Check your local public library if you haven't. I currently have 9
woodworking books checked out from my local library. I find it helpful to
read the same basic information from several different viewpoints.
Ignore tools. Everyone gets hung up on tools, when it's the product
that matters more. The other books will tell you quite enough for the
basics. A few specialist books on tools like the table saw, router or
bandsaw will be more use, as you need them,.
You missed out wood. There's a lot to learn about it. Hoadley's
"Understanding Wood" is excellent, but hard going. Try an easy start
with the October issue of Fine Woodworking - an inspiration magazine
Your first projects will probably be in plywood or other man-made
sheets. When you move towards solid timber, then you should certainly
study some of the moisture and movement issues.
