I extend an offer, if you ever get to Havre de Grace, MD. I volunteer at Steppingstone Museum. The website is www.steppingstonemuseum.com. We have a very interesting collection of woodworking tools. The woodworking shop/display was featured in Tools of the Trade's Tool Hounds section.
Check out the website, get in touch and I promise you a treat. We close to the Public at the end of September, so you can have the place to yourself, almost.
Thanks for the invite I would love to visit!
You and I once spoke of collecting old books. It is a wonderful thing that you
are in a position to collect the real ones. I consider myself really fortunate to
hunt the ones on the internet and collect them for my library. The reading,
while not as fun as paper, has been very enriching.
What you know, and I have learned, is that these old books contain a lot. The
approach to the work is their secret, and while we have tried to reverse
engineer a lot of things, and have done so with success, we still guess as to
which was what our grandparents really knew was the approach.
Cumulatively, You have read a lot of books few people can access with great
ease until recently, and Chris has also been an ardent historian of
woodworking methods. I think the work you and Chris are doing will help us
all understand some of the secrets to these woodworking approaches we as a
modern society somehow lost touch with as woodworking evolved, and in so
doing will round out a lot of our current understandings about why we
approach a lot as we do.
Thanks for this book!
