing upon his more than 60 years’ experience as a boatbuilder/designer, Fred Bingham has revamped his classicPractical Yacht Joinery” to appeal to a whole new generation of boaters. This new edition of the book “Yachting”, called “an absolute necessity”, not only is more attuned to the needs of boaters of the 1990s – and includes all-new material on building nautically influenced projects for home or camp – its price is substantially less than that of its august predecessor. This book is about building things of wood, from a new cup rack to a completely new interior, but it isn’t just another project book.Bingham wisely assumes that many people want to be told how to perform neat joinerwork rather than what to build. By starting with a simple task, such as a cleat, deck box, or even a tool box, and then proceeding to more ambitious projects, you develop the skills you need to build practically anything you can envision. Bingham’s joinery techniques and handy gimmicks (and they appear on nearly every page of the book) were born of trial and error; he provides realistic alternative procedures for many of the projects, telling how to make them by Method A, Method B, and Method C. As thousands of readers of “Practical Yacht Joinery” discovered, Bingham’s gift for providing simple explanations for complex problems can transform a rank beginner who has never held a hammer into a journeyman boat carpenter, and a journeyman carpenter into a true craftsman.’The woodworking is discussed in such detail that just about anyone, including longtime professionals, is likely to find many useful tricks of the trade. Much more of this and pros will be a dime a dozen’ – “The Last Whole Earth Catalog”. ‘One almost has the feeling that the author is right there, advising and encouraging, showing how to use a tool, helping lay out deck beams, pausing to tell how he did a job on such and such a boat’ – “Small Boat Journal”. ‘A veritable encyclopedia of techniques, tools, gadgets, and gimmicks’ – “Dolphin Book Club News”. ‘Takes over where boatbuilding books leave off’ – “National Fisherman”. ‘Should interest everyone from the casual weekend tinkerer to the sailor who’s building his own boat’ – ‘Yachting’.

    After reading this book, I was disappointed in the respect that half of the content was a shop tool handbook more so than a boat joinery manual. Yes, the ideas and suggestions were valuble, but you should already know this going into boat construction.
    A few of his suggestions pertaining to using an inverted circular saw as a “make-do” table saw is down-right dangerous at best. (page 38)
    His chapter on “Woodworking Projects for the Home” was a nice addition, but I’m trying to figure out what it’s doing in a boat joinery book?
    In the end, I’m glad I purchased the book as I gleaned a few ideas from it.

    This book touches on basic woodworking joinery. Its a good reference for novices. The only short commings that i could find were that it wasnt as advanced as i thought it would be.

    Most cruisers are not shipwrights and never will be, but that doesn’t mean you can’t learn to do some easy woodworking tasks. And even if you can’t master the basic rudiments of joinery, because, like me, you have clumsy hands and the artistic ability of a one-eyed fruit fly, you can at least get an idea about how to use the basic hand and electric tools used in cabinetmaking. True, you most likely won’t be building a boat, but Mr. Bingham has simple projects in his book that even a simpleton like me can manage, plus if you have a lot of wood on your boat, or you are one of those who is forever changing and improving your floating home, than this is a handy book to have on board.
