Wood working tips can be a useful source of information for all wood workers.
We all get stuck on projects at one time or another. Having a place to go to get the techniques used in
professional woodworking, can both inspire and guide you to take your woodworking to the next
Woodworking mistakes are one of the best ways of learning, and should be viewed
so. Getting upset is normal, but not productive. Better to spend a minute figuring out what went wrong, and
how to fix it. It is a common occurance in all wood shops, but fortunately it
can lead you to much knowledge that otherwise may never have been learned.
In our everyday woodworking, even as "professionals", we still screw up on a
reguler basis, and after cursing ourselves, we look for a solution that will be least painful from a
financial as well as a time standpoint. New techniques are learned on a regular basis due to this. This
doesn't mean we're happy about the mistake, but we do try to learn from them, and keep track of both the
cause and solution.
We often ask fellow workers for advice on how to handle certain situations.
It's part of the learning process. Hopefully, we will never be too confident in our skills, to resist asking
for new ideas, methods or help.
Many of our woodworking tips and articles include photos and illustrations of
projects being built in our shop. All come from hands on experience in woodworking. If upon reading any of
the articles, you have questions, please, by all means email us. We will be happy to respond with as much
detail as we can.
We have included this
woodworking forum for all woodworkers. We hope to teach and inspire each other to reach that next
level in their woodworking projects. Maybe even help you avoid some of the mistakes we have made. This forum
is the best out there! Called Lumberjocks, you'll never find a more family oriented group of people, that
offer complete support and information, when needed. A great group of people, I am proud to be associated
