Modern Woodworkers Association Podcast - Woodworking Banter
Today there is a vast amount of information that can be found online through woodworking communities, forums, blogs, and other social media such as Twitter and Google+. Through these online connections, woodworkers learn from one another and build camaraderie with fellow woodworkers. In a sense, we all belong to a woodworking club, the online woodworking club. The Modern Woodworkers Association is a place for the online woodworking community to reinforce our online connections and create personal ones in local gatherings in many regions across the country.
It is a place for woodworkers of all skill levels from professional to hobbyist to be able to share knowledge and learn form one another. The name Modern Woodworkers Association does not come from the fact that we are powertool users or for that matter handtool users but instead that we have all found a new tool, the online community and the power of information.
Our goals are create an environment for woodworkers to share and connect online, offline, or both.
