Up to 699 members. Exciting waiting to hit 700 isn't it? :lol:
IIRC the woodworking market in the uk is about thirty-six thousand. This was a figure quoted, again iirc, by Pete from GWW.froglet":2eh61116 said:The interest stems from another thread about the disappearance of woodworking from Discovey H&L and I got to wondering how large the target market for such programmes really is in the UK.
Yes, you're right. What H&L have been very successful at doing is to bring people into woodworking and thereby increasing the size of the market.froglet":2u5dop9e said:Thats an unfortunately small number as I wouldn't have thought that we have enough consumer clout for H&L to take any notice of us at all.
Is that just the magazine-buying woodworkers though? Not everyone does, in the same way not everyone is internet enabled. Or if they are it may not even occur to them to look for woodworking fora. It's probably still a depressingly small figure though.Newbie_Neil":3w2klhnt said:IIRC the woodworking market in the uk is about thirty-six thousand.
