oodworking is a wonderful pursuit, providing immense benefits to the people taking part – exciting, stimulating and satisfying on so many levels.
♦ Exciting — Intellectual stimulation is attained while working through a well documented woodworking project plan and creating a beautiful and/or productive object through your own efforts.
♦ Sensory stimulation occurs when the woodworker is surrounded by the beautiful aromas of freshly worked wood — whether being sawn, planed or drilled, and can be likened to the effects of the seductive aroma of freshly brewed coffee on a coffee addict (count me in!).
♦ Satisfaction in creating your woodworking project and seeing it be successfully completed is the absolute best reward!
♦ Physical activity is naturally required in order to create any woodworking project and, (whilst this may not be activity on an Olympic scale), is a benefit and a reward in itself.
♦ Whilst the smell of freshly worked wood has to be experienced first-hand (you have to be there!), we will present many of the visual joys here in sharing “Bits & Pieces”, along with selected videos, (examples below), representing desirable and useful woodworking projects.
