I recently had the folowing question posed to me on my Blog:


‘Hi are you able to advice me on a course book that would give me all the correct information to produce a high standard joinery drawing that would then be sent off for approval’


You can read my asnwer here:

Must have CAD books for Drafters


I thought it would be interesting to open this question up. What books have you read, which books to you turn to when you get stuck? Do you even read books ant more - do you prefer videos or the internet?

I've got a couple of books on joinery, from japanese to english/french timber framing and roofing, but none of those are really applicable to drafting - at least not to anything I do at the office.  I've also read and enjoyed 'the Art of Japanese Carpentry Drawing' - available from


I do have a question on your list -- perhaps a national nomenclature variation, but just what is 'First and Second Fixing Carpentry'?
