120 People Who Took Woodworking To Another Level And Shared The Results In This Online Group (New Pics)

While woodworking is not the easiest or cheapest hobby out there, it’s surprisingly gratifying and fulfilling. Many are starting to take it up as a way to reconnect with themselves, put their hands to work and create something tangible along the way. Being able to take a meaningless piece of wood and turn it into something beautiful is a perfect combination of skill, creativity and patience.

Just take a look at the subreddit called r/Woodworking. With over 3.5M members, it’s a home “for furniture, toys, tools, wood, glue, and anything else that has to do with woodworking as a hobby or profession.”
