I think the combination of what you are wanting to do is relatively rare, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do it. Just happens that most people that are interested in hand tools to build furniture are interested in period furniture. I bet though that someone here can find you a link to someone doing similar to what you are looking for. I think though to expand your resources, what you’re probably going to have to do is take the skills you can learn from hand tool materials and adapt them to the plans or designs you see that are intended for power tools.
