I recently let you know that I have regained full control of my first published book Working Wood 1&2 which was originally published by Artisan Media 10 years ago. In the acquisition, I took possession of all existing book stocks. They are taking up valuable space here at my workshop. This book is my foundational course for anyone starting out in hand tool woodworking. My plan is to update and rewrite a revised edition over the coming months. I want this new volume to parallel the same quality we produced in my Essential Woodworking Hand Tools book. I want it to be something that will sit side by side as a reference book for woodworkers.
We are discounting this original edition of the Working Wood 1&2 book to clear space and prepare for the latest version, hopefully later this year. I make no bones in telling you that the new version will substantially improve on the first edition. However, the first edition is still a good choice for anyone either learning the craft of traditional hand tool woodworking. Or indeed anyone wanting to have a first edition copy of my first published work in their woodworking library.
Aside from buying from us, as far as I can tell, the book is now only available from Lee Valley Veritas. We will not be printing any more of this edition. We have just 300 copies left.
If you are interested in hearing when the revised edition is available please enter your details below and we will let you know!
