“Woodworking matters. It’s more than a pastime or hobby being a woodworker means that you know the satisfaction and pride that comes from using your hands and mind to build beautiful, functional objects. Woodworking gives us a place where we can slow down, pay attention, and take the time to do things right.” –
Aime Ontario Fraser
