Woodworking is All That

The term “woodworking” is both specific and broad. Framing carpenters are certainly working with wood every day, and scroll saw experts are too. You get the picture — woodworking constitutes a great many possibilities. The feedback I received from our Weekly crowd about kits a couple of weeks ago spurred some thoughts on the subject. Readers indicated that kits can be an entry point into a new type of woodworking. And a recent survey we conducted indicates that 38 percent of those queried had used this pandemic period to learn something new about this broad craft. That got me wondering about what aspects of woodworking you are interested in learning. What are you hankering to take on next? Send in your thoughts and we will share what we can in the Feedback section.
