Detailed Description

Made By Hand by Tom Fidgen - with DVD. Furniture Projects for the Unplugged Woodworker

When Tom Fidgen moved his shop from his place in the country to downtown in a big city (where there was "no shop space to speak of"), he left his power tools behind and said he would "build with my hands like my grandfathers did before me".

He spent the next year doing just that, all the while writing a book about woodworking using only hand tools. Made By Hand is that book, which also happens to include a 45-minute companion DVD that helps bring the book alive, even beyond the excellent photography and prose of the book itself.

He shares his personal experiences of learning and using tools, covering their history, technique and practical application, then sets about designing and building six projects: a cabinetmaker's tool chest, a dovetailed wall cabinet, a side table with tapered legs, a bookcase with mortise and tenon doors, and a modern take on a classic hunt board cabinet.

Made By Hand by Tom Figen inspires the reader to slow the pace of woodworking and life, and allow time to reap the rewards of honest work done using only your hands to power your tools.
