Reading is a great way to become a better woodworker outside of the shop. You can take a book on vacation, lay down in a hammock at the beach and still advance your woodworking skills. It does not save you from practicing but makes the learning process so much faster.
Here you find my favorite woodworking books as well as a few books from adjacent fields. Check out my reviews and see if the book is right for you.
The links marked with * are affiliate links. I get a small commission from the seller when you buy a book over the link. The price for you stays the same. Thereby you can help me keep this rolling. Thanks!
