Thanks a TON, Barb. Every little bit will help me (and others, I’m sure). Now all I have to find is a woodworkers dictionary.

Hi Barb,

Thanks for posting the link to the Evenfall Studios Woodworks Library. It is a free resource with over 185 books at the moment. I am always looking for and collecting books for the library, so if anyone knows of something let me know and I’ll see if it fits the criteria to include it.

The main thing is that there is a lot of information available out there. I just hoped that I could get it into one place where it would be easy to look over in a categorized way, and be available to woodworkers and hobbyists should they need an answer, and not have a source for good information.

If you like, there is other information on my website as well, just follow the link and use the top navigation on my site to navigate to it. There is plenty to see, come look around. Also if there any questions or comments please feel free to click my contact link and send me a note.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Rob -
You are very welcome; you’ve done quite a service for people looking for information. So much of what we do is covered by older resources, that having it available for examination is wonderful. Notice I linked to your webpage leading to the library, not to the library itself, just to show viewers how much is available on your site. You’re doing a nice job, and I hope many people use it and link to it.
Happy Thanksgiving to you, too!
