I am not ill but I am 80 years and progressing so I know that I am on the last leg of a down hill grade and I don’t know where the end is. Therefore; I have collected all of my woodworking magazines and books and even a small magazine rack as well as and am giving them away. I know that I won’t use them.

I have several hundred dollars worth of hardback woodworking books and magazines that I want to give to a much younger person than I am who will use them to good purposes. They are FREE BUT YOU MUST TAKE ALL OF THEM! See the pictures of them resting in my office space. There is even a book on building fancy caskets but I decided that I would exit in a different manner so I have no use for it.

I am in Wooster Ohio and I will not ship these due to the weight. The first person who will take them, and agrees to pass on the ones they don’t want to other young inspired woodworkers—gets them. All boxes are full.

PM me and when I receive the first PM from someone who wants them I will update this post so that you kind folks will know when they are gone. If the first person fails to show I will contact the second person and so on. When you see an updated “picked up” post from me then they are gone.

Just to clarify, I did not mean for the post to suggest that you had to be in Wooster to take these. Anywhere is ok as long as you pick them up here. Certainly nearby towns and Cities are welcome. If no one is interested by tomorrow noon EST I will post them on facebook local.

A very generous offer. It is nice for you to offer your collection to someone who can use it as a resource for their own projects. I am not close enough (nor young enough) to take advantage of the offer. However, if you have a vintage Unisaw or a nice 10” long bed jointer that you want to pass along to another woodworker I can probably rent a truck and make a road trip!

Very nice of you to make the offer to the LumberJocks.

Thanks guys, I guess I really don’t care about how young or old someone is I just want to see these books and magazines go to someone who will get a lot out of them and keep them alive. Now it is near 10:30 pm and I think I will hit the sac. larry

This is a good offer. I’d take you up on this offer, but I live in South Dakota. Should be good information for someone. But when you mentioned a book of casket building, that really caught my eye. I’d be interested on paying for that book and postage.

wooden dreams: That book was an inspiration to any woodworker. It had some beautiful caskets pictured in it and I’m really sorry your post didn’t come before the books went. I would have saved it out for you. I was surprised no one here or about wanted them. larry

This was not the book but it could get you started. Be sure to check your local Library.

I wish I would have seen this sooner, (I’m in North Canton), but I’m almost a month late since I’ve been busy with my own projects.

Larry:

I’m in Akron and just got rid of hundreds of my woodworking magazines. Seems everybody is interested in having the back issues on a flash drive these days.

Anyway, would like to hear more about your shop and work.

Sorry Larry I hoped someone nearby would take you up on your offer. I’m in South Georgia but have family in Cedarville and Kent. Hopefully I’ll be back up for visit in the spring!

I too have a large collection of magazines ranging from woodworking to model railroads. What I do to get rid of them is to take a few of them with me to doctor’s appointments and leave them in the racks. That way it gives others something more interesting to read than 3 year old newsweek and good housekeeping. Who knows, it may get someone interested in woodworking for the first time. So far, I found my magazines disappeared quickly from doctor’s offices.

mrRon, I did that with quite a few at my tire store. I really don’t care for most of the mags at business places.
