About a year ago we did a week of articles focused on woodworking basics, which you all seemed to love. And since we continuously see an influx of new woodworkers visiting our site, we’ve decided to make it an annual tradition going forward. Like last year, we’ll be gathering articles new and old that showcase a variety of tools and techniques that build the very foundation of woodworking. You don’t need to be a beginner either, everyone can benefit from a refresh.

With accessibility in mind, we’re also presenting a special offer on our PopWood+ membership, where you can save 25% off your first month or whole year when you use the code BASIC23 at checkout.
