    Does any one have news on Paul’s new book – just in case I missed a post or some announcement.

    I think I read it will be available around November/December??

    I was hoping Santa will be able to bring me one copy when he passes over the castle in Wales… 🙂

    And Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year full of shavings/projects to You ALL


    Enjoy the learning path...!!


    Hi Antonio,

    In a recent thread (1 – 2 weeks) I think for the Tool cupboard, he said that he wanted to take out a section and add another and therefore the book would be delayed until the Newyear.
    Typical that he would rather take the time to do the best work possible rather than rush it out for the Pre-Christmas market


    Thanks for the info.

    I agree with you. The book is worth waiting for
    But now I have to rewrite my letter to Santa… 🙂

    Enjoy the learning path...!!

    Hi guys,

    Yeah, we are well behind schedule on the book. The good news is that the book is now complete. We are doing a final round of checking and review and the book will go to press in January. The final availability depends on the printers schedule but we should be able to give a fixed date for availability soon. Here is some text from the flap of the dust jacket:

    In the internet age, producing a book is not a particularly efficient way of dispersing information. That said, there is something so simple and enjoyable about picking up a book, owning it, and enjoying it for years to come. Books preserve information in a way that no other medium can. This book is about legacy.

    We can’t say that and then come out with a book that is represents anything less than our very best efforts.

    Thank you all for your patience!

    I own Paul’s first book, Woodworking 1 & 2. It’s wonderful book and I recommend it to anyone serious about working wood. The text and accompanying pictures are easy to follow. I used this book to make my workbench that many of you may have seen on YouTube. For me, I can wait for Paul’s latest book because I know it will be worth the wait.


    I took own Pauls first book and have been looking forward to getting me hands on the newest. Will there be a preorder special with autographs? Just kidding I really do want to get my hands on the new one anyway.

    The first book and videos were what got me into woodworking with hand tools. Paul’s no nonsense, down to earth instruction showed me what was possible with a few tools and the right techniques, and gave me the confidence to try for myself. The machines (other than the lathe) are seeing much less use.

    I too, am awaiting the new book with great anticipation.

    Thanks for the update Joseph! Paul exudes greatness and extending the book to achieve that is welcomed! His work and philosophy has changed my attitude and methods over the years and this book is a great addition to his sharing of knowledge.

    I’m sure others feel the same way in that it would be a jewel on the crown if Paul could autograph the book at request! Maybe an option at checkout or only for pre-orders if you plan to make that available?

    Looking forward to the book and delay it as long as necessary!


    Thanks for for taking the time to update us Joseph!

    Enjoy the learning path...!!
