When Senior Editor Robert W. Lang asked me to provide a list of my favorite woodworking books, I quickly agreed thinking it would be an easy assignment. That should have been the first clue that I was in trouble. But I didn’t catch on until I was sitting in front of the bookcase trying to cull the herd to a reasonable few.

Some readers may have noticed that I am partial to Greene & Greene. Really partial.  Unreasonably partial. Alright, obsessed. Consumed. You get the idea. So my first inclination was to simply list all of my books about the brothers and their work. That’s not really the spirit of the project, however, so I rejected that idea and decided to include just one. Which, of course, resulted in an increased sentence in front of the bookcase.

In the end, something approaching reason prevailed and I winnowed the candidates to a reasonable few. Those of you who are paying attention will note that Greene & Greene appear more than once.
