I shaved a few cents off of my electric bill by using only hand tools to build this cherry dovetail box to hold my chisels. It only took me about ten times longer to make. Worth it!

I don’t think a woodworker is defined by whether they use only hand tools, some power tools, or even a CNC to build their projects, but I do think that every woodworker should have at least some hand tool experience. It’s a little slower, but if done properly it’s more precise, and the satisfaction you get from building something the same way it would have been built 200 years ago is immense.
