    I recruited some help and made a big dent in a fence across the front of the property.

    Re: Does this count as woodworking?

    Let's see - the wood is present, there are at least two hammers and one fetching dog. Yep, woodworking as far as I can tell.
    I like making things. I have a wood shop at home. I am a terrible carpenter but I love doing it. Raymond - Charlotte, NC

    I wouldn't call it exactly Fine Furniture Making, but woodworking nonetheless. Very nice looking fence. I need something like that on my property.

    I think the nails disqualify it on this site. But nice grain pattern.

    I call foul!

    I did not see a single piece of wood doing any work whatsoever. What I see is people working, so clearly this is peopleworking and not woodworking. Please get the terminology straight as it gets very confusing when we get our terminology confused!

    We're tools purchased? It's not a woodworking project unless it has a healthy jusifcation for new tool purchases.

    Re: Does this count as woodworking?

    David, in this group, if you put hickory chips on your smoker, it's considered woodworking.....
    To Ethan's reply, I say a toothpick is really woodworking. It's working at getting my teeth cleaned....

    ....but the real fine woodworking part comes when you eat what was smoked.

    I did buy two new framing hammers. 22 oz. I was driving 3" nails with 3-4 swings. The kids... not so much.

    Thank you Ethan for pointing out this seemingly grievous error! I'm going right out to my woodworking shop and verify that there is actually some wood doing some work in there. Of course on the other hand, I might point out that the posts are at work holding up the rails, which will eventually be working to keep things on their proper side of the fence. Hmmm, I think I'm now confused.......
