Re: UPDATE: Wooden Boxes, by Doug Stowe and Strother Purdy

Thumbed through this book in Barnes and Noble. Would make a nice addition to my stuffed bookcases, along with many other Taunton publications. Put my name in the hat. Thanks.

Re: UPDATE: Book Giveaway: Hand Planes in the Modern Shop by Kerry Pierce

Sounds like Mr. Pierce has been in my shop. Seems like no matter how many machines I use in the building of a project, some type of plane gets pulled out to complete the job. Mostly a hand plane, but sometimes a smoother to get 2 adjacent surfaces level. Love to get my hands on this book.

Re: UPDATE: Book Giveaway: Wharton Esherick Studio & Collection

Would love to dive into some more photos and comments of the timeless work of this master. I have the book that chronicles the life/work of Esherick, Maloof and Nakashima and it is a real treat. These are some of the finest craftsmen of our era.

Re: UPDATE: DVD Giveaway: Wood Science & Design by Hendrik Varju

Sounds like something I should have read years ago. Could have saved me some headaches. Some early articles only briefly touched on the subject of wood movement and properties. The videos sound like a great way to get into a class without the travel.
