Free Books: Woodworking Tools 1600-1900 and MISSION FURNTURE

12-27-2010 06:06 PM by rivergirl | 47 comments »

FREE BOOKS HERE! GET YOUR FREE BOOKS HERE! I like to read free ebooks, and came upon one “Woodworking Tools 1600-1900” that I thought some of you may enjoy looking at. It is a free book- easy to download. If you don’t use a kindle or a nook or those new fangled reading tools- just click the html option and the book will open right up. I am a total technophobe- and if I can read these ebooks anyone can – believe me. :) I hope you find this book enjoyable. Cons...

Handplane Reference #7: Electronic Books.

05-08-2011 01:05 AM by WayneC | 48 comments »

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...

Wood Art #8: Pictorial Webster's: Inspiration to Completion

04-04-2010 03:48 AM by Gary Fixler | 9 comments »

While not particularly woodworking, he uses wood in many of his jigs and clamps and presses. Too, he calls his operation “Quercus Press,” and Quercus, as we all know is the genus of the oak trees. It looks like the covers are glued over white oak boards as well. Moreover, though, this video is simply a maker’s dream. From the old linotype machine whirring and clanking away to line up type as he presses keys, to the vaults of old engravings he gained access to, to the many cl...

A New Book On Greene & Greene Furniture By David Mathias

08-29-2010 06:56 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 16 comments »

I Can Hardly Wait! A few days ago I ordered a new book titled Greene & Greene Furniture: Poems Of Wood & Light by David Mathias. I held off from ordering it because once I officially placed my order the impatience would set in. Now I am like a kid waiting for Christmas morning and I can hardly stand it. My woodworking has it’s roots in remodeling. As I did design research for my remodeling business, I became acquainted with the well-known Craftsman and Prairie style st...

Book Shelf - Portable Bookshelf - for Tabletop

12-31-2013 12:24 AM by Joe Lyddon | 18 comments »

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. ...

It's Finally Here!

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...
