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!
Here is a scan of the book “Mission Furniture” by H. H. Windsor . Its got plans and illustrations for many a design. I see more than one I would like to make.

Remembering back when I joined Lumberjocks it brought out a lot of passion in me it was almost like a fever and to those that are addicted to Lumberjocks can understand what I mean about the woodworking fever. So when I say the woodworkers on this site really did inspire me to write this book it really is a true statement. 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. This is a great choice. If the video below will not play click here. for the video book review.

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. I was given an eReader as a get well gift and have been using it to kill the time. One of the things I found is that many classic woodworking books are available in electronic format for free. 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...

I am pleased to announce the availability of my new book about the work of Charles and Henry Greene.

There are numerous photos that reveal previous...
