What sort of training do I need to be a woodworker? What sort of equipment am I required to procure so that I can go about making my own wood? How do I start making my own wood? Are there any rules or regulations I need to follow to be a working member of society? These are important questions. Here are some of the questions that you have probably never considered asking, but they’ve all been considered to some degree in the past.
The answers to these questions can be important to you. They guide you. They might even be the turning point that gives you an idea about what kind of person you want to be.
To answer the questions, I took the time to consult with someone who was an experienced wood worker. This one did a great job. I found out a number of important and interesting things about the craft as well as how it can help you get into the wood shop in the first place. I believe this person is the expert in this thread.
He/she is called the Wood Worker’s Apprentice (WWA). (If you are unsure of someone’s credentials, search for the name of someone with an “x”)
Let’s look at some of the questions that a WWA may ask:
Are you proficient with a workstations, tools, and equipment such as lathe, sander, and saw? If yes, where are you at with your practice?
Do you know the basics of cutting timber and/or plywood?
Is your wood shop clean?
Does your clientele range from casual to professional?
Do you sell finished products as individual pieces or do you offer to do it all for them in a complete set? (This is a great question! How do you get the client to buy it all or have you developed a service that they may not ask for?)
Do you work in your own shop?
How do you find clients for your work? Do you get customers through referrals or simply through word of mouth? Does your business have a following or does it remain in the basement? Are there any limitations to this?
Does that make sense? Please feel free to comment below!
If you can answer a question above that has not been seen in a long time, you have a strong chance of becoming a WWA.
(If no one can answer or point you in the right direction, it might be a great idea to ask someone who can.)
