Made by Hand: Furniture Projects for the Unplugged Woodworker is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.

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.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good book I really enjoyed the book. its nice to find a woodworking book that doesn't require you to have a workshop filled with expensive power tools, this of course is not to say hand tools are cheap but the good ones will last a life time.
