Fair Woodworking

March 7, 2014

My thought for the day.

Filed under: Fair Woodworking & Hand Tool Blog,Skill development — fairwoodworking @ 9:03 pm

The most important activity in woodworking is to pass your skills and knowledge to another woodworker that is open to learning.

Some of you may be thinking I’m just being dramatic, and the world would be better off if I took up mime. But really what do you need to be able to teach others?

Some skills and knowledge!

And how do you get said skills and knowledge?

You practice, and practice, and build stuff, and read stuff, then practice what you read, and practice, and practice, and build stuff.

And on, and on, and on.

So why do we need to pass what we know to others? Seriously, if you really are asking that question, you may as well stop reading this blog.

So don’t be a lame’o.

Build something!

No wait! Practice something!

No that’s not it.

You could read something, or get someone to show you something, and then…

Practice it.

Then build something with it. Then share what you’ve learned with others.

So they can go practice it, and build something.

And so on , and so on…
