In this episode of 360 with 360WoodWorking, we spend time with the owner of The Northwest Woodworking Studio and author, Gary Rogowski. Gary shares some of the fascinating stories from his new book, “Handmade, Creative Focus in the Age of Distraction” (Linden Publishing, Inc.). Plus, you’ll hear what he feels is the most vital woodworking machine, especially for a West-Coast woodworker. And he shares his thoughts about the importance to all of hand work.
Join 360 Woodworking every Thursday for a lively discussion on everything from tools to techniques to wood selection (and more). Glen talks with various guests about all things woodworking and some things that are slightly off topic. But the conversation is always information packed and lots of fun.

Began With A Handplane
Gary Rogowski, author of “The Complete Illustrated Guide to Joinery” (Taunton Press) and “Router Joinery (Taunton Press), has been woodworking for many years – he’s hesitant to admit it’s been 50 years in total. In his new book he talks about woodworking and about how he came to be a woodworker. But the book is so much more. In it he shares events he has experienced and how those times shaped his career. As we move farther into the conversation, the discussion focuses around the value of hand work and why today’s maker spaces may be missing the mark.
