Re: UPDATE: Why We Make Things and Why It Matters: The Education of a Craftsman by Peter Korn

When we make things we connect our inner-self with the world and the people around us.We may make things out of necessity or to create asthetic harmony, but ultimately it is to connect to self, family, others, and the world at large.

Re: UPDATE: Read a review of Wooden Boxes by the giveaway winner

Boxes are my thing...Any new ideas are always appreciated. I'm just getting into veneering and this book seems to fit the bill!

Re: UPDATE: The Foundations of Better Woodworking by Jeff Miller

I am a retired teacher and coach of thirty two years. Fundamentals have always been a part of my teaching and coaching. They are the one thing you definitely need for success.
I have also been a wood worker and carpenter for over thirty years and fundamentals are overly important in this field. Although I am 68 years young I still search for new knowledge everyday in my woodworking. I am positive the book, 'The Foundations of Better Woodworking' could not only enhance the woodworking knowledge I do have, but would make me a better woodworker.

Re: UPDATE: Hand Planing Techniques by Hendrik Varju

I have been a woodworker for thirty eight years (38), not counting all those years I was holding tools for my as he was doing work around the house. That would be about thirteen (13) extra years. And although I have used planes for almost my entire life, I sure would like to know what's up with which plane.
Watching videos on the internet has peeked interest in planes, techniques, proper use,and when to use each plane.
Yeah, I have some knowledge, but feel like a grade school kid when it comes to planes.
