Woodworking Books

I am an ever learning woodworker and was wondering if you older peeps could recomend some books that have proved worth the read. I purchased a Router resource and was amazed at how much it propelled my knowledge of the tool forward. Specifically really good books on sharpening, jigs, work flow, etc.

The Feb '05 (current) Fine WoodWorking has "27 books every woodworker should read". Should be a good place to start.

Look for books or videos by,
Jim Tolpin Sandor Nagyszalanczy Lonnie Bird Tage Frid Frank Klausz Pat Warner Bob Flexner Sam Maloof Bill Hylton Kelly Mehler Mark Duginske Jeff Jewitt Ernie Conover George Nakashima Curtis Erpelding John White James Krenov Garrett Hack Leonard Lee Mario Rodriguez Charlie Self Scott Landis Michael Dresdner
and others.
The list above are some of my favorites. Others can add to it with names missed.

Work flow? Raw wood comes in the door, gets worked up and something nice goes out the door. That's all you need to know about work flow.

Everyone should feel free to knock themselves out with their flow charts and three dimensional shop layouts. Me? I'm still living in the world where the rec. in rec.woodworking means recreational so I won't be bunching up my panties and puckering up my sphincter over the fact that my radial arm saw is against the far wall of the shop (where it fits best) and you have to go past the jointer (between the door and the radial arm saw/where it fits best) to get to it. Oh, and at the risk of everyone breaking out in hives, I have my other machines scattered all about the shop (where they fit best) with no regard for work flow.
UA100, who, in case the above comments weren't clear, thinks fretting over work flow in a hobbyist shop is about the silliest thing anyone could ever waste their time on...

Well, I have to plan my work flow! First, the car & pick-me-up truck have to flow outa the shop. Then, I have to cut whatever tool I need to use from the tightly packed herd and roll it out into the enormous void left by flowing the cars/trucks into the driveway. When I'm done making a mess and before nightfall, all these critters have to flow back to their respective spots so the HOA busybody won't think I'm leaving my vehicles in the driveway and participating in some verboten activity in my garage.
So, yeah - there's a lot of "flow" involved in my "rec".

I feel for those of you who have to deal with them.

Home-Owners'-Association. Also known as "old people with nothing better to do with their time than walk around and report violations". And eeeviiillll violations they are, things like parking cars on the street without a party permit, leaving one's garbage cans on the curb past sundown, or [gasp] worse, leaving them on the side of the garage where someone can see them. Oh, and I almost forgot, leaving one's garage door open longer than required to park the car inside and get the groceries into the house.
No, I don't live in a neigborhood with an HOA (deliberately bought where there wasn't one); some of our best friends do. The stories they tell are amazing (and people are concerned about the federal government being fascist? Some of these rules make fascism seem downright civilized).

Me too and me neither. Or me neither and me too. It was really hard to find a place that didn't involve one of those abominations, but I did. Fascist bastards can all kiss my lily white ass. It really makes me wonder what country this is anyway when a bunch of nosy pricks with nothing better to do than measure your grass can force you to move out of a house you OWN.
Although sometimes the fascist bastards are the town/city council. Some localities have grass laws and stuff. This one has some new trash can thing. They've put out a thing about garbage cans being taken in by 5:00 or something like that.
Well, I got news for you people. I don't have any better place to put my outdoor trashcan than out by the curb, so that's where it stays. I'm kinda looking forward to someone saying something to me about it. I'm going to buy a bunch of trashcans and put them across the front of my property with rocks in them, and then tell the fascist bastards it's my new fence. Then I'll let the grass get 48" high and put a few Firebirds and Camaros up on blocks in the weeds. Oh, and paint my house purple, with a mailbox that's every bit of 6" too high, and the wrong color.

For more fun, reseed with "Meadow In A Can", a mixture of wildflowers (some call 'em weeds) and declare your yard a wildlife sanctuary! The bunny-hugging, HOA version of a cat with buttered toast on it's back dropped out a window ... perpetual motion!

Work flow gets pretty damn simple if there's only one of you in the workshop.
(and yes, I've designed stuff for car production lines too)

My favourites for the specifics you list. But go to the library or a WW show to browse to see what suits you before buying.
"Sharpening": by Leonard Lee or Jim Kingshott Jigs: "Proven shop tips" or More proven shop tips" both by Taunton. Work flow: "The Workshop Boook" by Landis.
