SURVEY: THE IDES OF NOVEMBER

Ellis Walentine
>As you know, every two months we trot out a pithy question for your input. The results are pruned, tossed lightly and submitted to Woodworker West magazine, where they appear as our monthly "News & Views" column. (Click here to read some previous columns.)

This months survey topic was suggested by Barb Siddiqui, our resident editorial assistant and book reviewer. It has to do with the passing of the torch, as it were, of our collective woodworking knowledge and experience to a new generation.

Life today and into the future promises to be very different in many respects, and woodworking is bound to be different as well. This time around, I'd like to hear your thoughts on the place woodworking woodworking will occupy in the lives of our children's generation. What values, skills, sensibilities, etc. will be applicable in the near and mid-term future? As a bonus question, how do you think the activity itself will change to adapt to the new realities of the 21st Century?

Have fun with this one.

Regards,
Ellis Walentine, Host
