Made By Hand

Furniture Projects from the Unplugged Woodshop

By Tom Fidgen

Format: Paperback

SKU# Z4270

Learn the simplicity of using hand tools, while you build!

Traditional woodworking using hand tools can offer a more satisfying relationship with the wood and the creative woodworking process. It's quieter, cleaner and maybe even a little spiritual. It's no surprise that many "plugged-in" woodworkers are returning to the roots of this treasured skill. Where some hand-tool books focus solely on the use of hand tools, Made By Hand takes you right to the bench and shows you how to start building furniture using these tools.

By working through the six projects in this book, you'll learn the basics of hand-tool woodworking and how to use the tools effectively and efficiently, then add joinery skills and design complexity. The accompanying DVD includes valuable insight into the tools themselves and a look at the techniques that make these tools work so well.

As one who is moving to using handtools more and more to build furniture I find Tom's commitment to going unplugged inspiring. His writing is clear with good explanations of procedures. Anyone who wants to do more woodwork using handtools will find this book very useful. Highly recommended!
