what level do you want, Bill.

There are many books out there for general wood working, tool maintenance, tool specific....

I don't mind if other members disagree with my comments.

Bill Hylton has written some good ones on handheld router joints. One of the very best I've read so far is the first in a series of three by Tage Frid who was one of the first contributors to Fine Woodworking. The first book is about making joints. The second is about shaping, bending, and veneering. I have it but haven't read it yet.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Since most accidents seem to involve the table saw I suggest "The Tablesaw Book" by Kelly Mahler ( not to be confused with Kelly Maher who writes erotic books )(so I've been told).

Kelly Mahler is a professional woodworker who works & teaches in Berea KY. He travels with the Woodworking shows and is considered an authority on the table saw. As information the town of Berea is a "craft" town built around professional woodworkers. There is a college there with a curriculum in the arts of crafting. Worth the trip if you have never been there. Neat place. (they have a campground)
