“Amid the current flurry of excellent books on hand tool woodworking, it is hard to say that one or the other stands out from the rest. And yet, as I see it, this one by Canadian woodworker Tom Fidgen does. The Unplugged Woodshop is a stimulating source of ideas and techniques that will help any woodworker build her or his hand tool skills, all the while creating beautiful and useful projects for the home and woodshop.
The Unplugged Woodshop is a great resource and learning opportunity for any woodworker who is beginning or continuing the hand tool journey. More advanced hand tool woodworkers will find the project ideas stimulating and educational. And all woodworkers will find this book to be a fun read.”
