Local Woodworking takes place on many different levels, from in-home, do-it-yourself projects to outdoor, garden-shed building, to commercial-scale jobs; whatever the size of the undertaking, obtaining resources and information should be made simpler and easier with a central location for research. A directory of Local Woodworking should be established to bring people and resources together in an open and inviting environment. Of course, the Local Woodworking directory should be on the internet, where any and all can access its marvelous wealth of resources. Whether the need is wood, tools, instruction, or labor, the Local Woodworking Resource Directory will provide the necessary information to all interested parties. For instance, one section of the Local Woodworking directory will be devoted to wood sources. To be truly local, the wood must come from the vicinity of the project itself. Those with lumber or wood scraps to sell will be able to connect with buyers and woodworkers through the Local Woodworking directory, streamlining the process of performing Local Woodworking. Local Woodworking can make use of dead fall, deconstructed, and even recycled wood sources as well as freshly cut timber, and the directory will provide a guide to finding these and more, right in the neighborhood of the job. For Local Woodworking artisans, especially those interested in using only recycled or deconstructed materials, having a central source of information will prove extremely useful in the finding and purchasing of their wood.
