Carving wood

Woodworking is a skill that can be mastered by almost anyone, and can be used in home improvements to increase the value of the property.

Being a productive craft that involves cutting the wood, shaping it and of course, joining the wood to create decorative and other useful things, woodworking can produce some really cool stuff for your home using only wood, your hands, a few tools and your brain.

If you plan to sell your home or you simply want to live in a more beautiful place, you can start by improving the interior of your home using wood and your skill to make it look wonderful.

How to Start with Woodworking?

Today we have a lot of diversity in woodworking due to the presence of the online communities, the affordability of the tools and materials used.

Nowadays, we see a lot of women turning woodworking into a hobby, they start by setting up a shop and start working the wood to become something very nice and useful.

Women woodworkers are pretty common today because this is a skill that can be mastered by any person who is a bit introverted and loves taking tasks from start to finish.

Millennials (people in their 20s and 30s), are another category that seem to have a great interest in woodworking.

Young people usually having an office job, feel the need to make things with their own hands, and they are ready to spend the weekends just to learn this craft, because this way they can become productive even in the free days when they are away from their computers.

What is a Woodworker?

A woodworker can be defined as a maker who’s mostly interested in learning and refining the craft of creating things out of wood.

Wood is an affordable and timeless material that is easy to work with.

Types of Woodworking

There are a few different ways people approach this craft.

Hand tool woodworking had a revival in the 2000s, and today is more popular than ever because many woodworkers choose to use classical tools and methods to build different things.

Hand saws, scrapers, chisels and planes are preferred over anything else that plugs into a wall socket.

However, about 90% of the woodworkers today are using power tools such as: miter saws, jigsaws, drills, table saws, sanders, etc., to save some time.

Cutting a board on a table saw doesn’t take anywhere near the skill and finesse of using a handsaw, and also takes only a fraction of time, which means that by using power tools, the woodworker can improve its productivity.

On, I found a nice list of power tools for woodworkers that includes: jigsaws, miter saws, table saws, etc.

A woodworker can learn pretty quickly how to use the power tools to finish the work faster, but the biggest drawback to using power tools is that they have the potential to cause serious injuries if the woodworker is not familiarized with the safety procedures.


Using woodwork to improve the interior of your home and yard, will definitely change how they look, and the value of your house will increase right away because woodwork is something unique that comes from the depths of your soul.
