Made By Hand
Furniture Projects From The Unplugged Woodshop

Tom Fidgen

Fidgen gives the traditional woodworking user an opportunity for a more satisfying relationship with the wood and the creative woodworking process by being quieter, cleaner and maybe even a little spiritual. It's no surprise 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.


The six projects (including a cabinetmaker's tool chest and a dovetailed wall cabinet) along with the companion DVD offer excellent views of the hand tools techniques and the critical body positioning necessary to get the best use out of the tools.
