Made by Hand - A Beginners Guide to Hand Tool Essentials

A first look at the intro to the DVD I shot. The DVD, Made by Hand, A Beginners Guide to Handtool Essentials will be included for free with each book purchased. I wrote the tune specifiaclly for the intro segment and thought I'd share it here.

'working wood'

finger joint and dovetail went out walkin' through the wood...
cursing all the alders!

"ain't no crows feet over here boys..."

plane the grain through tapered flame
cathedrals in the aspen

working wood like joseph could, communion in the end grain chamfer down...

unplugg the drill and wrap your hand around the word of working man
'round the word of working man...


  1. Love the song, Tom. Is there a release date for the book? Are you taking orders?

    Cheers --- Larry

  2. Thanks Larry,
    The book will be released in December...I'm not sure if I'll be able to take orders directly yet or not? When we get closer to the release date I'll let everyone know the details.
    Thanks again and happy wood shavings!

  3. Tom,

    Looks like things are coming together well!

    Can't wait to pick up your book!
