How to book How to Carve Faces in Driftwood, By Harold L. Enlow

How to book How to Carve Faces in Driftwood, By Harold L. Enlow

1665 days ago by Dick, & Barb Cain | 3 comments »

This is the first book I bought, when I started woodcarving. I bought this book at the Ozark Folk Center in Arkansas in 1980. This book helped me a lot in my first attempts at carving. Harold Enlow shows how to carve Wind Spirits, Etc. With a lot of step by step images. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I just remembered that this “TREE TROLL” was taken from this book.

Tom takes you through the process of building shop cabinets using practical techniques and basic materials. Don’t expect exact dimensioned plans, but rather an explanation of the process you need to follow to design and build cabinets that will fit your work space and your tools. He has plenty of photos and details the entire process so well that even ...

The Best Woodworking Book I've Seen

The Best Woodworking Book I've Seen

1136 days ago by BentheViking | 10 comments »

This is basically a woodworking text book, but I’ve read it cover to cover. First of all the book is huge. First half is introductions to everything about woodworking—tooling, wood species, joinery, finishing, designing projects, setting up a shop. It doesn’t go into anything with so much depth that you will be a master at it, but is great as a general reference and a must for anyone setting out in the woodworking field. The second part (as the title references) has...

Making Mechanical Marvels in Wood by Raymond Levy

Making Mechanical Marvels in Wood by Raymond Levy

1715 days ago by Sivers | 8 comments »

I thought this book was really neat. I love mechanical “things”. All the models in this are meant to be demonstrative of basic mechanical devices that make up the larger machines that are all around us. Cam Follower, Couplings, Scotch Yoke etc…. I am hoping my finished models will be “desk worthy” as I am an engineer and the others in my office would get a kick out of this. I have built a simple one and am partially through one of the more challenging ones. Th...

If you sell, you should really take a look at this book

If you sell, you should really take a look at this book

1849 days ago by Durnik150 | 6 comments »

I have accrued a lot of woodworking books over the last 3 years or so and avidly read as much as I can about my favorite hobby. I occasionally sell some pieces so got hold of this book. This book is available at Amazon for $15.63 as of this writing. The author is Dan Ramsay. First off, not everyone needs this book. If you enjoy woodworking for the relaxation, the craft, or as gifts, you don’t need this book. If you are actually trying to make a profit or are seriously considering ...

After receiving...

A few months ago I got a copy of Dennis Zongker’s book and I’ve had a lot of time to digest it. I have to admit, I am just as in love with it now as I was when I first penned a review. So I decided to make a video… (Friend us on facebook, follow us on Twitter, and visit the Stumpy Store to help support the show!) The video is based on my original written review, which is transcribed below: When I first saw Dennis Zongker’s new book I thought, MAN that sucker’s shi...

I purchased the download version of this book and saved a few bucks using my discount code from The Wood Whisperer site. It is also available as a DVD. The download is in the .mp4 format and will play using Quick Time. The purchase, download and viewing with Quick Time was effortless. The download is 3 separate 30-minute videos at 160 MB each. If your download connection is slow, be aware that it may take some time. Once playing, the video quality on full screen lacks in clarity a bit b...
