Believe it or not, youtube is a great resource. If you want to know how something is done, you will probably find several videos on it.

I hate referring to other forums within a forum. Just smacks me wrong. However I will give you a few pointers for places to look online other than forums…

Youtube., Marc is a member here, and I believe one of the contributors / writers for Wood Magazine, and has a fantastic site. His style is a bit funky, but he is easy to follow and a heck of a nice guy… has lots of goodies that are worth checking out.

I would second Marc’s site very helpful…just watch the videos even if it’s not something you plan on making he will show you many different techniques. otherwise I check out youtube as well or there are 100s of great books out there. but hey if you need help with anything this site is the place to go.

I like getting period reproduction books that go into builds in graphic detail. When I first started reading them, I’d get confused very quickly but over time, you get accustomed to the build process. This familiarized me with the terminology so I could have an semi-intelligent conversation with guys who knew more than me. Books were it for me.
