Welcome to Get Woodworking Week 2013. For the next seven days, I and many other woodworking bloggers are going to focus on writing articles and producing videos to encourage new woodworkers to stop thinking about woodworking and give it a try themselves.
And, it’s also only appropriate that we kick this week off on Super Bowl Sunday. So, if you are ready to tackle this week’s poll, let’s break the huddle and line up for the next play!
Regardless of what kind of hobby you follow, you have to identify a place where you can do what you do. If you like to paint, a nice sunny corner of the house is perfect. Want to become a home chef? A kitchen is pretty important. Bird watching? You have to get outside to go where they live.
And, when it comes to woodworking, you need to identify a place to build projects, store your tools and contain the sawdust, chips and shavings the hobby invariably produces. Where that is can be different based on what your living arrangements are. Basements, garages and separate buildings on your property are common choices, but attics, spare bedroom and even rented spaces house shops. This week, tell us where your workshop is.. or you would like to have it!
Oh, and all week, I will be linking to great articles written by other woodworking bloggers. Here’s today’s haul from around the web:
- Ralph Bagnall – Cash From Craft: What I like to build and why
- Popular Woodworking: A trio of common beginner questions (& answers)
- Marilyn Guthrie – She Works Wood: Get woodworking … women!

I just made it under the wire for a Sunday entry for Get Woodworking Week…at least out here in the Mountain Time Zone!
We’re just coming off the Woodworking Show this weekend in Denver, so I’m good and inspired!
The MWA interviews with Jim Heavey and Andy Chidwick made for some nice additions to my entry since I just spent several hours with both of those guys over the weekend.
I placed my woodshop in the basement where my obsolete B&W photography darkroom is located. The two seem to work together very well. Just a little dusting whenever I want to use the enlarger, etc.
