    Which book to get ?

    I'm about to order some items from Rockler and thought it would be a good idea to get a finishing book (or video) at the same tome - so, any recommendation on either of these?.

    Thanks

    The one by Jeff Jewett would be my first choice and it wouldn't hurt tho get the Profile of Sam Maloof. I have that DVD and it is an education in woodworking.

    Thanks for all the suggestions. For now I ordered the dvd and got free shipping. I will probably buy some of the other books at a later time.

    Happy New Year to everyone
