I'm interested in getting into woodworking. I'm looking for a project book that delineates which tools/machinery are needed along with step-by-step instructions for making each project.
Anyone know of something that fits the bill?
The technique of furniture making by Ernest Joyce.
I would suggest looking at ana-white.com
A lot of books don't deliniate machinery, because a lot can be done multiple ways. eg tablesaw/bandsaw/handsaw can all cut tenons well. if you're careful, pretty much everything you do on a drill press can be done by hand (just with more inaccuracy and difficulty). Hell, there is no woodworking that was invented after the invention of electricity that can't be done entirely with hand tools.
>can't be done entirely with hand tools
Power tools help enjoy the process though.
I once built a gate to keep the dogs outside and it took me 2 hours because I was using a handsaw to cut green heart lumber. After getting a shitty ryobi 5 1/2" cordless power saw another gate for a larger door literally takes less than 30 mins. While I enjoy using a hand saw it can get tedious when making multiple cuts of the same size in a hardwood
