Hi everyone, I have my workshop shelled in and about to embark on the woodworking craft. I have little woodworking experience and right now I am soaking up all this stuff throught web sites like this one and books. In case anyone is interested I have found 2 books that are worth the money, for us saplings. They are: “Woodworking Basics-the essential benchtop reference”, by Spence & Griffiths and “Woodwroking Basics” by Peter Korn. Just in case anyone out there is like me, new and green. They are worth the cash.
