  • Cabinetmaking books

    Any inputs? I enjoy collecting magazines and books as I bet many do, but which ones are really great for learning cabinetmaking, from basics on up through advanced work. Just looking for some ideas, thanks in advance.

    Illustrated Cabinetmaking by Bill Hylton, ISBN 0-7621-0183-0. Probably one of the best if not the best book on the subject.

        Thanks for the response guys. I guess maybe I'll go with those two, definitely the Illustrated Cabinetmaking book.

          If you want a book that covers cabinet basics, as well as all the door designs, other furniture, joints and their respective uses, etc, I would also recommend "The Complete Illustrated Guide to Furniture and Cabinet Construction" by Andy Rae (Taunton Press)

            I really like "Modern Cabinetmaking". It covers many subjects and has got me out of few jams.

                Barnes and N Oble have really insightful books you can go sit and read before purchasing them.. Or thats what I like to do before I make the purchase..

                  I've received some good deals on used books from Amazon. They have a number of used booksellers on their list.

                    I borrowed this one from my library; it is a useful read.
