Working with your hands in creating fine furniture is not a thing of the past. The old adage of “what you put into your work, is what you get out of it”, still holds true today. Rob Cosman is the epitome of this statement. Teaching handcut joinery is a small yet essential part of woodworking when using dovetail construction. Experience is the other piece that comes in time. When you first start in any venue of woodworking, you sometimes need an expert to help you along. Rob Cosman, Your Hand Tool Coach has been inspiring new and experienced woodworkers with fine woodworking techniques for many years. His insight, wisdom and patience goes beyond perfection. If you have attended any of his classes, shows, or workshops, you know what I am talking about. He captures the audience right from the start as he really gets into what he does best… sharing and teaching.
This is the “J” Waggoner woodworking family of Frankfort, Indiana. Why the “J”, you might ask? Well the six “J’s”, left to right are, Jalen (12) , Julie (Mom), Jeff (Dad), Jordan & Janae (17 year old twins), and bottom center is 9 year old Jaida. This is certainly a tribute to “the family that prays together, stays together”, although Jeff likes to say,”the family that woodworks together, makes a lot of firewood together!”

Frank wins the competition in what appears to be approximately 2 minutes and 35 seconds.
