The first one because of the exceptional quality of the work created by a man who works exclusively with hand tools. No electric gizmos involved, except perhaps electric lighting... If you like hand made things, do yourself a favour and go over there!
This man is Peter Follansbee and you can find his blog here.

The second blog I want to highlight belongs to Doug Stowe and in his words "is dedicated to sharing the concept that our hands are essential to learning- that we engage the world and its wonders, sensing and creating primarily through the agency of our hands. We abandon our children to education in boredom and intellectual escapism by failing to engage their hands in learning and making".
