I have been woodworking 30 years, starting in Junior High School. I started out with powertools, primarily a Craftsmen Table Saw, followed by a Unisaw, followed by a Combination Machine.
I am now focused more on hand skills, having spent two summers at the College of the Redwoods making my own handplanes, chisels, and knives, as well as some furniture. I have also spent some time learning Japanese joinery under the able skills of Jay Van Arsdale. I am now diverting my attention to furniture and toys for my three and 1/2 year old daughter, which has put a big smile on my face and a dent in my woodworking time. Interested in meeting some of the members on this forum.

I found this book by accident, and I would urge you to do the same. If you are a joinery junkie like me, this is a must have. I love the hand drawn illustrations in the book. You will learn about alot of techniques that will never show up in yo...
This book was a revelation for me and started me down the path to higher quality work. It is such an easy read with so many Ah yes moments. When I am in a funk sometimes, I still pick it up to re-energize myself. Not a technique book, but a Ze...
