THE HAND TOOL WOODWORKING APPRENTICESHIP

This first foundational video in the Mortise & Tenon Apprenticeship series serves as an overview for those interested in the hand-tool-only furniture making process. Come into the shop of Joshua Klein, editor of Mortise & Tenon Magazine, to absorb the woodworking methods he’s learned from examining countless pre-industrial originals. The evidence of process left behind as tool marks gives a beauty and authenticity that no machine can mimic.




In this video, Joshua sets out to unravel the unjustified mystique about hand tool woodworking.  After looking at the basic tool set and sharpening, Joshua walks through how he selects his lumber and processes it with hand tools. The heart of the video is the demonstration and explanation of the foundational furniture joinery. An introduction to using shellac and milk paint closes the tutorial. Throughout the video, Joshua busts the myth that working wood by hand is simply naïve anachronism. To the contrary, he’s discovered it to be a surprisingly efficient and viable option for the 21st-century woodworker.

Total run time: 136 minutes

We're always happy to pursue the possibility of offering a download, if there is enough folks to justify the work and expense of doing so.  I think if a lot of people people were sure they'd spring for the download version, we could make that a reality.

Click +1/Thumbs Up if you would fork over some extra for the download version.

Love Mortise & Tenon.  I've had a subscription since the start.  It's a great resource for hand tool woodworkers.
