Books for the Workshop!

Someone asked if I had any book recommendations that relate to metalworking or knifemaking, such a great question! To answer I decided to put together a quick video showcasing some of the books that have helped me the most, or influenced my thinking the most.

If you just want to get one really useful book, buy “Machine Shop Essentials”, it’s a great book for beginners in the workshop!
