Is Woodworking an expensive hobby?

Not really‚Äďa well-designed woodworking shop can cost up to $100,000 and the best woodworking companies charge hundreds of dollars a month for access to experienced woodworker experts.

But it’s not necessarily expensive at all. The woodworking software you use can help you save money as well.

Are woodworking tools costly?


You get what you pay for?

For example, I’ve used a lot of cutting instruments when making woodworking projects, which range from small, affordable hand planes to more expensive “milled” planes and tables.

What’s next after woodworking?

So, what do you want to take first when creating a home for yourself as a woodworker? Why not start by learning woodworking tools, then build on these skills?

When you start a small woodshop you’ll have a more accurate idea of your tool needs. After this you can move on to more complex projects and develop the skills needed to make the furniture you want, without the expense.

A couple of years ago my father was diagnosed with cancer. One month after being diagnosed, he was a no go for chemo and radiation therapy. It was a devastating blow for him. He was already going downhill, and the cancer had spread throughout the majority of his brain and spinal cord. He was in a lot of pain, and on top of that, his body was in so much pain that he couldn’t get out of bed. This is when my plan came about. I wanted to do something and help him out in any way possible.

He has lost more than just a part of himself, he has lost a lot. He wants to be a professional woodworker and I want to help him with that, with a plan. I’m here on Kickstarter to help raise money, that will go towards what we need to get it going. I am an amazing person, and this is a way I can help him out. I am a writer, and as a writer, I need to pay the bills for now. I can’t just take the next step and try to finish my first book for free. Instead, my goal is simply to get the first book out there, and to help help him out in any way possible
