I was just watching TV and a commercial came on for National dog adoption day.

I think we should start a National Woodworker’s Day.

We could encourage other groups to go out in public places to demonstrate and let folks try wood tools. Similar to our outreach events, but Nation wide.

I believe we have a list of woodworking clubs we could contact to get involved. Tool suppliers could help advertise, it would definitely help them sell more tools.

We may even get legislation enacted to make it official.

Maybe Have Each Week of April dedicated to different aspects of woodworking, say one week traditional carving and all wood joinery, week 2 Turnings and spindles, etc .......... with each week we have a single thread that starts out with some background on origins of the specific skill.

To follow on the theme of Mike and Martin, during the month of April we could also feature fellow woodworkers from our forum who have past away. We could share photos, stories and highlight their particular craft.

Mike, I like your line of thinking here.


I was always pretty impressed by the NC chest of drawers build that you guys collaborated on.

Given NC contributions to furniture making, I always thought an appropriate piece, constructed specifically for display/use in a public venue (government residence, statehouse, airport terminal, etc.) would be within reach.

Perhaps another project like that to be delivered in April 2020.
