In woodworking circles, the name Frank Klausz practically is synonymous with no-fuss, tight-fitting hand-cut dovetails, and he's taught countless woodworkers to cut joints of all sorts by hand through his videos, seminars and magazine articles. He's one of the most recognized craftsmen of our age – and rightfully so.

At the age of 14, Frank entered the Hungarian trade school system, earned his journeyman certificate in 1959, and later became a master. He emigrated to the United States, and in 1972 opened Frank's Cabinet Shop in Pluckemin, N.J. – and Frank and his wife, Edith, still call New Jersey home.

Frank's Cabinet Shop specializes in fine furniture reproductions and custom architectural fixtures, and clients have included Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, the New Jersey State House, Ester Johnson of the Johnson & Johnson family – and too many others to count. Frank has taught woodworking throughout the United States and Canada, and has written numerous magazine articles on the craft. This will be his third appearance at Woodworking in America.
