I’ll keep this simple. Popular Woodworking is running a special deal on their online e-book subscriptions. For ten bucks a month (half off) you get full access to back issues of both Popular Woodworking and Woodworking magazines, plus tons of great books that usually cost a bundle. I subscribed because I learn a lot from reading stuff like this, and the price was too good to pass up. It’s a limited time thing, so if you’re interested, you’d better get on it! Here...

Most important before...

How to make money selling your work as a Artisan

How to make money selling your work as a Artisan

662 days ago by Tom Godfrey | 13 comments »

Want to review a book that I just purchased a few days ago. It’s called “Artisans & Money”, written by Joe Rollins. Some of you may remember me posting a review of his lathe cutting tools and as of today I have had 1146 views with 7 comments. Not sure if any of you ordered any of these tools but if you are starting out in wood turning or even if you have been turning for years I still feel this is one of the best investments you can make. Why? Great product at a lower price than other see...

Great Read for All Woodworkers

Great Read for All Woodworkers

253 days ago by BigDawg | 13 comments »

I originally ordered the book, Hybrid Woodworking by Marc Spagnuolo because I have been an avid reader of his website, The Wood Whisperer, for years and I wanted to support him and his efforts to educate us all about woodworking. What I found, was book that I simply could not put down. Marc’s instructional style of prose is very readable and informative. Having watched virually every video that Marc has produced on his free site, and having been a Guild memeber for a couple of years,...

I picked up this book recently after stumbling across a mention, then a review, then a bunch of raves. I chose to purchase the book directly from Lost Art Press, getting the Deluxe Edition (w/ CD). Their website didn’t want to have anything to do with my credit card, but that simply meant I had to deal directly with a real live and very courteous individual. The verdict on the purchasing experience: the folks at Lost Art Press are a pleasure to deal with. But, you may be wondering...

Handplanes, which, where, how, and why do they give the best surface

Handplanes, which, where, how, and why do they give the best surface

1995 days ago by PurpLev | 12 comments »

I have recently started using the local library service and gotten a lot of reading material, from the taunton press, popular woodworking publishing, and others (japanese woodworking and such), and while some were a nice ‘introductory’ level material, others excelled at the level of knowledge, the ease to grasp it, and the relevance it had when trying to apply it to the everyday woodworking experience. This one was one of them! While some books bore you (me) with endless storie...

“The Fine Art of Cabinetmaking by James Krenov”

“The Fine Art of Cabinetmaking by James Krenov”

1060 days ago by Don W | 12 comments »

A few months ago I found the 1975 version of “The Fine Art of Cabinetmaking James Krenov” at a flee market. It was well worth the $5 I paid for it. There are newer reprints that I haven’t read, but I’ll assume they are similar. This book is probably the first woodworking book I’ve actually read cover to cover. There is usually a chapter or section I’ll skip because of non interest or “I already know that”. This book isn’t perfect, it has some flaws...
