I have a copy of "the book of woodworking, all the essential skills for working in wood - techniques, expert advice, projects"
this book is by chancellor press (pommie book) and cost me $30 big ones from angus and robertson. the fact that its pommie is good as its in metric and imperial and isnt a printed ad for some yank conglomerate.... seems to have all the gear, well worth it i reckon.
another good place for books i've found is borders in north ryde or hornsby -= north ryde is better. easy enough to get to from baulko.
