About Samantha:

I recently graduated from a 12 month woodworking course. I have an art background, my formal training is in Illustration. In the past I worked as a dog walker, glassblower, graphic designer and as a freelance artist painting pet portraits.

About Warped Boards:

Warped Boards is a behind the scenes tour of the early years in a woodworker’s career. The focus being primarily on how to start a woodworking career, and the business side of things.  A veritable cheat sheet for anyone who has yet to start theirs.

    Nice Blog! Can you mention where you went to woodworking school? I may want to go someday myself and don’t know anything about them except for a weekend class I took once at a WoodCraft store. Thanks – Jim

      I recommend that you do a google search for woodworking trade schools in your area- some other key words that would help are vocational training, technical training, and career school. Then you’ll get some options for a more formal A-Z training.

    Woodworking can be an economically difficult business. A blog that shares your business experiences early in your career should be very helpful. Thanks.

    Which School did you go to? 12 month course so a Comm College or…. maybe NorthWest WW with Gary Rogowski?(which is a great school) Me, I’m a North Bennet Street applicant as of now. I dig your blog though. Nice to see a younger girl into WW, Im 24 so not a lot of people my age get the hand tool thing… anyway. Cool to see. later.
