1. LEARN NEW SKILLS

Woodworking can teach you a new set of skills. You’ll have to learn new things like how to properly use tools such as table saws, sanders, planers, and drill presses, to name a few. You’ll also be able to take your new skill set and apply it to other areas in your life as well.

2. IMPROVE COMMUNICATION SKILLS

If you’re working with someone else, communication is a key part of a successful project. Woodworking will teach you to communicate clearly. It'll also teach you how to explain directions clearly. Once you start explaining your project to other people and giving them instructions, you can learn new communication skills.

3. IMPROVE MENTAL SHARPNESS

When it comes to woodworking, you have to be mentally sharp to stay on task and concentrate on what you’re trying to accomplish. Since one mistake can derail an entire project, this requires your utmost concentration. You’ll also have to remember how to do things properly each time, and this will help you to stay mentally sharp.

4. IMPROVE YOUR MOOD

Many people find woodworking to be very soothing and relaxing, which is extremely helpful for those who have problems with negative thinking. The repetitive motions and meticulous nature of woodworking makes it a wonderful way for just about anyone to relax.

5. COMBAT DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY

Many therapists suggest woodworking to clients who are suffering from depression, anxiety and even post-traumatic stress disorder. Sometimes distracting yourself is a good way to relieve feelings of stress and anxiety. Because woodworking is such an engaging activity, it serves as an effective distraction from negative thoughts and feelings. It requires attention to detail, which also means that it occupies your mind completely while you are doing it.

6. GOOD FOR YOUR HEART

It can also improve your cardiovascular health: Since woodworking lowers your stress levels and forces you to get up and move around, it can improve your cardiovascular health. Stress is one of the main causes of heart-related issues such as heart attacks or strokes, and if you’re woodworking, you’ll be less stressed. Since you’re improving your physical health at the same time, it'll make your heart healthier.

7. DEVELOP CREATIVE SKILLS

As soon as you get comfortable with woodworking, you’ll start to come up with projects on your own. This will require you to develop your creative skills. You’ll also have to come up with a way to solve any problems or issues that you may run into during a project. The more you practice woodworking, the more possibilities you’ll begin to see.

8. CUSTOMIZE YOUR FURNITURE

A huge benefit of this craft is customizing furniture to fit your needs and wants. If you have a bedroom with limited storage, woodwork can create storage space beneath your bed, for example. There is also something very satisfying about building shelves in your home and having more room for other activities.

9. SAVE MONEY

One of the best reasons for switching to woodworking is that you'll never have to purchase or repair things like fences, wardrobes, or tool sheds. Due to this, you can end up saving thousands of dollars every year.

10. SATISFACTION GUARANTEED

There's the satisfaction of building something with our own hands. The ability to build and create something by yourself is becoming a lost art in today’s world. To see a piece of rough timber become straight, dressed, and assembled is a very self satisfying process; even more so when you can say “I made that!”.

11. START YOUR OWN BUSINESS

A very rewarding benefit is that woodworking provides an opportunity for entrepreneurship. People still value the skill and time it takes to make something from scratch and are happy to pay for it. This hobby can allow you to be your own boss and decide what to make. And you can focus on making a profit by selling high-demand items such as those trending on Etsy or eBay. 

12. WORK FROM HOME

Perhaps one of the best things about working with wood is that you can work from home!

As you can see, woodworking can be relaxing and fun. Despite what most people think, it’s not that difficult to get started. It doesn’t require a huge time or financial investment, and it could change your life for the better!
