What will you call a person who loves to do things manually rather than using any technology tools.

Literally, a 'hands-on' person. More correctly, a 'literally hands-on' person.
Well I would say "Craftsman" or " Crafter" . "Luddite" sounds rather offensively and doesn´t convey the message of dexterity in his hands ...
I like the term "maker", but I'm not sure that's quite what you want.
Handcrafter comes close. It means a person who does handicraft. It doesn't quite cover the person who avoids electric pencil sharpeners and uses grass shears to trim his lawn.
A Luddite is an anti-industrialist, and by extension a person who opposes advancements in mass production or opposes changes in technology. It is not so much a person who personally prefers to do all things manually.
Craftsman or artisan is a person who practises a skilled trade. The person's output is unlikely to be mass produced. But a craftsman or artisan might use advanced technology, or very little technology, or anything in between.
We may perhaps call them a dinosaur.
Noun dinosaur (plural dinosaurs)
3 (figuratively, colloquial) A person or organisation that is very old, has very old-fashioned views, or is not willing to change and adapt
You may want to call them a hedonistic artisan to reflect on their love of making things by hand.
I would probably call them a luddite
"The Luddites were a social movement of 19th-century English textile artisans who protested ... against the changes produced by the Industrial Revolution"- Wikipedia
It's not terribly complimentary though, so it depends how you intend to mean it.
I might call him a DIY kind of a person (a do-it-yourself kind of a person, see Wikipedia article), or say "he's into DIY".
