30 new, 22 from me.
image of book coverBuilding Arts & Crafts Furniture
by Paul Kemner
17 new, 12 from me.
Beautiful photographs and not the stock images usually found in books on Arts and Crafts furniture. The choice of projects, including Morris chair, settle, and glazed bookcase, are more advanced than you generally find in these sorts of books.

Making Classic English Furniture
by Paul Richardson
By classic, understand Georgian and Regency, so the book is of little interest to me. There is plenty of veneering required in these projects. And chapter four is devoted to hand veneering.

Router Joinery Handbook

image of book coverGood Wood Routers
by Albert Jackson and David Day
Fairly straightforward introduction to the router, but some of the home-made jigs featured are too ambitious for the cursive details provided. Best for someone new to routers.

The Encyclopedia of Joint Making
by Terrie Noll
35 on Amazon! presumably out of print, 12 from me.
With very specific subject matter, this book is much more useful than the endlessly repetitive "introduction" books.
