Topic tags/keywords: book

I was wondering if anyone had a nice copy of “The Complete Japanese Joinery” (by Hideo Sato, Yasua Nakahara and Koichi Paul Nii) they would like to sell. I really want to incorporate some Japanese elements into some future designs and this book would really be helpful to me.

Thank you in advance!

I was able to find a copy of the book in my local library – might be worth checking. some libraries are also linked with other libraries and might be able to get you a copy from a a common source, or might be able to order you a copy.

You can purchase it on Amazon.com but the price will make your jaw drop.

gbear…I had been to that site already. It just links you up to Amazon. I should have noted that I have tried every single internet site already. They must not have printed many of these!

Not yet Gbear but I have “purchased” another one online. They say they have it so I am just waiting to see if I get an email stating “This book is out of stock and we will deliver once it is back in stock”. Which I know is never. So right now I am in a waiting game.

If the purchase doesn’t go through I would definitely be interested in your copy if you really want to part with it. Thank you so much!

Well I have a great update. Fellow Lumberjocker SASmith sent me a link that went through Barnes and Noble. I actually got a brand new copy of “The Complete Japanese Joinery” from them. THANK YOU SASmith!

I am still shocked. After seeing what a new book goes for on the internet I almost feel bad opening it and bending the binding!

Lets make some sawdust!
