Education And Training

Many high schools offer classes in woodworking. In addition, check the offerings at local adult education programs and colleges. If you are fortunate enough to know a woodworker in the particular area that interests you, ask to be an apprentice.

Woodcrafter Sue Jennings, who works with her husband, Stan, reports that “anyone can learn woodworking with time, patience, and a good teacher. They need to just keep at it. Stay focused on your goal and don't despair if things go slow.” She adds, “If you are young, time is on your side. We didn't start our business until we were almost middle aged and we wish we had started many years earlier.”
