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.
