The Art And Craft Of Woodworking

In our age of inexpensive snap-together or assemble-yourself furniture and high-tech 3D printing, you might wonder why anyone would spend the time and effort to make furniture by hand. But woodworking is still very much alive, with more than five million professional and hobbyist woodworkers in America.

Joining us for a look at the art and craft of woodworking are Popular Woodworking Editor and Content Director Megan Fitzpatrick; Popular Woodworking Contributing Editor and Founder of Lost Art Press,Christopher Schwarz, and BrownellFurniture Owner Andy Brownell.
