Charlotte, North Carolina (PressExposure) February 12, 2011 -- More and more woodworkers are turning to the internet to find the woodworking information and plans they need. Woodworking as a hobby is growing rapidly each year, and the proof is in the recent woodworking seminars which have been sold out with packed audiences in 2010. Expect a full crowd this weekend at the Woodworking & D.I.Y. Show in Milwaukee too, as thousands of woodworking enthusiasts from around the country come to the largest woodworking event in the entire region.
Woodworking is growing fast for obvious reasons. The internet provides access to thousands of woodworking plans of all skill levels -- from kitchen cabinets to bird houses, cedar chests to wooden toolboxes -- if it can be made with wood, you can probably find a woodworking plan online for it.
There's not doubt that being able to find so many woodworking plans and woodshop information online has helped bring this hobby back into the forefront of America. After all, it wasn't that long ago that working with wood was a requirement of daily life, not something just to be enjoyed in the woodshop on weekends.
But hobbyists are flocking back to their workshop roots.
The ability to make your own wooden furniture and cabinets is a really rewarding skill to have at any time. With the economy slowing down, some woodworking afficiando's are even turning to their hobby to make some extra cash by selling their woodcrafts on sites like eBay and Craigslist.
Additionally, in this tough economy, woodworking provides a way to relieve stress. After spending a week in a highly stressful work environment, wondering each day if this might be your last, coming home to pound on some wood, and get your agression out with power tools is quite therapeutic.
And wood is one natural resource that isn't scarce these days.
Woodworkingplansdiy.org was recently launched to help the woodworking enthusiast find great ideas, tips, and woodworking plans to fuel their woodcraft desire.
"Woodworking is a great hobby that's perfect for men and women, adults and children", says Jack Duncan. "People fall in love with woodworking the first time they sit down behind a scroll saw or router and make those first cuts. It's really a therapeutic hobby with sights, smells, and sounds that are unique."
By giving away tons of free information about woodworking, Woodworkingplansdiy.org looks to establish a strong following of fellow woodworker's who are looking to take their skills to a whole new level.
