Mastering Hand Tools: Basic Skills for Balanced Woodworking with Chris Schwarz 2-DVD set

3 hours 41 minutes

Mastering Hand Tools is a 2 disc DVD set that will introduce you to the basic hand tool skills to turn you into a woodworker equally comfortable in either the powered or hand tool world — and offer the best results from each world. Host Christopher Schwarz starts off the video by asking the question, "Why use Hand Tools?" A fair question that he quickly answers by extolling the benefits of traditional woodworking tools — blended with some of the niceties of power tools. Those benefits include a healthier work environment, fewer jigs and test cuts, and accuracy to within .001". Watch along as Chris offers advice on selecting hand tools, shares tips for set-up and puts the tools to work.

Learn About:

  • Choosing and using marking knives and gauges and cutting gauges
  • Sharpening and using Jack planes and Smoothing planes
  • Selecting and using Handsaws and Rasps
  • The benefits of Braces and Hand Drills
  • and more about Chisels, Mallets, Scrapers and Router Planes
