The digital revolution has really changed our world. We are logging on and tuning out. But a counter culture revolution is on the rise. And it’s an ancient craft that’s been around since the beginning of humankind - woodworking. Spurred on by a new generation who are looking to make things with their hands, the DIY woodworking movement is coming back into the spotlight.
There are so many things about wood that we take for granted. But from the cribs we sleep in as babies to the caskets we are buried in, wood touches us all in a real and personal way. Without it, we probably wouldn’t be here. We would have no heat, no shelter, and no boats for exploring the far reaches of the Earth. So many of our inventions come from wood and civilizations advanced because of it.
For the Love of Wood is about the passionate people who love making things with wood and the important role that wood has played in our history, culture and society.
