What a goldmine this book from American Woodworker magazine is! Your US$19.95 will save you hundreds, maybe even thousands if you are doing commercial woodworking.
“Getting the Most” suggests that you can save a bundle just by buying lumber a grade or two below the best. A Wood Miser could save you thousands over the long haul and salvaging used wood has a high payoff as well. Bandsaw resawing is another way of saving $ and the authors cover this in great detail.
There are great tips for milling rough lumber, stabilizing green wood and how to best dry your own wood.
More good stuff shows you how to spot those ‘special’ wood species in the rough and how to best work with them.
This is an excellent book for both the amateur and the professional woodworker, one you will refer to on a regular basis. Buy it and save money!
