Book Shelf – Portable Bookshelf – for Tabletop Wood Magazine – May 2003 – for Plans I used a Sliding Dovetail to attach the shelf to the Ends instead of what the plans called for. I found a Bed Headboard on the street on Trash day… was solid wood! That’s what I used. I could have / should have sanded the wood a little more, but I thought it would some character to it the way I did. A little wood burning was done for a Unicorn on each End. ...
OK, I need some suggestions. I have surgery coming up that will require a long period of rehab…and an opportunity to do a lot of good reading. Here’s the question: What is the most helpful and interesting book on woodworking that you have ever read? Just post your answer…and if you are inclined, a brief note as to why this is book is your choice. THANKS!

Back when I joined Lumberjocks a little over five years ago there were only about 4,500 woodworkers now there are over 77 thousand which is pretty impressive to see so man...
This book is a great book. It is almost like a dictionary for handtools. The pictures are very detailed. You can look up almost any handtools and figure information out from how to use it to how to care for the tool. If you are just getting into hand tools I recommend getting a reference book.

In Feburary 2011, I broke my right leg and ended up having to deal with an extend stay in the hospital and time away from work.

Many of these come from Google Books. You can read these books on-line using your web browser and down load them to your computer and save them there if you like. If yo...
