Books similar to Make: Tools by Charles Platt? Answered

I'm looking for books that are similar to Make: Tools by Charles Platt. It focuses on building skills around hand tools, starting with basic sawing and gluing wood and working through more advanced sawing, drilling, staining and finishing, basic joinery, and working with ABS.  I've looked at the other books published by Maker Media, but nothing really compares to the kinds of hands on learning and skill building.

I got TWO books!!!!

Ok, so, it was a pretty lame day at work, what with the apogee server crashing, and me being the only one to sort it. There was three upsides to my day, Firstly, my colleague gave me a cool pair of 3D glasses! (which is good, cos now i can see everything in 3D!) Secondly, my local burger king opened again, and i had an extra large bacon double cheeseburger! Thirdly, my book came, along with, MY OTHER BOOK! I knew that i had got into the book twice, which is great! but i only expected one copy of the book! Alas, i am now the proud owner of two copies of the book! So, i have to ask, does this mean i get two patches? did anyone else get into the book more than once, and received two copies? am i one of a kind? - gmjhowe

good electronic books for beginner

Hi there, Ive done a search on here but couldnt find a relevant post that recommends electronics for beginner type books. Does anyone have any reccs? Im not a noob to maths or programming and i did physics a-level that covered the basics of electricals but never actually done anything practical. Ive amazoned and found two books that seem to have great reviews and they are: Practical Electronics for Inventors by Paul Scherz and Title is Starting Electronics by Keith Brindley They seem good but from what i can tell they are only reference type books and dont have projects to help practice the knowledge. any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Minecraft Strategies Book Author Copies

I was cleaning out my Inbox a few minutes ago and came across an exchange from June of last year saying one of my Instructables was to be included in the Ultimate Unofficial Guide to Minecraft Strategies and asking what name I wanted to appear in the book. I replied and got confirmation of my choice but I haven't heard anything since. I recently received my Author copy for How to Fix Absolutely Anything which made me wonder if that was being done for this Minecraft book too. It was published more recently so maybe I'm just jumping the gun but I wanted to make sure I hadn't missed the boat on this. If free author copies aren't going to be a thing in the future or for every book is it at least possible to find out which books contain your Instructables?

I can put a file in Word Rich Text Format or PDF or Sony eReader's file format, so that is NOT the issue I simply want to be able to read the excerpts on my eReader Legally, by the way, most college professors have programs that will spot plagiarism from copying & pasting and the book parts are shown anyway All I want to do is better use what is shown, because I enjoy reading on my eReader

Does anyone know any good books on Electronics or Physics? Answered

I don't want any Teach-Yourself-Electronics-In-Five-Easy-Lessons sort of thing, I'd like something practical, but good theoretical Physics and Electronics ones will do too. I've got the Feynman lectures (the best textbook ever) and Horovitz and Hill (I find it a bit too complex and filled with electrical engineering details that are old and not very necessary for me). I'd like a book to learn something (not a new idea) new for me and maybe find a few project ideas. i'm making a sort of a wish list.  Any ideas?

Favorite 20th Century Author

I'm not sure how many people out there enjoy reading but I sure do.  I'm also always curious as to what kind of books other people enjoy.  So I'm going to be you all what is your favorite 20th century author and book. This does not mean an author born in the 20th century, but rather one that has published a book in said century. If any of you are wondering what mine are then I'd say my favorite author is John Stienbeck, and my favorite book would be Brave New World By Aldous Huxley.

Read with your Kids

Hey this is Brett. I have something that's extremely important for you to know. You need to READ with your KIDS! You need to do it regularly! You need to do it at the same time each day! It's been proven that kids who are read to by a parent can read better, earlier! In this day and age far too many kids are dropped off at a daycare and plopped in front of a TV set. I remember the good old days, growing up on the farm. As a four year old I remember settling down with Mom in front of our wood-burning stove. I would stare at the dancing flames as Mom would read "Dick and Jane" to me. The older children would do something constructive like a jigsaw puzzle or draw pictures at the kitchen table. Dad would sit off to one side of the room and carve us some small animal figures out of walnut. Thinking back to those days really brings back those feelings of warmth and security. It tears my heart out to think about my grandchildren and what they might have to look back on. Instead of the glow of a cheery fire and the safety of Mom's lap. They might look back and only remember the cold glow of the computer screen and the uncaring embrace of a beanbag chair. Once again, Please. Please read to your children. This really works! Books on tape just don't cut it. I read to my own children every night from the books they picked out. They've grown up now and are starting their own families. I hope that they'll think back to their nights with Dad and pass on this tradition of reading to their kids. Thanks, Brett.
