The long story short version is that you can definitely find something exciting to make if you look around. Woodworking is a means to an end, and it will serve you well as you create with wood.

Woodworking is Different to Everyone

woodworking is different for everyoneAnyone who makes something out of wood is within the woodworking realm. That can be someone who makes huge furniture pieces, or another who makes toothpicks.

For example, this wooden bead is a simple project, and a small portion of woodworking.

A jewelry maker or a bead maker is a woodworker, and these are the results of their labor.

Someone making beads from other materials is not a woodworker, but they are still a bead maker. Woodworking is different for everyone, and that’s why it attracts so many people. No matter what you are doing, you are working to turn wood into something better than it was before.

The pipe maker has a desire to create a tobacco pipe for themselves or for others, and they use wood to make that a reality. There are other things that pipes are made from, like metal or glass, but they do not have the traditional feeling and beauty that wood pipes have.

Though woodworking is a very wide field, it can also be narrow. The fact that there are several different disciplines using wood that comes from the same tree shows how interconnected woodworking really is.
