So I haven’t been able to get into my shop lately due to other projects going on. I was at the library yesterday and happened upon this book by Spike Carlesen. Admittedly I’ve only read through the first three sections, but I’ve enjoyed the conversational/q&a style writing as well as some of the ideas it’s given me. It is definitely geared for woodworking newbies, But would be good review or flip through for others

Each chapter discusses general style of furniture and factors that contributed to that area’s style. Then there are many photos showcasing examples. There are also a couple pages on region wood and to...

At a recent Wood Show I met a gentlemen by the name of Graham Blackburn, an Englishman that was the Hand Tool Rodeo expert giving presentations. I sat through all of his seminars and learned more in those hours that I ever had. I’ve gone after every book and web site I could get my hands on and all of those fall in the shadow of his book, Traditional Woodworking Hand Tools. This hardcover book is written like good books used to be, with thick rich pages and beautiful headings and tit...
