2 New Books for Building Woodworking Skills

August 22, 2016

I’ve had my head down working on getting a couple of books off to the printer and haven’t had chance to post. I’ve finally come up for air and wanted to mention the two latest books I worked on that are now (or soon) available.

Furniture Fundamentals: Casework is a new book in a series of 3 books that cover the most commonly made furniture forms. The first two books tackle Chairs & Benches and Tables. This new book rounds out the series by focusing on casework—essentially box-based furniture (dressers, chests, cabinets, bookcases, and so on). It’s a great addition to the series and covers an essential topic for building the core skills needed for making a wide range of furniture.

Next up is I Can Do That! Woodworking Projects, 3rd Edition. This is a great book for beginners or for DIY enthusiasts who want to build a quick weekend project. The techniques aren’t overly complicated and the tools and materials can be easily acquired at your local home goods store. This edition has 10 new projects.
