As they say, “music is the language of the soul.”
And if you’re a woodworker, why not make your project connect to your soul – say, by incorporating music to woodworking?
Here are some ways:
- Carving Musical Instruments. Woodworking is not just limited to furniture making and creating traditional wood projects like a bowl or a spoon using tools from Healthy Handyman. Woodworking is about unleashing your creativity, as well as what truly makes your soul happy. So if you love music as much as you love woodworking, why don’t you create something that has both? Carve wood keychains of musical instruments, be it a small-sized guitar or a medium-sized piano. You can also make something that relates to how you play music on a daily basis. Say, you usually play music on your mobile phone. So, carve a musical-themed wood casing for it. Say, you play musical instruments. So, create a stand for your musical instrument. Say, you prefer listening to CDs and old records. So, make a shelf for those albums.
- Listening To Music. Wood projects might take long to finish completely. There’s also a possibility that you’ll lock yourself in your bedroom or in your garage just to concentrate on your wood project. However, don’t forget that working on something – especially with little interactions coming from the outside world – can have a daunting effect on your body and mental state like fatigue and irritability. So, listen to music while working on your wood projects. It will not only make you feel better, but also make you feel more lively as you work. It also helps your mind truly concentrate on what you’re doing in a healthy way – and by healthy, it means giving you the ability to let go of any negativity you might have as you work on the project and cheer you up if you’re feeling down.
In conclusion, you can always incorporate music into woodworking. Whether you’re incorporating it due to passion or due to lifestyle, music will always be there for you – no matter what happens. To help you realize the importance of music even more – not just in woodworking, but also in other aspects of a person’s life – imagine a world without music, not even a peeping sound from your little brother who just opened the front door to go outside and play with his friends.
So, incorporate music in woodworking – as well as in other aspects of your life.
