Chris Schwarz Blog

Contributing editor Christopher Schwarz is a long-time amateur woodworker and professional journalist. He built his first workbench at age 8 and spent weekends helping his father build two houses on the family’s farm outside Hackett, Ark.— using mostly hand tools. Despite his early experience on the farm, Chris remains a hand-tool enthusiast.

Chris’s blog focuses mostly on hand tools and hand work. Chris also writes short tool reviews, book reviews and generally gets the inside scoop on new hand tool introductions before other blogs.

Arts & Mysteries with Adam Cherubini

Arts & Mysteries is one of our most-read columns in Popular Woodworking Magazine. Whether you sympathize with Adam Cherubini’s approach to working wood entirely with hand tools or think he’s simply a glutton for punishment, I think we all can agree on one thing: Adam’s column is never boring.

Tweaking Greene & Greene

We had Darrell Peart in our shop a few weeks back to shoot a video, and though I was planning to write about it once the DVD was available, I certainly can’t describe it better than Darrell! (Though I will say what an honor and pleasure it was to have him visiting us for...

Senco Nailed It.

Last month the entire staff of Popular Woodworking Magazine (PWM) trekked off to Senco‘s manufacturing facility to take a tour with four of the five grand prize winners from our Senco Event held in the PWM shop in the Spring. The guy who missed the tour gave some lame excuse about his wife having a baby....

Fred West Commemorative Tool Chest Giveaway

But if you’re a maker of high-quality hand tools, there’s little doubt you had the pleasure of knowing Fred. Fred was...

Advertisements in Woodworking Magazines

While building the new American Woodworker Magazine Compilation disk (you can get it as a download, too), I was asked to check the issue PDFs as they came in. I checked every page in all the issues, one at a time. Many of the articles were immediately pulled out for my personal use (I...

The Epicenter of Wood – Cincinnati, Aug. 23

Without exaggeration, I have at least 10 blog entries I need to post. What with my trip to England, some new Lost Art Press products and a short journey to Charleston, S.C., I have a lot to tell you about. But before I launch into any of that, this is a news item. On...

Campaign Furniture in Charleston, S.C.

Charleston, S.C., has always been an excellent place to study British furniture for a lot less money than a plane ticket to Heathrow. Today I spent a few hours stomping up and down King Street recording some very rare and nice examples of campaign furniture. The first stop was Golden & Associates Antiques. Andy...

The Lee Valley Tools Collection

Last week, I took a quick trip to Ottawa to visit Lee Valley’s headquarters for a press event – and gosh do I wish I could spread the news, but I can’t…yet. There will be a couple of “reveals” in the near future for the company, the first at the 2014 International Woodworking Fair...

Woodworking in America Speakers – Drew Langsner

Plus, he’s had articles published in many magazines and has authored a number of books, including The Chairmaker’s Workshop (Lark Books), 1995 Green Woodworking –...
