Pinterest is a visual discovery tool, a free website you can use to get ideas about all kinds of woodworking things. And not just that, but anything else you’re interested in – home decorating, furniture, crafts, model airplanes – you name it.

How do you use it? You make a free account, and you make “boards” to post to. A board is the name for a group of pins – essentially bookmarks of cool thing you, or others have found on the net. I have boards for Mission style, home decor, pallet furniture, etc. When I find something around the net, I “pin it” to my board, which others can see and pin to their boards as well.

Sounds harder than it is.

Here a little tutorial on how to use it.

I use it to collect ideas for woodworking and other stuff.

They have a very good board on stuff for the shop, find it here

Pashley, I thought I was going to hate your post. But you took the criticism (constructive and not so constructive) from the last one and made a very good post, good job. If you don’t mind and have time another good site is Kind of the same thing. Good job on the post again.

Have your say...
