Who Are Woodworkers?

There used to be two stereotypes of woodworkers. The irritable store educator that educated a really dull course to youngsters that really did not want to exist, and the retired grandpa who puttered around in his garage with a great deal of time to build an occasional birdhouse.

Thankfully, those stereotypes are no longer true. There is even more diversity in woodworking now than ever before, thanks to on-line communities as well as the price of devices and also materials.

In the past 10 years there has been a significant surge in two groups of people making woodworking a leisure activity. Initially, females. It wasn’t that long ago when a female woodworker was unusual. Today, females woodworkers are typical. There is nothing concerning woodworking that anybody can’t do.
