    Awesome channel man! Found it last week and have been trolling your videos since. Love books so when I saw thing made sense to watch it. Kind of regretting that in hindsight. As the video played I added each book to my Amazon cart and at the end of the video I have £232 (GBP) worth of books in the cart that’s $474 Canadian Dollars. -.-

  6. Shogun-Jimi on May 30, 2022 at 8:03 pm

    After a day of thinking, I really have a question for you. How many books did not make the video? And the Japanese Joinery book has already arrived. 25$ American pesos

  7. Omstead Properties on May 30, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    Damn it I just bought 5 books and then watched this and bought 5 more… grrrr!

  8. Romelia Polly on May 30, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    Try to do it with Woodprix plans 🙂

  9. Devin Padilla on May 30, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    Of all wood working book I have read, this “pepe amazing plan” (Google it) is the best. My wood working trainer suggests it to all of his scholars. I am surprised by the amount of detail the authors go into topics. The tutorials are clear and simple to follow, the material is interesting.

  10. Jeff Campbell on May 30, 2022 at 8:05 pm

    You want to crack a woody? Go to Japan and check out the hardware stores or home centres as they call them. The tools are cheap, great quality and you will find tools ‘only in Japan’ there. Also, the carpenters clothes, shoes and accessories are ‘sweet as bro’.

  11. Kai on May 30, 2022 at 8:05 pm

    Great. Now I can double my woodworking library. 😉

  12. Map Blahblah on May 30, 2022 at 8:09 pm

    Have you had any luck with Japanese furniture books?

  13. The Viking Carpenter on May 30, 2022 at 8:09 pm

    great channel man glad I found it.

  14. Adam Lynch on May 30, 2022 at 8:11 pm

    I have Steve Chappells book and rupert Newmans book I’m lucky enough to have met them both and have been to lectures by Steve both worth having there’s one or two books there I want to order though.

  15. Alfredo Saavedra on May 30, 2022 at 8:13 pm

    Thank you for this!!!

  16. kmonnier on May 30, 2022 at 8:15 pm

    Thanks for the great recommendations; doesn’t your website have an amazon book link now?

  17. Flamous Cage on May 30, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    Mr the GHost, Mr the Vulture here. Fun, I own half of those books and can totally relate to your work. Nice. Keep your humorous cocky style, the respect and humbleness show right thru. Waver not. Ever. Carrion-eater out.

    Thanks for sharing.

  20. Deqster on May 30, 2022 at 8:19 pm

    To my knowledge most orgasms involve wood… well at least for men.

  21. SelDeTerreMusic on May 30, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    I am a violinmaker and not a carpenter….. but love design, so I just purchased "Patterns of Home"..looks like an amazing read. After getting to know you through the channel I was surprised that you didn”t have any of James Krenov’s books on the list. Also David Pye’s "The nature of Workmanship" is amazing. Great Channel !!

  22. KelliGreen Thumb on May 30, 2022 at 8:24 pm

    Amazing! You are truly gifted. Thanks for sharing your projects. I never tier of watching.

  23. Robby Welch on May 30, 2022 at 8:25 pm

    legend, thanks to you

  24. Rosamund Connor on May 30, 2022 at 8:28 pm

    Of all wood working book I`ve read, this “Bαzοmο Tdy Plαn” (Google it) is the greatest. My woodworking trainer even endorses his learners to read the book. I am impressed how authors managed to write very detailed topics. I am astonished by the material and did not have a difficult time following the lessons. .

  25. Andy Lawson on May 30, 2022 at 8:28 pm

    I’m new to your channel and I, like you, love carpentry books.  I was particularly interested in the Complete Japanese Joinery book and went straight to amazon to find it.  So in the UK it costs £2904.76 ($4529.19 US) new!!  Used it costs £89.12 ($138.96 US).  I thought it was really funny how expensive that book is to buy new.  Thought you’d like to know.   Would you still recommend it at the used price?

  26. deezynar on May 30, 2022 at 8:28 pm

    Buy Tage Frid’s books.  He goes over everything that’s important.  He shows how to make each joint with hand tools, portable power tools, and stationary power tools.  He’s got you covered. His book on joinery is my choice for having on a desert island.

  27. Arden P on May 30, 2022 at 8:29 pm

    Do you have any recommendations for books about ‘traditional’ carpentry? Like how to frame a house. If you do that would be great, I really want to learn how homes are built as well as other structural things.

  28. Mark Gailmor on May 30, 2022 at 8:29 pm

    One more book and this is one that is for woodworking. It’s called TImber Frame for the Rest of Us. I highly recommend it to anyone learning about TImber Frame because the author speaks in plain language. And, of course, any books on cordwood construction. Cordwood uses significantly less wood then a timber frame home and will last longer.



  29. ozzy85Mpower on May 30, 2022 at 8:36 pm

    I remember starting work with my dad at 17 as an apprentice joiner anyway come pay day I received a modest wage considering I was pretty green I wasn’t expecting much but I always remember what he told me " the more you learn the more you earn" what a great saying! BTW just discovered your profile on Monday and subbed im working my way through your vids which are excellent and very informative keep up the good work!

  30. Chante Coomer on May 30, 2022 at 8:37 pm

    My best woodworking book? WOODPRIX!

  31. kevin bilz on May 30, 2022 at 8:38 pm

    I’ve been working my way through your videos and was obviously planning to subscribe once I got to the end, but this is the video that made me put the video on pause so I could purchase a book. The Complete Japanese Joinery will arrive tomorrow. I also stopped putting off the subscribe, and added another like. Great book selection. Thanks.

  32. Bravo whiskey on May 30, 2022 at 8:40 pm

    Great video! Just subbed . I’ve been a carpenter, woodworker, cabinet maker for a few years one of my favorite books that was a personal game changer for me was Understanding Wood by Bruce Hoadley. Super dry read but packed with helpful information. Also books on sharpening. Love the Greene bros; pretty sure they must have been hobbits.

  33. Catalin Barbuceanu on May 30, 2022 at 8:40 pm

    Thanks, mate!

  34. stephen wilson on May 30, 2022 at 8:41 pm

    Good morning. first off I’d like to say that you are an amazing carpenter. (not blowing smoke here) I’ve "literally" spent the last week watching as many of your videos as possible…that’s all I’ve been doing. for the longest time i thought i was pretty good at woodworking in general, but after watching your work you knocked me down to pretty much ground zero. Which is a good thing because if you never reevaluate yourself as an artist you’ll never really reach your full potential….in my opinion anyways. It’s mind blowing how much there is to learn but the books in this video are a great starting point in conjunction with your other videos. I appreciate that you are thorough and easy to understand. Your humor is actually a confidence builder in that it sets the tone for a more relaxed and comfortable learning environment…super important for new learners. Anywho, thanks for the inspiration and motivation to be better.

  35. NoFace Nomad on May 30, 2022 at 8:41 pm

    Samurai!! I was wondering if you could recommend the order in which I should prioritize my tools. I have a small budget but I already have a table saw, and radial arm saw. I just completed an outdoor shower from scratch for my studio but I want to pursue hand carved joinery.

    I am just wondering which tools to prioritize so I don’t spend my money on something and then realize I have shortchanged myself with my purchase. I still need chisels, planes, router, band saw, etc.

  36. Dan Mills on May 30, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    My amazon wishlist just got much larger. Thank you.

  37. Breal191 on May 30, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    Just got The Complete Japanese Joinery. Thank you for the inspiration!

  38. drm31415 on May 30, 2022 at 8:45 pm

    You autodidact.

  39. Josh Bunter on May 30, 2022 at 8:47 pm

    out of all of these books which one would you recomend most? i love both japanese carpentry and timber framing. i dont want to read for joy, i want to read to learn techniques and ideas which i could then use.

  40. 37South on May 30, 2022 at 8:47 pm

    I seperate home building, construction and carpentry from woodworking. I don’t see them as the same so when you have a video titled woodworking books but the titles are mostly home building I’m a little disappointed. Looked like some good books nonetheless…

  41. Dope Fitness24/7 on May 30, 2022 at 8:47 pm

    love your video man! im planning to be a carpenter soon. how much did all those books cost you all together?

  42. Mark Gailmor on May 30, 2022 at 8:49 pm

    This is my favorite book on home construction. Granted, it’s not a woodworking title but if you design a home with two floors then would would come into play. I also love the underground home by Mike Oehler. Look him up on youtube. His current home, which is almost finished, is amazing.


  43. G Wynja3 on May 30, 2022 at 8:51 pm

    Thanks for the video! It’s nice to know about some good books.

  44. Maxid1 on May 30, 2022 at 8:51 pm

    One of the most inspiring and instructive books I read were the Foxfire series. Log cabin building really inspired me.

  45. ryn76 on May 30, 2022 at 8:52 pm

    Just added them all to my Amazon wish List! Thanks buddy!

  46. Shannan Schisler on May 30, 2022 at 8:55 pm

    Splendidly to see Stodoys have new plans which helped me save some money and energy for this construction.
