Woodworking is a craft that is non-exclusive, and inclusive; almost everyone can do it!

Carpentry has a great breadth – from Birdhouses and signs to elaborate carvings, models, Home repairs and functional cabinets. Carpentry also is a means to acquire tools, videos, books, and friends who share their love of the craft and knowledge of how to make objects out of wood.
- Carpentry also brings together metal working (signs, hooks, table legs, hinges)
- Painting – finishes, stains, decals, more
- Repair work and upgrades
- Reading and how to books
And much more!

The best way to get started is to Build, fix, or plan a project. Pinterest has tons of ideas, if you need inspiration.
Based on what you want to build, you will need to get some tools.
