Books for Woodworkers, DIY'ers and Pros Too

I've selected several construction and workshop books to make your project easier and built to last.

These are tools I've used or know to be worth the investment. Construction projects, both big and small, are easier to do with the right tool. Also you'll find some very informative books to not only inspire you but also make your task more enjoyable.

Reference Materials and Inspiration

You can't beat the internet for lots of information on how-to's, etc,., but having a reference book at hand can be priceless in the woodshop. I use these books often and recommend them for the woodworker or remodeler in your family.

Even if they are experienced craftsman, there are always new ways to build things! If new to woodworking, they'll appreciate the information offered.

This is our recommendation for anyone contemplating or planning to build a porch - great information and easy to use!
