Manly Hobbies: Woodworking

Manly Hobbies: Woodworking

As a man of good taste, there are few hobbies that offer the ability to make something with your own two hands. In a day and age where everything moves quickly, it seems to us that men could use a creative outlet. What better hobby to pick up than woodworking? And as a matter of fact, that’s the topic of today’s post.

As makers of natural stone bracelets for men, we understand the satisfaction that comes from craftsmanship and each of our bead bracelets is made to stand the test of time. We hope that today’s post will inspire you to pick up your grandfather’s old tools and build a piece that will be in your family for many years to come.

Why Woodworking?

Why not metalworking? Why not welding? Well, to put it simply it’s because woodworking is an easier hobby to get into. All you need is a workspace and a few tools to get started. An idea for what you want to build and a little bit of ingenuity go a long way.

It’s also a great choice because it allows you to work the way you want to work. Prefer a time-tested (and quieter) approach? Hand tools are the way to go. Want to work quickly so you can get started on the next project? Everyone loves power tools.

At the end of the day, the goal is to create something that wasn’t there before. It doesn’t matter if your first work isn’t an heirloom quality piece because as the great Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “every artist was once an amateur.”

What Will You Build?

Need a new dining table? How about a box to store your daily carry items (including one of our natural stone bracelets hopefully)? Perhaps you’d like to build a birdhouse. Whatever the case may be, there are projects available for woodworkers of all skill levels. All it takes is a few tools and some dedication.

No matter what project you undertake, we’d like to with you success in your journey. Be safe and make wise decisions and the outcome is that you’ll have a unique creation that you made with your own two hands.
