Anyone who knows the name “Krenov”, knows that his books on cabinetmaking are not only valuable for woodworking as an activity, but valuable as an insight not only into his world, but also a study in a relationship with wood & the process of creating.
As many of you know, he passed away last September at age 88. It was a sad event for those who know of him. I had a phone conversation with him (as it turned out) not long before he died. It was one of those things you always remember. (see my earlier blog describing it, if you’re interested)
I read his 3 main books that were published in the late 70’s awhile back and they had been packed away, but the conversation with him led me to search them out to re-read, & to my dismay, could only find one. I bought a copy of the others, and, wouldn’t you know it, when I was cleaning out my basement last week, I located the original books.
As a result, I have an extra copy of “The Fine Art of Cabinetmaking”, hardbound, publish date 1977, and a soft bound (all I could find) copy of “The Impractical Cabinetmaker”, re-published in 1999 (the ones I recently bought) available if anyone’s interested. I paid $18 for the hardbound and $8 for the soft, plus some shipping.
I don’t really want to screw around on Ebay, so if anyone’s interested you can PM me. I checked Amazon & the soft cover is now more, and the hardbound is not available at all.
