Many have found it to be a rewarding hobby with many great projects and opportunities. However, many who join this craft will never be “in” woodworking and won’t have the time nor motivation to pursue it and it is unlikely to make them any more happy than if they were to work in a shop/shop-like environment. So, who should join – and where should they live?
It will be easy to convince a potential new member that woodworking is not for them – and to leave without any discussion. This is how they will be disappointed.
The fact of the matter is that woodworking is a fantastic career choice and there are many other careers where you would have been far better off if you had just worked in a shop/shop-like environment.
When it comes to choosing a career you will have to choose your career goals carefully, and you will need a solid foundation with which to work towards those goals.
What are some other careers you would like to get in (and work)?

AMY GOODMAN: We turn now to Canada’s new federal budget, the first for Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government. It proposes boosting funding for the military, expanding immigration to new sectors and doubling the number of immigration visa holders in the country. Its first two pieces of new legislation also have big implications for climate change efforts, the Paris climate agreement. On Tuesday, the Government of Canada announced new legislation that would establish a national carbon price, and the plan puts Canada’s energy sector and climate change goals in the hands of the provinces. This is National News Editor Peter Mansbridge.
PETER MANNING BRIDGE: Prime minister, in the coming months, we will be announcing new measures and changes to our environmental laws to deal with climate change. This is a new regime. It’s a federal carbon pricing regime. And it will set a federal target set at $50 per tonne of CO 2 over the next five years.
AMY GOODMAN: That’s National News Editor Peter Mansbridge, reporting from Montreal. And we have a clip from our Democracy Now!
