Woodworking Books

February 11, 2016

A few books I edited have been released recently and I realized I’m overdue for posting something about these projects. All of them have been fun and interesting to work on and I’ve been learning a bit about the craft in the process—it’s been a lot of editing, hence the lack of blogging.

Hopefully I’ll be posting more regularly about my writing/editing adventures as well as some work in the woodshop as I learn more. For now, here are range of things that are now available:
