I gasped a little bit this evening when I opened the latest issue of Fine Woodworking magazine and saw a full-page review of Joshua Klein’s “Hands Employed Aright.” The review is on page 20 of the February 2019 issue and is quite favorable.
The review is well-deserved. Joshua poured his heart into the project, and the book required many years of research, photography and writing.
Thanks to Barry Dima, the author of the review, and Josh.

Can’t wait to see my copy of the magazine, not to mention read Klein’s book, which is still in its original packing, waiting in the LAP section of the bookcase. Gotta confess I’m going to dive into Mr. Becksvoort’s first, purely for reasons of familiarity. Thank you for enriching the lives of so many with these and your other books.
That’s our fault. We made too many books this year. We’ll dial it back in 2019.
No no no, keep it up! 😀
I think this is the first time I’ve ever seen The Magazine That Shall Not Be Named spewed forth by Chris’s fingers!
Ha! It would be easy to think that. But a search of our blog will say otherwise….
I stand corrected! Looks like the average is about one mention per year. 😉
When one door closes…
Glad to hear about the Review! I’ve read my copy and am enjoying going back to certain parts and appreciating even more. I wish I could have sung Joshua’s praises…I visited Jonathan Fisher’s house in Blue Hill last spring around the time of the Lie Nielsen Open House. Witnessed, first hand, the raw elements Joshua had to refine for consumption and was amazed. Fisher was an amazing person and certainly a treasure that would have been lost if not for the book. I believe ‘Inspiration’ is the most apparent value for me and I’ve never known it to be so eloquently delivered.
Yes , this book is awesome! Exceeding my expectations daily for the past two weeks 🙂
You need another beer my friend.
