I have always been interested in how things work and in making things with my hands. There’s just something extremely satisfying about building a tangible, useful item with your own two hands. Woodworking is something that I’m very passionate about. But it’s not always been that way. I got “hooked” on woodworking a little over 10 years ago. This was, by the way, a long time after I was out of school, so I couldn’t go back and take a shop class. Kids now are lucky to even have the opportunity to take shop in high school because it’s been taken out of most school systems. Kids that are homeschooled have more flexibility when it comes to choosing what classes to teach, but where do they go to find woodworking instruction? I had no way of learning except through trial and error and books, lots of books. I love getting into a subject and finding out all I can about it, and woodworking was no exception. And books were the only place I could find information on woodworking. This was a very isolated way to learn. At times I wish that I had a place to go for information where I could share ideas with other woodworkers and find answers to questions I had. Also, it would have been nice to have a place to find inspiration from other woodworkers by seeing the projects they were working on and to learn more about how they work wood. Woodworkers Resource was born around our kitchen table in November of 2005 to fulfill those needs.
