When someone calls themselves a woodworker they are most likely referencing their ability to produce a quality product – a ‘satisfaction’ is how they describe it. The term comes from craftsmen who had a passion for their craft and wanted to be recognized within the industry.

They also have the right to own their own business, which is a great thing for anyone that wants to start their own business. The main goal is the same as it was 200 years ago – to provide that quality to the people that work with you, whether you are the woodworker that sells and creates a new product or one that sells to the public. They are professionals that have a certain level of expertise, in their industry or skillet. If you are a woodworker then you are a product.

The person has been granted a high level of accreditation that they have completed over a number of courses, which will either show or can be shown some level of proficiency in their trade. Their credentials are more or less a test that is used to determine if they are in fact qualified. An example of that could be if someone meets the requirements for a SCA-LEC certification, they would be tested to see what level they are capable at – then the rest of the course would determine whether
