While browsing I came across this site that has free e-books for downloading.

Hit this link and scroll down to “Wood-Working”. I was impressed with the detail in the Woodworking Joints and How to Build Mission Furniture sections.

I had the best luck saving it to HTML because it gave all the pictures and I need pictures!

Hope some of you find this educational and enjoy it.

Thanks, Brian. Neat old books there. I have a hard copy of the Mission furniture book. (I know, you wouldn’t expect anything less)

Yes Tim, I remember you told me you bought the first printing of that book when you were in grammar school. I knew that was the reason you went off the straight and narrow path with that style. :))

good link. I’ll have to spend some more time looking through these. There are a couple of items that really interest me, like making your own stain for oak as well as how to fume oak.
