Last year we asked “What Inspires You to Woodwork?”. This year, we are asking you to inspire the future generation of woodworkers. Submit a video for the Nordys Video Contest and show how you are inspiring the future generation of woodworkers!
There are many ways to inspire the future generation of woodworkers! Build a project for a child as a gift or create something unique with the help of a youngster. Teach the future generation proper tool uses or safety procedures. Already have a son or daughter that is a budding woodworker? Here’s your opportunity to show off their work to other woodworker’s around the globe. Embrace your inner child and have fun with it!
