“Woodworking in Estonia” is listed as one of Roy Underhill’s favorite books. I am leading off with this statement
so woodworkers who are not interested in Roy will not waste their time reading this. This book was out of print
and circulation for quite a while and unavailable. Lost Art Press decided that the book was worth reprinting and
has done it’s usual excellent job of research and reprinting and it is now available from them for $29.00. My
copy is on its way to me. If you think you might be interested in this book, you can access a pdf on line and
read some of this book. I realize that I am just a little above that certain age and what appeals to me will not
appeal to all woodworkers, but I think this will appeal to some of you Lumberjocks and it is worth mentioning.
After I have read and thought about the book I will put my review here. .
