« Part 1: New website!!! Part 2 of Woodworking for Everyone - My book is launching May 2014 in South Africa series Part 3: iBook version might be the first of its kind in the world (?) »

Hi fellow woodworkers, I mentioned earlier in the blog that I was working on a book which is now complete and due for launch in May 2014 in South Africa. I don’t know what the availability will be outside of South Africa and would love to chat to anyone with connections and ideas for other markets if that might be a possibility.

So here are some images from the book which will give you a flavour of it. It is being published in English and another official language in South Africa – Afrikaans. It features 13 step by step projects of a range of difficulty with photos, illustrations, a tools and techniques section and even a tribute to my late father who taught me woodworking.
