Here’s a good one by Jim Tolpin and here’s a must read by Chris Schwarz. Hope this helps!

I 100% agree with both these choices. The Anarchist’s Tool Chest put me over the handtool edge. Some others I would suggest are The Complete Dovetail by Ian Kirby and Hand Tools Their Ways and Workings by Aldren A Watson very informative and some of the nicest drawings of tools I have ever witnessed in a book.
