This Online Group Is All About Appreciating Woodworking Skills, And Here Are Their 109 Best Posts (New Pics)


My grandfather built his house not far away from his mother's log home. When she died, he converted hers into a wood workshop. I remember going there as a child; the place seemed like another world to me. Inside, there were stacks and stacks of tools, some big, some small, and you could always smell warm and earthy scents. A birch chair in one corner, an almost finished oak table in the other. It was so peaceful.


It had been a while since I immersed myself into these memories, but as soon as I saw the subreddit r/WoodWorking, they all came rushing back to me.


This online community is dedicated to "furniture, toys, tools, wood, glue, and anything else that has to do with woodworking as a hobby or profession," and I have to say, its members are really, really skilled. Not as much as my grandad, of course, but almost. Continue scrolling to check out their best projects and fire up Bored Panda's earlier posts on the subreddit here and here.
