As part of WOOD's commitment to bring advertisers new insights about the woodworking marketplace, WOOD has developed an exclusive research initiative, The WOOD Enthusiast Panel™. The Panel provides advertisers with timely, market-sensitive information about the consumer purchasing dynamics, including data on brand awareness, category trends and woodworking habits and skill levels.

The WOOD Enthusiast Panel™ was formed to provide marketers with:
