The Benefits of Woodworking

General Article

What is Woodworking?

Woodworking is the known as the building or the creation of objects out of wood. You can create a lot of different objects from woodworking and these objects can be as big as gazebos or as small as wooden toys. No matter how big or small your personal project may be you will be very likely to accomplish that goal with woodworking. In addition, woodworking has many personal as well as emotional benefits! In this article I am going to briefly identify some of these benefits for you.

Woodworking as a Career:

A lot of people who love to work with their hands have turned that love into a career through woodworking. People who build things out of wood are generally known as carpenters. Carpenters can work on a variety of woodworking projects and job types. For instance, some carpenters own their carpentry business and these individuals have the luxury to set their work hours. This benefit allows carpenters the opportunity to spend more time with their families and have less job stress. Raising children is a really difficult task no matter what way you approach the task! For a carpenter who owns his or her own business, this task might not be as hard because that individual will have more time to be a part of his or her child’s life. By playing a bigger role in the life of your child you will be having a greater impact on the type of character that child develops into, which is a huge concern for any loving parent. In addition to these benefits, carpentry can also have health benefits as well.

Physical Health Benefits of Woodworking:

Woodworking requires working with and carrying wood around a lot. This results in more physical activity, which results in better physical health. Keeping your body physically fit is really important and can help prevent the occurrence of various illnesses later on in life. By being physically fit you can reduce chances that you will have a heart attack, have seizures, become a diabetic, and reduce the chances of having a number of other illnesses.

Do It Yourself Woodworking Saves Money:

I always feel like I paid way too much when I go to home improvement stores and buy patio furniture, and I am sure that I am not the only person who has felt this way! A successful business owner once told me to always increase the sales price of a product to double what you obtained it for. This way, you can always reduce the product to 50 percent off and still come out without acquiring any losses. This seems like it might be the same tactic that home improvement stores use in selling their wooden furniture products. Regardless, there is a way that you can get around paying the extra money and that has to do with building it yourself. Luckily, there are several really good woodworking products that offer thousands of detailed woodworking plans for hundreds of different … Read More

Lemon and Lemon Peel As a Safe Alternative to Pesticides

General Article

Use lemons and lemons peels:

Effects of using chemical pesticides:

Common pesticides that are being used in homes are now being shown in medical research to accelerate aging of the immune and nervous system resulting in serious health problems years after exposure. However the majority of the public still believes these chemicals are completely tested by the government. But unfortunately, this is not the case, as the chemical companies do their own testing and submit the results to the EPA for review, setting up the potential for selective reporting. It is matter of significant concern, that agriculture and consumer use pesticides are not currently required to be tested for subtle neurological effects especially for memory, depression, behavior including child learning disorders and pregnancy developmental studies and immune system effects like lowering the white blood counts and increased infection rates and autoimmunity.

Herbal pest control measures at home:

Pests in the home can be incredible nuisances and difficult to get rid of when children, pets or sensitivities are involved. The best way to deal in such a case is to adopt herbal home pest control products and measures. Most of these when used according to directions and a bit of common sense, are designed and tested for use in homes and living spaces. One such effective agent is lemon or lemon peel. Lemon uses natural and generally non-toxic ingredients to repel or get rid of pests including ants, wasps, mites, moths, flies and other insects.

Effectiveness of lemon and lemon peel as a repellent:

Lemon is found to be very effective against ants. A few drops of squeezed lemon juice directly over the nest is an effective way to get rid of ants. The fruit of lemon has a considerable percentage of citric acid, which is found to have natural repellent properties. There are many pests and insects that simply dislike the natural scent of lemon. More over not only fresh lemon but the outer skin of lemon commonly known as the lemon peel can be dried and also used as a natural pest repeller especially in those areas like the kitchen, where pesticides or any other form of chemical can not be used to get rid of pests.… Read More
