Re: Are woodworking books obsolete?

Don Stephan
Few Internet videos seem to have the planning, preparation and thought I find in the woodworking books I own and occasionally refer back to. Bob Lang's experience is very disappointing, but in general I've never purchased a woodworking book without previewing a copy from the local public library or seeing positive reviews from trusted people. I use one of Bruce Hoadley's books several times a month, same with Richard Raffan's books; Jeff Jewitt and John Kassay several times a year.

Won't await reviews of Richard Jones (Sgian Dubh) book though - his many posts over the years, especially those on drawer slips, have shown clarity and organization that justify an immediate purchase.
