I'm very pleased to announce my new online video course at Popular Woodworking University, the new site for online classes from Popular Woodworking Magazine: Intro To Hand Tools!
This is for anyone with any level of interest in hand tools, from incorporating a few hand skills into a power tool shop, to doing it all with hand tools. No experience or background knowledge required. Wish you could learn to do the things you see here? This will get you going.
And you can do it with a space as small as 4'x6'. It doesn't even have to be permanent; setup a folding workbench, fold it up and put it away when you're done.
The course covers all the basics, from sharpening to rough stock preparation of raw lumber to fine joinery. This will also prepare you for more advanced classes from any of the fine woodworking schools anywhere around the world. You'll have the confidence of knowing you can make your tools sing.

These are traditional techniques handed down across generations. I stand on the shoulders of giants, a steward of the craft. Many of the participants here have helped me build my skills. I share their passion and am extremely grateful for their generosity in passing on their knowledge.
Discuss hand tools here, its quieter and less dusty than the other sections.
