Make: Getting Started with 3D Carving

Zach, let me start by congratulating you on your upcoming Make book. I look forward to owning it.

Currently it is available to pre-purchase on Amazon. Will Inventables be offering this book and offering any incentives to purchase through them? Or is this a private endeavor? I would hate to jump the gun and pre order it now only to miss out on a special in the near future on the Inventables website. I missed the Black Friday special bc I placed an order the day before it become available. I don’t want to do that again.

Again, Congratulations. Can’t wait to read it.


That’s cool, congrats Zach.

Thanks! Book selling rules are quite strict. We are not able to offer any kind of discounts because the major book retailers have contracts with the publishers that set the price.

That being said we may include it in the box with Carvey.


Do you know when it will be available?

No that’s not up to me :smile:

Just finishing my my xcarve build over the holidays: Preorder of this book made! Excited you’re releasing something on actual paper :smile:

I just ordered this as well. Looking forward to receiving this and Diresta’s book when they ship.

Made me chuckle that the cabin porn link has 8 hits

Amazon says March 25th.

Thanks for the link. There sure are some interesting photos on there! Bookmarked. :smile:

How cool would it be to have a carving “Cookbook” all the pictures and directions on completing a good cut. Looking forward to seeing this myself.

I looked.

I wonder if the files will be available for download?

Not the usual type of porn but whatever floats your boat :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Amazon is showing March 25,2016.

Under features and details.

Anybody hear when this is going to come out?

I’ve had it on order since December. Amazon previously had a March 25 release date, but now they are just reporting that they know nothing.

Just cancelled my order on this and a similar title. Looked like a great book but the original ship date was March 25 and now I see dates everywhere from middle of May to end of June. Maybe I’ll reorder once the outdoor seasons have passed.

It’s gonna be next year. Not sure where these dates are coming from.

We are reworking the projects to be more collaborative.

I can confidently tell you it won’t ship by then.
