AUTHOR: Doug Stowe began his woodworking career in 1976 and was reminded of the importance of hands-on learning by teaching his own daughter in the wood shop. In 2001 he launched the Wisdom of the Hands Program at the Clear Spring School to prove the value of hands-on learning in a school wood shop. He is the author of 13 other woodworking books, over 100 articles in woodworking magazines and educational journals, and publishes a blog dedicated to promoting the value of hands-on learning, Wisdomofhands.blogspot.com. The son of a kindergarten teacher, Stowe has become a respected authority on learning for all ages. In addition to teaching at the Clear Spring School, Stowe teaches adults the fine art of woodworking at schools and clubs throughout the United States.
