    Pride in Teamwork

    By Julie Peri–

    This week’s tool tip, in honor of Pride, is a little different. One of the most important things we teach at Dykes With Drills is how to work together. Construction and building are best done with a partner or team. Working together ensures that if someone gets hurt, there is another who can help. Having a partner allows you to brainstorm ideas together, help each other stay safe on ladders, avoid making precarious cuts … the list goes on! Working together also gives you a sense of community and a special bond that are only formed when building with another. 

    Start building your woodworking community and join us at an in-person or online event. Here is what we have coming up next!
