Woodworking Techniques (Essentials of Woodworking), from Fine Woodworking
Taunton Press, 2000.
$17.95; 192 pp.

Woodworking Techniques (Essentials of Woodworking) is a collection of articles on construction techniques necessary to assemble, decorate, and complete fine furniture. Theses articles, from Fine Woodworking magazine, cover topics such as table joinery, fitting drawers, building doors, veneering and inlay. The articles are written by some of our contributing editors including Garrett Hack, Christian Becksvoort, and Steve Latta. This book would be a good addition to any woodworking library.

Lucky JLYoung is the winner. His comment was chosen at random.

Check back this weekend for the latest giveaway, Fundamentals of Sharpening.

MarkAReed MarkAReed writes: Hi Mrs. Engel,

Thank you for thinking of us. Great idea.
I have been reading your magazine since the beginning.
My collection of FW and FHB go back to #54 in 1985.

The quality of the print and photgraphs, and the articles makes it the Achitectural Digest of woodworking. I have many of your books as well.

When FW comes in the mail, My wife knows to leave me alone until I have read the whole magazine. Then I read it again in the "library". Ha!

I already have this book so if I should win the contest, I would like you to offer it to a young woodworker that I have come to "know" thru his postings here on FW.

He reminds me of myself and I know it would be a nice addition to his own collection.

But, if you have an extra Lie Nielson plane lying around....
