We are currently at work on our June 2011 issue, which we have dubbed “The Bookcase Issue,” and it is the first jab at steering the magazine’s content so that the articles relate to each other in obvious and sometimes not-obvious ways – a la Woodworking Magazine, may she rest in peace.
To that end, we are working on a couple articles for the issue that I
don’t want to say too much about because it will give it away to our
competitors, and I happen to be a bit of the Type A personality.
For one of the articles, I’d like to ask your assistance. Just answer the
following question: If you could own only one woodworking book, what
would it be? You can make your choice based on sentimental or practical
factors. Maybe you like the pictures. Maybe you use it every day in the
shop. Perhaps it opened your eyes in some significant way. It can be a
book that’s in print or long out of print.
Simply post the title of the book and the author as a comment below. You don’t have to say why
you like it, or why you chose it. You are welcome to do that, however.
So thanks in advance!
Oh, and to kick things off, here’s my pick: “Illustrated Cabinetmaking” by Bill Hylton.
