Tonight after a scrumptious dinner of Sushi with the family, we went next door to the book store.  I found an interesting set of books that look like fun.  Called “The Modern Carpenter, Joiner, and Cabinet-Maker” it’s a reprint of a 1902 printing, with a new forward by Roy Underhill.  For $6 a volume, I couldn’t turn it down.

The Modern Carpenter, Joiner, and Cabinet Maker, 8 Vols.

Also, today I picked up my books that I’d reserved from the library, notably “Furniture in England: The age of the joiner” which after a brief scan is on my MUST BUY list already.  It focuses on the period of 1550 – 1650 furniture with lots of good pictures.

All in all a good book day.
