I ve found my local library to be a great source for woodworking books. All of the ones BearKat mentioned are in my library and most libraries have an interlibrary loan program to get things they don t have in their collection. Save your money for tools and use that resource. Just a thought.

Bingo! This guy has it right. Only after you have checked the book out three times would I buy it. I have checked out “the fine art of cabinet making” by krenov from my local library about 8 times now and have been too lazy to order my own copy, but I always know if I want it I can go get it. Have you watched all seasons of the woodwright shop? Videos are a good help too. Do you know of other hand tool woodworkers in your area. Walking around their shop for five minutes can give you good info.
Let us know how it goes.
