Poll: How Did You First Learn About Woodworking?

This month’s poll asks “How did YOU first learn about woodworking?” Did you go into your parent or grandparent's shop at a young age and watch what they were making? Did you make your own projects in scouts? Did you take shop class in school? Did you just recently retire and want to learn something new in your spare time? Is it your career? Some other way?

Fisch Wave Cutter Forstner Bit - Set of 16

Save $110 on the Fisch Wave Cutter Forstner Bit
Set of 16

These bits are forged and CNC machined for durability and precision. The patented "Wave Cutter" scalloped outside edge is a big improvement over standard forstner bits. Its unique slicing effect helps to cut super smooth holes while reducing heat for long tool life. Combined with the center point, the Wave Cutter edge makes it significantly easier to drill smooth, true holes using a cordless or corded portable drill. It even helps reduce walking.
