Books are always a welcome gift in my house, especially old ones. My sister recently took a trip abroad to visit her favorite place on earth, London. Fortunately for me, I had the wherewithal to remember to ask her to keep an eye out for old woodworking books while she shopped for weird European fashion. I too love London, but rather than shopping for umbrellas I like to look for antiques. England (and a lot of Europe for that matter) is a great place to search for old books because, as Eddie Izzard famously pointed out, Europe is where history comes from, which makes finding some of these old out of print books easier in antique book stores in England than here in the U.S. So in between trying on rubber rain boots and taking artsy photos of old castles, my sister had time to stroll through a few antique book stores. It just so happened that she brought me back a real gem.

I have a lot in store for the blog this year including some interviews with local woodworkers, the Roubo bench (FINALLY!), some tool making, and a bunch of videos! Stay tuned because it's about to get exhausting.
