About

First attempt at the full blind dovetail.
Hand tools and fancy joinery turn mundane box making into a cathartic experience.

Wood.Work.LIFE is a fine woodworking and lifestyle website dedicated to wood and the modern world. We are dedicated to creating unique inspiration, how-tos, DIY projects, techniques and knowledge targeted for hobbyist to professional woodworkers, hand crafters, and makers.

Our goal is to be different in emphasizing the enjoyment of the process; design, joinery, craftsmanship and making things that last.

We are not here to show you the only way to do things, or to direct you towards the fastest way to get things done but to bring out the enjoyment of the process and the appreciation of finished products to create things where the story is as important as the function.

Everything posted here is geared toward making your experience better and to inspire you to stretch your skills and our own.

An old English proverb states “clothes don’t make a man” neither do tools. We will do tool reviews from that perspective, because “tools don’t make a man.”

We look forward to growing and learning together as a community,

Keep your tools sharp, and your mind sharper,
