The Unplugged Woodshop
by Tom Fidgen

The Unplugged Woodshop

Hand-Crafted Projects for the Home & Workshop (Hardcover)

Woodworker Tom Fidgen is very well known in the online woodworking community, and his first book, Made by Hand, was critically acclaimed. In his second book, Fidgen presents more hand-tool woodworking projects for the home and workshop. The projects have a distinctive retro look, recycling designs from our not-so-distant past. He has reconceived the classic library card catalog (converted to use for kitchen storage); a clever medicine chest does double duty as a four-bottle wine tote; and his gentleman’s valet is an elegant clothing stand with a profile that harks back in time. In the opening chapters, Fidgen discusses the benefits of working in an unplugged woodshop, considers the sources of design inspiration, offers advice on the critical importance of sharpening, and even explains how to make hand tools using only hand tools.

The Workshop
by Scott Gibson

The Workshop

Celebrating the Place Where Craftsmanship Begins

A workshop is much more than a physical place full of tools. It is the place where a woodworker imagines, designs, tries, fails and succeeds in making something beautiful out of wood. Some shops are used to earn a living, some to pass on the craft. In all shops new designs are forged, limits are tested, and art is created.

Author Scott Gibson takes you on a guided tour of over 30 workshops. You'll meet furniture makers, boat builders, turners, and others -- all of whom share a common love: creating in wood. Over 290 photos give you an inside look at these outstanding shops. You'll learn how they evolved and how they suit the individual needs of the woodworkers who own them.
