New "Featured Maker" series at Wacky Wood Works

 Wacky Wood Works has a new feature that has just started, it is called "Featured Maker." The goal is to throw the spotlight on various creators and share their story of how they got into woodworking, what they make, and a bit of their philosophy from the shop.

I was honored to be the first one interviewed to kick off the Featured Maker series. But I don't want to give anything away, you can check out the interview at Wacky Woodworks Featured Maker page. 

I have had Wacky Wood Works in my Links page for some time now. One of the cool things about the internet is that the woodworking community is a global one and the host of Wacky Wood Works, who's online name is Nighthawk, is from New Zealand.

I always find it interesting to get a peak into the shops of people from around the world. Often I find both a mix of familiar and unfamiliar brands of tools as a lot of machinery sold in other countries is not seen here in the American market. 

Getting to see other shops and projects allows us to see differences in philosophies and experience regional dialects in design. But for all of the differences that I find myself looking for, the similarities are stronger and what binds us together as a community. 

No matter where we live, I find that we all share a great love of the craft and desire to help others succeed in their projects by lending experience and advice. All in all, I think the online woodworking community is a generous one and I am glad to be a part of it. 

Be sure to check out Wacky Wood Works and all of Nighthawk's projects. Also be sure to start following the Featured Maker series and get to know the stories of other makers from around the world.
