Hey, I'm Wood Whiz- Eric Hawkings

Welcome to woodwhiz.com. My name is Eric Hawkins. I love all things wood. After getting a degree in engineering, I followed my passion of working with wood in different capacities like woodworking, staining, polishing, oils, crafts, finishing and much more.

Woodworking has been with modern humans since the dawn of time. The oldest ax that we know of is at least 44,000 years old. We're naturally drawn to working with all kinds of woods for many reasons. In some ways, wood is a more flexible construction material than concrete or steel. Even in today's highly digital economy, old-fashioned wood craftsmanship is a highly respected trade. There's certainly been a resurgence of interest in woodworking as of late. Thanks to the Internet, even the most unskilled prospective woodworkers can conquer carpentry projects right off the bat. By getting their hands dirty, amateurs develop a greater appreciation for the fine art of woodworking.

The Upsides of Woodworking Know-How

Being handy when it comes to building with wood can confer a variety of benefits to anyone.

  • Lower Home Improvement Bills:

    When you know your way around wood, you don't need to hire a professional to do the hands-on work for you. By doing so, you can save yourself some serious scratch regardless of the theoretical project's time frame. The money that you save on labor can be better invested in superior materials

  • Superior Results:

    Hiring a contractor to address your woodworking problems rather than tackling them yourself isn't always a sure-fire recipe for success. By handling a project on your own, you can choose your preferred lumber stock, fasteners and stains. What's more, you can take your time and ensure that attention to detail is unimpeachable.

  • Quicker Renovation Times:

    Hiring a professional woodworker to replace flooring and put up fencing often involves annoying delays. If you can do the work yourself, you don't have to worry about a contractor sticking to an agreement and showing up on time. When scheduling is a concern, the ability to do the work yourself is invaluable.

  • Potential Side Income:

    In an age where many Americans can't even change a flat tire, practical skills like woodworking can be quite lucrative. Homeowners will always be willing to pay good money for custom fences, decks and cabinetry. Amateur woodworkers with some experience can turn a tidy profit by completing home improvement projects on the side.
