的知 looking for this book,

I feel like a guy who goes into the library and asks the librarian, 的知 looking for this book, it about this big and green, do you know where I壇 find it?
Sometime last year I ran across a thread that discussed or had a link to an e-book of an old out of print text for woodworkers. I致e since lost the document and can稚 remember the name. I hoping some of you with more agile grey matter cells may be able to point me in the right direction.
Thanks for any help!

Willie T, thanks for the reply, but no that was not it. This is an e-book created of photocopies of the original text which is long since out of print. If I were to guess I say it was printed somewhere around the 20's-30's. I believe it was an apprentice text... maybe from the Department of Forestry.

Anyone else have any suggestions??

Now that is a find! Not the item I'm looking for but it looks like it would be an interesting read.

I've tried searching on US Dept. of Forestry and a bunch of similar searches, but no luck yet. I even thought I may have originally run into it on Darren痴 links at his site but I don't see it now. Now I'm wondering if I saw it on that other woodworking site.

Doug,

I made a post last year of a book which sounds very much like what you are describing. I believe the date was in the teens but not positive. I downloaded the book to my laptop but since had like my fourth HD crash but I'll go through my saved data (about 90% was saved this last crash) when I get time.

You could go though my posts but since I have so many that would not be easy.

Try "Lee Valley Tools". They have reprinted quite a number of old out of print books.

TT that sounds encouraging..... sorry, not the part about your HD crash. Not much worse than that except maybe crashing the other kind of HD. I will try searching your posts, but if you happen to find it please let me know. If I find it I will make note of it here.

Good luck on your drive

Google Books has quite a few older 19th and early 20th century books on woodworking and other trades. Most of the older books can be downloaded in their entirety.

You can also download...or at least view...and print...I think.... old popular mechanics issues back into the teens. Lots of good woodworking info in them...plus a lot of old tool reviews and such.
