Introduction to Woodworking Tips for Women


Why a Woodworking Blog for Women? Good question! In a nutshell, I want to establish a community of women wanting to learn; try new tools and techniques, share experiences, successes and failures and support one another while developing their overall skills as woodworkers.


I have really enjoyed learning to make furniture and turning bowls. The sense of accomplishment cannot be matched by anything else I do. I only got started about ten years ago, when I was in my late thirties. Whenever I mention this hobby to women I meet I usually get the same response. First they are surprised and then envious. I cannot tell you how many women have told me they have always wanted to learn to do woodworking, use power tools or just do basic repairs around the house.


Woodworking tips for women is a site for women where no question is too simple and no project is unworthy of sharing. What could be more fun than collecting information and writing about different aspects of woodworking? Most importantly in sharing our successes and failures we learn from one another. I will not have all the answers for all the questions that may be posted here, but the community of women will certainly provide their own answers.


I will share projects, resources and products along the way that will educate, possibly entertain and certainly allow for discussion and learning. I hope that you all will do the same and we can build a community together of woodworking women. I look forward to growing as a woodworker with all of you.
