What?
It's a popular book and sells generally over £20 even second hand.
I'm doing a steady clear out of stuff - not a secret dealer. A lot of woodies to come.
P&P is a PITA what with packing and driving off to the post office or pick up shop - there's not much profit in it!

Lol. It's not the money Jacob ffs. It's the constant criticism of these benches over the years as fancy show pieces when there's 'nowt wrong wi' a stout english bench. No need for all thar fancy Roubo con-te-nen-tal new fangled razmattazz lad *kicks Jack Russell*
And ALL THIS TIME, lol, you had Schwarz's book. I'm tickled pink mate. You've made my night. :ROFLMAO: Never mind Margate. You have more front than Blackpool.
Bloody Genius.

Oh right! 🤣 Well I wouldn't have known Schwarz was talking b****s if I hadn't had the book! Catch 22 :unsure:
It's a jolly good book but as you say it misses out the great British classic bench.
He's a bit too gobby for me - he goes on and on.
PS I could do a print out about the classic bench and slip it in, then the book would be really worth having!

Coming up next will be "The Anarchist's Tool Chest". I'll start redacting the rubbish now and add margin notes in tiny hand writing.
I may be some time.

I gave mine away to one of our friends sons along with the Anarchists furniture something or other.

I am not sure anarchists are traditionally an authority on woodwork.....
