Whether you’re a beginner looking to try your hand at woodworking or an experienced crafter looking to do something this weekend, we have a project for you. Here you will find a variety of plans for simple storage solutions, indoor and outdoor decoration, games, furniture and more.
Woodworking is a rewarding hobby with endless possibilities, suitable for all skill levels. If you’re a newbie, don’t be intimidated. There are lots of super easy projects you can try that will help you learn and get started. And contrary to what you might think, you don’t need a lot of expensive tools. With just a few basic tools – yes, even hand tools – you can learn the art of woodworking. (Note: Try estate sales and auctions to find used power and hand tools. Older hand tools were often better made than their new counterparts, and brands like Craftsman have a lifetime warranty even if you buy them used.)
We have put together our best projects for you. Many of our simple projects can be built from reclaimed wood such as fence panels and old pallets and require no special cutting or joinery. Our more complicated projects allow you to hone your talents in mitering corners, milling grooves, and pocket hole joinery.
Here are great woodworking projects for beginners that will teach you the basics of building with wood. Some of the projects listed below can be completed in a weekend, others in just a few hours. In any case, all projects will help you create something great out of wood.
