Tage Frid

Tage Frid

Tage Frid (1915 – 2004) was an influential Danish-born woodworker who immigrated to the USA in 1948. He was a professor of Woodworking and Furniture Design at the Rhode Island School of Design from 1962 to 1985, and an editor of "Fine Woodworking" magazine from its inception in 1975 to his death.

When teaching, he emphasized a craftsman's need to learn all the available tools and methods one could use to complete a given task. Thus, the person can work in any shop situation and produce the same quality.


Frid is best known for his three-volume work, "Tage Frid Teaches Woodworking". Rather confusingly, later editions of this are published as the first two volumes in one, the third still separate:
