Everyone knows that woodworkers are the cream of the crop; that woodworkers use their hands and stretch their creativity to design new and beautiful objects that serve virtually every every purpose under the sun.
Over the 45,000 years that people have been woodworking, wood has protected us, sheltered us – it’s carried water from the well, stored our precious cargo, framed pictures of our dogs and cradled our babes. Wood allows us to sit at the table for dinner and it complements our personal flare.
Wood does it all, but what does a woodworker do? Who are the cream of the crop and what does working wood tell us about those who do it?
