Great link Boardman, I bookmarked it. There are some cool logging history links and pictures (along with a ton of other good stuff).

Yeah, I liked the logging links. It still amazes me what those guys did without the power equipment of today.

Handplane Book

When I started to get interested in old hand planes my uncle showed me this book: http://www.amazon.com/dp/1561581550?...JJP5VZ1GD1YND&

It's a great reference on planes. If you have interest in hand planes whatsoever, this is a must have for your library.

Here is a site where you can go to find out how to wire your shop/buildings, to check the NEC, wire up switches, fix appliances, fix you plumbing, self help forums, and fix your lawn and trees, repair small engines, and more.

Tree identification

I recently discovered that my town has a yard that they bring all the trees removed from public land. The lumber is free to anyone willing to haul it off. So I was scouting around and saw some nice stuff, but was having a time identifying some of it just by the bark and a cut end. I am not an arborist by any means and have look at several websites as you suggested below, but still feel like I don't know what i'm looking at beside some of the more common hardwoods (white oak, red oak). Does anyone have any tips?

Air Drying lumber

3 links from a discussion in the "forestry and milling" section. dirtclod has a couple good ones http://www.chilternsaonb.org/downloa..._of_Timber.pdf
http://nrs.fs.fed.us/pubs/rp/rp_nc228.pdf

I had one bookmarked too. Between these 3 I reckon there is about all you need to know on the subject

Sorry if too basic, but the benchmark for solid fundamentals:

Modern Carpentry
by W. Wagner & H.B. Smith

Published by Goodheart-Willcox Co, Inc.

This was a shop/vocational textbook first published in 1969, revised multiple times, most recently 2000, and an invaluable source of reference in any library.

I have a lot of books in my library on "how to" and "were to get" and these 2 will be a great addition. And NO this isnt a paid advertizment. Just passing on good stuff.

Firewood BTU's

This seems counterintuitive to woodworking in a way, but we have a forestry section and let's face it all trees are not destined for lumber. Some just make darn good firewood. A member dirtclod posted the following links in another thread and I picked it out and put it here because it's good info.

G5450 Wood Fuel for Heating, MU Extension
