    I am looking for references for green woodworking. I’ve recently picked up a hollow auger (Phoenix, manufactured about 1900ish) and a couple of spoke cutters, as I am hoping to make a few stools and chairs.


    Any references that people recommend would be apprciated.

    I have always like books by Drew Langsner, Mike Abbot, John Alexander, and, of course, any thing by Roy Underhill.

    Mike Abbott

    Check out “Going with the Grain” by Mike Abbott. That should get you started.

    How about “The Old Ways Of Working Wood” by Alex Bealer!

    “The Old Ways Of Working Wood” by Alex Bealer is a good book, too. I found mine in the bargain books.
