This book review is from the April 2012 issue of our LumberJocks’ eMag Toolemera is donating another book for a free draw! (See below for details)Working Drawings of Colonial Furniture By Frederick J. Bryant Oh how I wish I was a “real” woodworker. This book has the plans for the most beautiful furniture, including a gate-leg table that is very similar to an heirloom piece I have that was passed down from my great-grandfather, a banjo clock (I’d never heard of this...

This review is from the March 2012 issue of our LJ eMag Toolemera is donating another book for a free draw! (See below for details) Our Workshop by Temple Thorold“Being A Practical Guide to the Amateur In The Art of Carpentry & Joinery” This is another of the classics, written pre-1900. I find these books fascinating, as they bring the wisdom of days gone past into the present and for the most part are an excellent resource for woodworkers wanting to learn more about ...

This book review is from the February 2012 issue of our LumberJocks’ eMag Toolemera (Gary Roberts) is donating another book for a free draw! (See below for details)Woodwork Tools and how to use them This book, another one by William Fairham, is, in my opinion, another great book for woodworkers interested in learning all about hand tools, although there is some information about power tools in the book. Information includes the parts of the tools, how to use the tool, when to use the...

This review is from the January 2012 issue of our LJ eMag. Toolemera.com is donating another book for a free draw! (See below for details)The Art of Mitering “The Art of Mitering” is written by Owen Maginnis in 1892.

This book review is from the November 2011 issue of our LumberJocks’ eMag Toolemera is donating another book for a free draw! (See below for details)The Art and Craft of Cabinet Making by D. Denning This is another of the historic books, this one being written in 1891. This book doesn’t hold as much appeal to me due to it being a lot of words and fewer diagrams. But—some of the headings listed in the contents had me turning the pages to take a look. For example, don’t ...

This book review is from the October 2011 issue of our LumberJocks’ eMag Gary Roberts (Toolemera.com) is donating a book for a free draw! (See below for details) Woodwork Joints by William Fairham 1920 1920, you say? Yes, oh yes.

The sub-title of the book found on the inside pages does a great job of describing the ...
