Tom Fidgen’s “The Unplugged Woodshop: Hand-Crafted Projects for the Home & Workshop”

A great gift idea for the woodworker who appreciates using handtools, especially one who steers clear of the din, dust and and danger of power tools, Tom Fidgen brings us The Unplugged Woodshop: Hand-Crafted Projects for the Home & Workshop.

Unplugged

Tom’s previous book, Made by Hand, Furniture Projects from the Unplugged Woodshop, was Popular Woodworking Books‘ best selling title in 2010 and I predict that The Unplugged Woodshop: Hand-Crafted Projects for the Home & Workshop will easily contend as another best seller. Tom has packed this book with useful how-to instructions that walk you all the way through a compelling variety of beautiful, useful things — from a sawyer’s bench to an architect’s table to a hand plane to a library card catalog — all using historic hand tools and age-old, tried and true techniques along with Tom’s latest tricks and tips. Treat yourself or someone you care about to the intimate pleasure of using hand tools with exquisite results. The journey is the destination and the journey need never end. Unplug!
