We weren’t expecting Vol. III of “The Woodworker: The Charles H. Hayward Years” on joinery to show up until at least next week. But it landed in the warehouse yesterday and employees are busy scheduling an assembly line to ship out all pre-publication orders next week.
Vol. III on joinery (and the forthcoming Vol. IV on the workshop and furniture design) are the two volumes I’m most excited about. The joinery book contains almost everything from Hayward’s book “Woodwork Joints,” plus much more additional information on designing and cutting joinery that isn’t in “Woodwork Joints.”
At $37 (which includes domestic shipping), we think this is a bargain. You can order it here from our store if you live in Canada or the United States. If you live overseas, you can check in with the following sellers.
Vol. IV on the workshop and furniture design is due out early in 2017 – probably in February or March. The entire book has been designed by Meghan Bates, and Managing Editor Kara Gebhart Uhl is working on the final copy edit now.
Vol. IV will be the final volume in the series. All four books will be the same height and width, use the same paper and cover cloth. So they’ll definitely look like a set when grouped together.
For those of you waiting until all four volumes are available thinking that we’re going to offer a special discount on the set, don’t hold your breath. The price can only go up from here.
