I'm new here, someone on a non-craft related forum recommended craftster to me.

Seems to be heavily oriented toward sewing, knitting, and crocheting... nothing wrong there (I've been sewing since I was a 12-yo boy), but I didn't see any topics for the crafts of woodworking or metalworking. That may not be enough to open a woodworking subforum, but since I started teaching myself woodworking in 2003, I've learned a few hints & kinks which turned out pretty useful for making the handy wooden small boxes I specialize in. These kinds of things just aren't made in the USA anymore, but I make mine right here in Los Angeles, from old wooden pallets or discarded hardwood lumber.

I've tried selling on Etsy---first just the iPhone boxes, then everything else (I posted 2 pics here of my work)---but I get the feeling there's just some trick to advertising that eludes me.

Anyhow, maybe some of you who are reading this post have been wanting to learn how to make that sewing notions box you've always wanted without going broke... I'll be more than happy to share what I've learned.

Hi there! Welcome to Craftster We do have woodworkers here, but as of right now we don't have a dedicated woodworking board. We'd love to see your work! You've found the right category to post in, Miscellaneous.

Also, you can add your voice to the others that would like to see a woodworking board.

Hi, there!  I bet lots of people around here would absolutely LOVE a step by step tutorial on some basic woodworking techniques.  (In fact, my husband would probably make an account just for that!)  We're currently working on an updated tutorial list for this board, and new additions are always welcome!
