And what about the difference in the skill level between an amateur and professional woodworker? A professional woodworker is paid to because of their skill and artistic ability. They are expected to have a high level of quality and spend their days working on their trade. An amateur woodworker usually has a day job that they work at and only woodwork as a hobby for fun. But take a quick look around the web at sites like The Wood Whisperer or LumberJocks and you will quickly see that there are some amazing pieces made by what are considered amateur woodworkers.
It seems that in truth it really doesn’t matter if you are an amateur or professional woodworker, we all have a lot to teach each other.
