  • Best Woodworking Reading Material?

    I was given a $50 gift card for Border's Books and hope our esteemed members might give this new hand at woodworking some "best of" suggestions. FYI, I have lots of experience as a general handyman - minor framing, drywall, painting, electrical, and plumbing, but am taking a slow but progressive move into woodworking. Just bought my first saw, the TS2400 , which I intend to mount on a custom-built stand/cabinet. This stand will be integrated into the workbench but can roll away from my (garage-located) workbench for larger pieces. Anyway... let me bring this thread in for a landing . . . I want to spend my $50 wisely. Your advise is coveted.

        Hey guys thanks! I think that'll use up the $50 and then some. . . maybe I'll have to invest a few of my own greenbacks to get my "shopbrary" off to a good start.
