In addition to all the great lesson and projects, the Apprentice videos have been a huge part of my learning process at The Hand Tool School.  Shannon's planing stop video turned on a light bulb for me and dramatically changed the way I think about milling.  It has improved my milling efficiency and enjoyment.

Technique Videos

As questions arise in our community that aren't covered by the many hours of preexisting videos, I create technique videos with topics chosen by the Apprenticeship community

Live Office Hours

An hour plus long broadcast to answer questions from Apprentices and to address more in detailed demonstrations.  Each broadcast will be recorded for replay and added to the archive of hundreds of hours of Live Sessions.

Apprentice Community

An exclusive community area where the student can blog about their accomplishments, ask questions, share triumphs, and work with their fellow apprentices.  It is here where most of the goal setting an accountability will happen.

Every Semester & Project

All the structured semester programs and the new ones I'm working on or haven't even dreamed up yet.  Its all access...so you get it all!


There's a lot of great content on the web, but what sets The Hand Tool School above the rest is the personal touch.  With quick responses via forum posts, emails, and even the occasional video to directly address student questions and problems, Shannon makes the learning process personal.  It's the closest thing you can get to private instruction in a digital format.
