Anarchist's Trilogy: Design, Toolchest, Workbench

TIL about this trilogy of books about a thoughtful person’s deep dive into the last two centuries of tools, mostly woodworking but others, too.

They’re available as free PDFs and at reasonable hardcover prices over on the Lost Art Press site. They also have a catalog full of other books about tools.
If you’re worried about the word “Anarchist” then I suggest reading their FAQ: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) About American Anarchism – Lost Art Press


Free to read online via the wayback machine, too:
