Feeding the Soul


The founders of Lost Art Press – Lucy May, Christopher Schwarz and John Hoffman – are trying to restore the balance between hand and machine work by unearthing the lost art of hand skills and explaining how they can be integrated with the machinery in the modern shop to help produce furniture that is crisp, well-proportioned, stout and quickly made.  They do this with  the publication of fine books on the craft of woodworking and through a blog which covers everything from techniques to rising stars in the field.

Christopher Schwarz is the former editor of Popular Woodworking Magazine , where he worked between 1996 and 2011. He is now a contributing editor to that magazine, maintains a popular blog through their website and has produced many instructional online videos and DVDs.  In addition to authoring the successful The Anarchists Toolchest, published by Lost Art Press, he also serves as a contributing editor to The Fine Tool Journal and has produced several DVDs in conjunction with Lie-Nielsen Toolworks and on traditional skills.

This week, my husband, Tim is spending the week with Christopher Schwarz at the Mark Adams School of Woodworking.  He is learning the techniques of using hand tools as he builds a 17th century French inspired workbench.  He is having the time of his life.  I added this post to stress the importance of being yourself!  Do things that you enjoy!  Take time to smell the roses!  Remember, doing to please others only leads to heart disease!  By the way, rugged with hand tools is the new sexy!!!
