Top 10 Woodworking Projects For Every Skill Level
Have you ever seen a master carpenter at work and wished you could do it just as well or better? Maybe you’ve seen an interesting piece of furniture that cost more than you wanted to pay, and wondered if you could make it yourself. The answer is, yes you can! With the proper planning, a few basic tools, and clearly stated instructions on how to get started, woodworking can be a fun hobby which saves you money. Further, your skills will impress your wife and kids, and your friends will be jealous of your abilities.
Everybody needs a good workbench. If you plan to take up woodworking as a serious hobby you’ll need a place to work, or if you decide woodworking isn’t your cup of tea you’ll still use a workbench for other tasks such as changing a watch battery or repairing a set of glasses.
A wooden wagon can help you with common chores around the house or yard, or can be especially fun if you have children who may want to play with it. It’s a fairly easy project which can easily be altered to suit your needs.
Saw horses, or sawbucks as some people call them, can perform a number of functions in your yard or shop. If you don’t have room for a regular workbench, they can serve as a small one which comes apart and stacks together for storage when not in use.
Nearly as important as your workbench is a good toolbox to keep all your gear organized, accessible, and easy to move to where you need to use them. A simple A-frame style toolbox is perfect for most people who have a small tool collection.
