There is no such thing as a ‘typical’ woodworking blogger. Some are older, others younger. Some love hand tools, others can’t get enough power.
One of the newest bloggers in the woodworking community is Robert Giovannetti a.k.a. The Tattooed Woodworker. Rob may appear radical, but his love for traditional hand tools comes to the fore in his entries and videos.
Unfortunately, because of his skin art, he has gotten a lot of anonymous flack from some readers who think he has no business writing a blog. It was so bad a week ago, he nearly pulled his blog off the web and sold his tools.
That would have certainly been a loss for all of us in the woodworking community.
Bloggers such as Rob, Marc Spagnuolo, Matt Vanderlist and scores of others put themselves out there for others to learn from. Folks who take of their time to help others learn the craft have earned my support and a great deal of respect.
