Credit in the Straight World: A Review in Make Magazine


Stuart Deutsch wrote a short review of “The Anarchist’s Tool Chest” for the August/September 2014 issue of Make magazine, which is usually about building projects involving high technology.

In the review, Deutsch writes:

“The Anarchist’s Tool Chest” is not your average beginner’s book, and its author is not your average seasoned woodworker…. Schwarz’s writing style is unlike what you’ll find in any other woodworking reference. He speaks to you in a friendly and frank nature. It’s as if this book is his diary or a long correspondence to a personal friend.

While I don’t always agree with Schwarz’s approach, I feel this book should be standard reading for anyone who hopes to one day to call themselves a woodworker.

    it’s been so long ago that I red the “Anarchists Tool Chest” that my cover has turned yellow 😉
    I have almost forgotten about the skillful way the words where crafted, this article makes me want to read it all over again to refresh my memory.

    But it is true that Christopher is almost always friendly and always frank, and funny, let’s not forget – funny.
