News and Events - Brand New Website from Tom Fidgen

Friday 3 October 2014

www.woodworkersinstitute.com

Just launched is Tom Fidgen's new membership website, An Unplugged Life, which is designed to inspire you to get offline, slow down, and work smarter with your hands and heart.

Tom tells us that this concept has been growing for the past few years and he decided it was high time to make it a reality.

As he says: "Every week, I receive dozens of emails from people around the planet, asking specific questions about my creative process, wood working techniques, custom furniture options and ideas, as well as my personal opinions about specific hand tools and manufacturers."

Tom's blog welcomes tens of thousands of visitors each and every month, from 146 countries worldwide. Members of the site will not only learn how Tom does the work he does, but more importantly, he will teach you why; this is what makes an unplugged life unique.

Just some of the things you'll learn by becoming a member:

1. The fundamental skills of hand tools; from the essentials to the set-ups, practice techniques and then master them.

2. The truth about sharpening- from the angles to the jigs and all of the folklore, theory and snake oil that goes along with them.

3. Wood selection, where to get it, what to look for, how to buy it and how to dry it

4. How to dimension rough lumber and how to finish it so it lasts for generations.

Membership packages:

One month: $20 (£12.53)

One year: $200 (£125.30)
