Book Recommendation: Cabinetmaking and Millwork by John L. Feirer
Terrific book! I bought a used copy online for a few dollars, and it's great. I didn't realize it before getting my copy that it seems to be an old textbook of sorts for those studying the trade of Cabinetmaking.
It was first published in 1967, and some things are dated--like the photos of trendy kitchens.....and instructions on being sure to tuck in your tie when you're working with machinery..... but overall it's not dated at all. I was surprised to see that the woodworking techniques explained and described are almost exactly the same as today.
Power tools have evolved in 40 years, but great woodworking is very much the same. I highly recommend the book. It's a big fat text of over 900 pages with very detailed chapters on tons of tools, tons of techniques, wood, design, and other.....
