What are your favorite WW Books? Especially stories/philosophy---not just skills...

1737 days ago by Napaman | 15 comments »

Well I just researched via “tags” the book forums and there are a few on LJ’s…but they are mostly regarding skills books—-which makes sense for wood workers… But recently I have been dreaming of building a boat…on a 5 year plan (if you look at my projects you will see I am not ready lol)...and so I have been getting lots of books at my local library…on boat building and other titles too… But one of the books that I picked up is not a...

Woodworking Books #1: Box Making

1954 days ago by DannyBoy | 3 comments »

I recently decided to go on a box making journey in woodworking. The various skills that one can learn by making simple and small boxes and structures can lead to big improvements in skill while performing larger work later on. Plus, it’s a good way to use up scraps that are laying around the woodshop. My first step in taking on any new style or project is typically a trip to the library and sometimes a further trip to the bookstore. (I’m lucky in that my public library has an...

Free woodworking book (mission style furniture)

2037 days ago by moshel | 9 comments »

I couldn’t find any reference for this on the site, so if I am re-posting the obvious, please forgive me. Project Gutenburg has 3 very detailed books on building mission furniture. they contain detailed plans (although not as detailed as some modern books) and they have LOTS of plans in them. The construction ideas are also very enlightening and worth browsing through (for example this swing) to make a long story short: Mission FurnitureHOW TO MAKE ITby H.H. WINDSOR PART IPA...

2298 days ago by MsDebbieP | 13 comments »

April 15, 2008 In March of this year I attended a wood show in Toronto and had the privilege of not only speaking with Rob Cosman but creating a ribbon of wood. Today I had the honour of interviewing Rob and learning about his woodworking history and plans for the future. The History Rob was born and raised into the woodworking world. His father, a shop teacher at the time of Rob’s birth, became a contractor when Rob was about two years of age. Rob’s earliest memory ...

Going Pro (the information most dismiss)

2386 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 27 comments »

Inspired by Odie Odie has been sharing some incredible information with the LJ group. There is more gold in there than many may even realize. An Oblique View Here is some information that does not seem directly related to woodworking success and is often dismissed. But one must understand is that it is about business, not woodworking. So that means the principles of business, marketing, and social psychology apply. Go to the Small Business Administration. They will help you with s...

Reviews - Books #1: 7 Books on Boxes

2484 days ago by Dekker | 10 comments »

Boxes and boxmaking have always been popular subjects for many hobby woodworkers. What other project type offers such variety in technique, finish, and final application? A box project can often be completed in a weekend, and noone can ever say they have too many boxes! The first place to start when considering making wooden boxes is to get some inspiration. Since the best place to get inspiration is to see other finished boxes, I suggest you start by looking through some books on wood...

Handplane Restoration #2: Preparations for restoring a hand plane

2688 days ago by WayneC | 8 comments »

I’ve had a couple of 12-14 hour workdays this week and have not had the opportunities for restoring any planes. I decided to take a little time this evening to discuss items that will be needed for the restoration process. The basis for this list comes from the Ernie Conover Video on Reclaiming flea market planes. Hopefully, he will update this video and release on DVD. The list is as follows: Lap Plate – used to lap the sole and sides of a plane- Plastic Laminate – ...
