Just thinking of ideas for things for Father Christmas to bring me :)

Can anyone recommend a good book or two on joinery and cabinet construction/design ?

I've seen the following but wondered if they're any good:

The Complete Illustrated Guide to Furniture and Cabinet Construction
~Andy Rae

The Complete Illustrated Guide to Joinery
~Gary Rogowski

I've already got

The Complete Manual of Woodworking
~Albert Jackson, David Day

Thanks!

Fine Art of Cabinetmaking-James Krenov
Classic Joints with Power Tools-Yeung Chan

Thanks,

I must get some updated pics on the site - keep promissing to - and add some pics of my first project, the coffee table which turned out really well :) (especially considering it's my first proper piece since school all those years ago!
