SO what books are you guys working on right now? I’m working on book about tuning and using antique tools at the moment. And while I’m not reading it at this very second I got curious as to which books if any you guys are reading. Since most of my friends would be bored to death with the books I’m reading, talking about them to them would be a fruitless endevour.

In addition to about all the WW mags, recently I have added Turning Wood book by Raffan, and have enjoyed Tolpin’s The Toolbox Book, although I mostly just look at the pictures on that one.

a picture is worth a thousand words, sometimes though I try to read the books I can figure out what all that text is saying just by taking a quick glance at the illustrations sooo you’re not alone on that one.

ALL books in general or only wood related books?

I like joinery books. Right now I’m enjoying “Encyclopedia of Wood
Joints” by Wolfram Graubner.

And then I;d like to get the above Japanese book on joinery, fascinating work.

I won’t say just woodworking but books applicable to the topic, metal work so on I guess.

Waho6o9, that does look like an interesting book
