The following is excerpted from “Grandpa’s Workshop,” by Maurice Pommier. This 48-page book was translated by Brian Anderson, an American-born writer and woodworker who lives and works in France. It is ostensibly a book for children, though the stories, lessons and drawing style will appeal to anyone who has an appreciation for the natural and the fantastical.

bisaiguë comes from bis=2 (Latin prefix) and “aigu” which means sharp.
So, when will you finish the story now that I’m hooked?
So, when can we expect the Pepere tool chest book from Schwarz – now that I’m hooked, and want to build one.
Hmm. Using anthropomorphic projection based on the graphic, the chest is about a third shorter than the ATC. The other dimensions appear to be the same. 🙂
My daughter liked looking at the pictures when she was young. Didn’t help as she hates woodworking and the manual arts in general. Still love the daughter and the book.
This book is fantastic! I highly recommend it.
I love this book! It has an honored place on my bookcase.
