Topic tags/keywords: books woodworking resource website free pdf

i came across this website that has over 175 free woodworking and carpentry books online as PDF and HTMLs.
they are actually from the 18 and 1900’s but could be interesting to flip through if you have some free time!
I looked through a few of them so far and its interesting to see the techniques and tools they used back then… although alot of it remains the same!
Enjoy!

The page took forever to load, and I have 30MB/s internet speed!! It must be all the 17,005 (and counting) LumberJocks trying to download the books at the same time…LOL

mine opened right up! no problems here…. maybe try again later?
i noticed some of the books are 100pages some are like 300! so those PDFs may take longer?

I was on a college campus at the time of my last post. There must have been too may students downloading inappropriate material at once… ;-P

Now, I’m at home (with only 3MB/s speed) and it loaded instantly. Thanks so much!!!
