Favorite books on tools?


#1

Curious what notable books folks have found on tools. My favourites:

  • Choosing and Using Hand Tools by Andy Rae — woodworking, was a fortuitous purchase on remainder which informed my tool purchases for a long while
  • Virtuoso: The Tool Cabinet and Workbench of Henry O. Studley — beautiful photographs and wonderful writing about one of the most famous tool cabinets
  • Quality is Contagious: John Economaki and Bridge City Tool Works — John Economaki is a controversial figure, and his tools even more so, so it’s interesting to see his side of the story
