Give the Gift of Craftsmanship

We at Mortise & Tenon are passionate about inspiring and teaching people to work with their hands. If you know someone who wants to learn woodworking who is more interested in using handsaws than standing at a table saw and planing boards instead of sanding them, you’ve come to the right spot.

We are a small, independent company in Midcoast Maine that publishes a twice-per-year hefty “magazine” (more like a “journal”), instructional books, online courses, apparel, and woodworking merchandise. 

“[M&T is] a wonderful publication that succeeds so beautifully in documenting traditional furniture building and making it feel simultaneously timeless and meaningful in our modern day.” – George Sawyer, chairmaker


Not sure what to gift your loved one this year?

Our growing catalog can feel overwhelming to navigate, so the following is a quick guide to assist your gifting.

THE MAGAZINE is the core of our publishing:

$45 – A Yearly Subscription – Always the #1 choice for gift giving. (Their first issue will arrive in March.)

$24 – Our most recent issue or any back issue – For those new to M&T.

“I think this magazine should be compulsory reading for any serious hobbyist woodworker. . . . I can't recommend it highly enough.” – Chris Vesper, toolmaker 


$21-35 – Our best-selling how-to books by M&T founder Joshua Klein are a sure bet: Joined: A Bench Guide to Furniture Joinery, Worked: A Bench Guide to Hand-Tool Efficiency, or you can get both titles together as a discounted bundle.

“[Joined] might be the best book I've ever read on hand-tool joinery. Klein gets it done with exactly zero screwing around.” – Rex Krueger, woodworker


$19-25 – We offer a variety of online courses to assist people at all stages of their woodworking journey. 


$10+ – If you’re still unsure about the best choice for your loved one, you can’t go wrong with a gift card for any of our offerings.


If you have any questions or would like to learn more about us, feel free to drop us a note at Truly, it’s just the three of us (Joshua, Mike, and Grace), here to help our fellow woodworkers succeed in their passion.
