I had always enjoyed working with wood. Back when I was younger, my dad taught me the basic woodworking essentials. My knowledge grew from there because I fell in love with the hobby.

As the years went by, I didn’t have time to spend on woodworking projects. My interest was renewed when I helped build a locker room for my son’s football team. I started with some of the basics. Soon I was helping cut, build, sand and apply finish and my love of woodworking was renewed.

I created this site to help others learn the woodworking essentials. Whether you need a refresher, or this is your first woodworking experience we have something for you. Home Woodworking Essentials is designed to be your guide to choosing the right tools and learning the proper techniques.Whether it is your first foray into woodworking or just a refresher, you will find something that helps.

It is my belief that if you are able to master these woodworking essentials, you will find this to be an enjoyable, relaxing and rewarding hobby. Not only that, but it will be something you can do with your own children. Those times spent in with my dad were some of the greatest memories I have. I hope that you too have the chance to pass these skills along.

Who knows, you may even move past the knowledge you gain here and make woodworking your profession or even a profitable hobby.

Check back often as we will update the site with all types of content. From tutorials on different techniques to product reviews. Whatever it is you need to learn, we hope to cover it. If there is something missing, let us know and we will try to get something posted to help.
