Tage Frid is known as the "Dean of American Woodworking." Over his 50-year career as a woodworker, educator, and author, he helped thousands learn woodworking. This video is an opportunity to visit the master in his shop and home and listen to him as he shares his wisdom.
In this rare documentary Frid shows you how to build several pieces and discusses how his philosophy of designing around construction informs his work. Frid also demonstrates such woodworking basics as sharpening a chisel and cabinet scraper as well as how to make multiple spline joints and cut half-blind dovetails. Two bonus segments on laminating in form to make salad servers and veneering a coffee table are also included.
"Frid has done more than any other woodworker I know to make the crafting of fine furniture practical, safe and reasonably expedient." Popular Woodworking
