Yes, I'm new to the forum. So if this question is in the wrong spot, sorry. Anyway, I chose this forum because of the title…"Skill Share". I was looking to get a list of specific books people have found helpful, inspiring, or good for reference. Cabinet making books especially…but anything is cool. I read everything.

I would consider a Fine Woodworking online membership. You'll find a ton of information there. Taunton also has a number of good books/magazines available. I have found Bob Flexner's book on finishing to be a very good reference.

Even though I use power tools whenever possible, I have learned a lot from Roy Underhill. http://www.uncpress.unc.edu/woodwright/
And the only woodworking book that I have reviewed:
Illustrated Cabinetmaking How to Design and Construct Furniture That Works By Bill Hylton Fox Chapel
http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/3843
Read the comments, you will want this book,
Also, I have not read any, but for finishing, I would look to Charles Neil.
Enjoy!

I'm more of a furniture guy myself, so I think anything by Bob Lang or Darrell Peart are as important as any tool in the shop.

James Krenov's Cabinetmaker's Notebook is the best wodworking book I've read. It falls more on the inspiring end of the scale. I wouldn't suggest it for technical direction, but definitely a fun read. I agree with others on suggestions above
