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 DVD is an opportunity to visit the master in his shop and home and listen to him as he shares his wisdom.

Never before released in its entirely (a short segment was released in VHS as "Handcut Dovetails"), this documentary shows Frid as he builds several pieces and discusses how his philosophy of designing around construction plays into his work. Find 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.
