Woodworking is a craft that requires great skill, patience, self-control, and attention to detail. It’s also an industry that produces some of the most durable, aesthetic, and high quality products available in a number of industries. Industrial woodworking includes the production of timber (supply wood for DIY projects) and wood-based products/supplies for industries like furniture, cabinetry, carpentry, boat design, flooring, framing, and general assembly. Such a vast industry also requires the use of specially made products that assist craftsman and assembly workers in manufacturing and assembling wood-based products. These include blades and cutting tools, fastening bits like nuts and bolts, and industrial-quality adhesives and glue gun or bulk hot melt applicators.
