Many thanks to all 1058 of you who took part in our recent survey asking ‘Which of these best describes your space?’. The results are in and make for some interesting reading (if you like stats!).
We decided to collect the results for paid and free members separately. This shows us that the average free member is not necessarily working in the same conditions as the average paid member. While there are general trends that will be helpful for informing what space people have available for future projects, as ever we will continue to work all inclusively and support those of you working in less common work spaces.
The most common space used by free members is ‘A small room in my house’ at 18.3% which came as a bit of a surprise to us, alongside the fact that over 5% of people have no dedicated space! It’s amazing to see how people get woodworking in whatever space they have available and we will keep trying to cater for that.
The most common for paying members is to use a single car garage (17.2%) followed by two car garage (16.5%). These are also common for free members, with single car garage being the most common workspace used overall (16.9%). We were quite surprised how many paying members have a dedicated workspace for woodworking (13.8%)!
Again, thanks to all. This will be invaluable in our planning. Look out for more surveys in the near future.
