  In High school I had two classes of wood-shop back to back. I learned all the basics, and loved using the turning lathe.
  Now, 35 years later, I just do small projects, like refinishing furniture occasionally, and plan to make a narrow curio box to show off my newly discovered ATC and inchies collection. There's some scrap wood under the house I am going to use.

Two years ago, I built a headboard, with a wooden frame, padded it, and covered it with leather. There was a six inch wide shelf across the top, and the front was padded with a futon pad, cut to fit, and doubled over, with a velvet covered finish. I am really proud of it. It was for a Queen size bed.
  I have never posted any of these projects on Craftster, but I suppose I could, even tho I moved and no longer have any of the furniture from that house. BTW... Almost all the furniture was a salvage job of one kind or another. I was also really proud of the two chairs I restored with a 3-layer paint effect. The type where you sand off  paint to expose wood, leave some, wax over it, and apply two more layers. They were first glossy black, then I exposed some wood, to be:  natural, black, green, and an antique glaze over all.
  I have never done any wood burning, with the exception of a torched effect on wood panels back in school. (Or carving)
  I also never got into toll painting.
BUT, I did build several cutting tables, over the years; and the best and smallest one was my first post on Craftster, in the Miscellaneous board.
Thanks for asking!

I am a scroll saw artisan.  I enjoy creating fretwork and silhouettes.  My passion at the present time is a variety of Puzzles, from childrens tray style puzzles to puzzimals and jigsaw puzzles. 

I think the forum needs a dedicated woodworking area.

 I agree! We definitely need a woodworking forum! And a leather crafts forum... just had to throw that in!

If laser etching and cutting on wood is part of woodworking. Then yes. There needs to be a woodworking forum.

I do general woodworking, crafting with wood and have just started working on a scroll saw.  A woodworking board would be great!

I've done some cabinetry, and having a set place to post projects would entice me to finish some. I also just got into wood carving, and would love to see what other people have done with that.

Whatever happened to the ongoing hoopla swaps?

Would love to see a woodworking board on here, YES!

I consider myself pretty well versed with most woodworking tools, bandsaws, tablesaws, scroll, many types of hand held saws, drill press, bench sanders, routers, etc all the stuff that makes awoodworking shop fun  Grin.
 I do decorative woodworking and incorporate painted designs/pictures some of these projects.  Have had some of my designs/projects published in the now defunct, Woodworking for Women, magazine.

I do a few of the usual kinds of woodworking: carving, furniture building, turning, general carpentry. I'm hoping to finally set up a pole-lathe and try turning green wood. I'd say on the whole my crafting is 30% wood, 30% fabric, 40% other materials.

I'm certainly in favour of there being a woodworking section here. I can't understand why there isn't already.

I've done a wee bit of woodworking - mostly in high school. I made a whale-shaped coat hanger, a small wall unit with 2 drawers, a jigsaw puzzle (quite literally!), a cutting board, and some woodburning. Last summer I sanded down and refinished my dining room table and chairs. Oh, I've demolished an old rotting wood bridge, does that count Tongue (j/k)?!
