Woodworking
Written by Catherine Davis   

WoodworkingWoodworking is a fulfilling and constructive hobby, and with a little practice and patience almost anyone can become proficient. A natural material, wood has beauty, strength and variety, and can be very satisfying to work with.

Woodworking encompasses a range of crafts including carpentry, joinery, turning, carving and marquetry. Once you master woodworking basics and get the feel for different tools and techniques, you can produce pieces that are decorative, durable, useful and unique.

Skills can be acquired with a relatively small set of hand tools – perhaps with the assistance of a woodworking course or evening class.

Depending on the size and scale of your woodworking project, you might use a spare room, garage or shed as a work space, or have timber prepared to your specifications by a local wood machinist or joinery firm.

The use of caustic or flammable finishes and power tools is potentially hazardous. In the interests of health and safety, ensure that the woodworking area is well ventilated with a dust extractor, wear protective clothing and keep a first aid kit handy.
