Chris Schwarz is an active woodworker, teacher, writer, and hand tool enthusiast. He built his first workbench at the age of eight, and spent summers helping his father build two houses on their family farm in Arkansas, using mostly hand tools.
Formerly the editor of Popular Woodworking Magazine, Chris continues to share his passion for hand tool woodworking through his publishing company, Lost Art Press. By unearthing the lost art of hand skills, he seeks to help the modern woodworker restore the balance between hand and machine work to produce furniture that is crisp, well proportioned and quickly made.
