Reasons to write a blog post

Although there is the forum for having informal discussions about plywood furniture, There are many reasons you might want to write a blog post instead. If you have recently completed a new plywood project and you would like to write in-depth about it, or you just want to share a nice photo gallery of what you built. Maybe you have developed a method or technique for working with plywood that you would like to explain in detail with steps and pictures. There are many reasons to write a blog post and we are stoked that you want too! If you don’t feel you have enough to say to necessitate a blog post feel free to submit what you have anyways and let us know and we will help you round out your article, or feel free to make an Instagram Submission instead.

Post Formatting

Post Title

Make post titles short and topical. Try to keep it to 8 words or less (4-5 is the sweet spot) If you’re writing about how to stain plywood furniture make the title “How to stain plywood furniture” or How we stain plywood furniture at Company Name

Opening Paragraph

The opening paragraph should be 1-3 sentences that setup what the article is going to be about. This is what people will see as a preview, so you want it to convey enough that people can make a choice on if its a topic they want to read more about.


All quotes should be marked with “quotation marks.” Additionally the name of the person being quoted should be included. If any alterations are made to a quote [brackets] should be used to let the reader know. Here’s a helpful guide from about Inserting or Altering words in direct quotes

Closing Paragraph

This is your time to sum up what you have already said. You may have just made a long winded attempt to explain how to machine miter joints on a cnc router. The closing paragraph is a good place to simplify and reiterate what you have already said. This is also a good place for a call to action. Like check out our other projects at, or “I would love to hear how you do it, so leave a comment if you do it differently.”

Lists and STeps

If your post is a list or has steps please make that clear by telling us, and numbering them
