So...few weeks back i picked up a Popular Woodworking Table Projects book. Super cheap on clear out at Lv for either $5 or $8. Well its raining here today and before going out to shop i started browsing the book.
Nothing like a book like this to get u in shop mood.
I was looking through and checking out how one guy in the collection of 35 projects was doing inlay on a Baltimore card table then moved on to another project.
Then it hit me ....what a brilliant way to get insights into how different advanced woodworkers tackle various tasks.
Think about this. A project book with excellent descriptions and loads of great color pics taking u through 35 table projects of all kinds covers one heck of a load of techniques but the good thing in my view is rather than just being about say "how to make a mortise joint" shows u a dozen ways u can do it through each projects authors view.
So here a book on table projects becomes way way more and all that for a price of a few $$.
I dont if the compilers had this idea in mind but it certainly is worth taking note of when next u see a book like this on sale. You may not need or want to make a table but that dont mean it dont hold a ton of other real good value in it.
Besides many of these techniques can be used on just about any other project.
I LOVE THIS BOOK AND BOOKS IN GENERAL...to think my mother thought i did not like to read.
