Shannon Rogers is the online host of Renaissancewoodworker.com, which started a few years ago as an attempt to chronicle his time in his wood shop. The site has grown quite a bit since then, and Shannon’s time is now spent on the Hand Tool School, an online woodworking school offering courses on teaching woodworkers how to unplug in their shop. So it was natural that Jim Tolpin’s newest book, ‘The New Traditional Woodworker’, would catch Shannon’s attention. Tolpin takes his readers into the mindset of working unplugged, and it turns out that he and Shannon are very like-minded in their approach. Take a couple of minutes to visit Shannon’s web site and see what his thoughts are on Jim’s new book, and how it meshes with his teaching.
