Note: Thanks to Sras help this blog have now been moved to this forum instedad:

There is so much nice inspiration for woodworkers on the internet. Learning the skill have newer been easier and more approaceable as now. But keeping track of all that information can be difficult. At least daily i find a great site, think “i can easily remeber that adress for another day” and then forget about it 5 seconds later.

Thought that i should keep some sort of list of the best links to all things woodwork and it occured that i could as well keep it here for you guys to enjoy as well.

I’ll stress that these are my personal favorites. Focus will be on furniture, design, Mid Century Modern and inspiration in general. I’ll try to sort them according to theme and keep the list up to date as i find new, nice stuff.

Please let me know in the comments if there is something i just HAVE to add to the list

This is an excellent list! Thanks for sharing.

If I may, I’ll make one suggestion. You might want to move this to a forum. When a forum entry is updated, it moves back to the top of the list. Blog entries are ordered by the date they are created.

The challenge is to decide which forum, I would suggest the Design Forum (I guess that is 2 suggestions ;)
