I'd like to see a board for woodworking stuff, alot of woodworking doesn't fit into any of the other categories but it's something I know a number of people play with and is a popular enough activity that it could have it's own board like glass crafting does. 

I know woodworking tends to be more of a male craft, but I know tons of women that do it too (you know playing with lathes, scroll saws, power saws)  It'd be the perfect place to show off those playhouses and sandboxes that get crafted for the kiddos, and the niddy noddies and lazy kates that get made for the spinners, Just general wood crafting so that we can see all the faboulous things people do with boards on the board Wink

Woodworking is my craft of choice.  I've been after this idea for nearly two years.  I was told to sit down and shut up because "it ain't never gonna happen".  They claim that there are not enough woodcrafters on Craftster.  Look around, and you'll see lots of them.  They are all scattered in the miscellaneous board.

If you want to see what I've made in wood, look in the miscellaneous board, or go look in my profile.  There's lots.

If you want to further this cause, every time you see something made from wood, add a woodworking tag to it.  I think it's the only way it will ever get the attention of the powers that be.

This is another board I came in here to request  Grin

I think it would work quite well together with this request http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=39868.0 for a metalsmithing board.

Wood and metalwork sounds like a school class  Cheesy


Old post. Good idea!

I'd still like to see this happen.  I'd write a tutorial for power tools.  I'd even moderate it, if it came down to that.

I know there are lots of woodworkers, woodturners, woodburners, and woodcarvers on this website.  I've seen your work.

The first place I came to learn stuff about woodworking was here as it seems to be the place for all jewellery making... but naiively as it turns out - there's only "women's" jewellery crafts here. Guess I'd better stick to the "male" forums then... besides, with crafts, often what it takes inspiration and support and help to get someone into it - and "male" woodworking forums are full of lotsa-lotsa-tools-money, overly fancy terminology, and oneupmanship - not necessarily that conducive to the absolute noob, especially women.

Most woodworking websites are tailored to the seasoned woodworker.  They are not for anyone who wants to learn something new, or further your skills.  They are simply for bragging rights.

The thing about craftster that drew me in to begin with, was that there are seasoned crafters and newbies in just about every medium.  It's a place for learning and sharing.  But that does not apply to woodworking.  It is assumed that if you are a woodworker, you already know what you are doing.  This is not always the case. 

There are so many different aspects of woodworking that it's a field all by itself.  There's woodburning, woodcarving, woodturning, and general woodworking.  If you wanted to get real specific, even furniture making has its own subdivisions.  There are people who do nothing but chairs.  Others for whom twig furniture is their chosen specialty.  There are also folks out there who do nothing but outdoor art.  And there are others who  never make anything bigger than a breadbox.

If you want to know anything about woodworking, and you can't find it on this forum, PM me.  We'll start our own thread.
