I purchased "Fine Woodworking Techniques Book 1" used and will used it in my workshop area for reference. This is a clasic woodworking staple for learning. I always am learning and hope to keep this in my hands on library close to the work bench, as this book can contribute to the work and in planning your projects. The information for the woodworker is ageless, though this book I received is not. It has been in a library somewhere and went past it's new period where a libraian will keep it for the viewing public only until it shows the value of it's work by becoming old, frayed and worn. I'll take it, thank you!
