Podcast about Jonathan Fisher

Joshua Klein and Mike Updegraff have just released a podcast that discusses the making of the new book “Hands Employed Aright” and how the life of craftsman Jonathan Fisher has informed and changed their own work.

You can check out the 33-minute podcast here.

Josh’s research into Fisher’s life has attracted a lot of interest among scholars and woodworkers who are fascinated by pre-industrial methods. Earlier this month, Josh presented some of his findings at Colonial Williamsburg’s “Working Wood in the 18th Century” seminar. And the book was also favorably reviewed in the latest issue of Fine Woodworking (a first for Lost Art Press).

It’s a beautifully written, photographed and designed book, and we’re thrilled that Joshua’s five years of hard work are paying off.

    One of the best books I’ve ever read on historical woodworking. Very well written, with respect for the subject, and great insight. Joshua also walks the walk and not just talk the walk by reproducing the pieces using the same techniques. Did not want to put the book down but needed to so I could digest what was written.
