Ten Easy Woodworking Projects

Ten Easy Woodworking Projects

I’ve built a lot of stuff with wood in my life, but I do not consider myself a “woodworker” by any stretch of the imagination. When I evaluate a project that uses wood, personally, what I look for is the maximum cool result for the least amount of technical skill and work. Here, then, are ten of my personal favorite bangiest-for-the-buck wooden projects from the vault. Enjoy!

    Some of these designs are amazing, personally I have never thought of the monochrome effect as being a good design for in the home,

    but these are fantastic examples!

    Great projects, but whats the Archimedes trammel for?

    1. Sean Michael Ragan says:

      Very, very little, actually. Other than as a toy. Which uselessness inspired one of its other common names, “The BS Grinder.” Also, less offensively, “The Do-Nothing Grinder.”

      The trammel is for drawing ellipses – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hfw0yYur5S4

  9. How To Make A Bench says:

    I am looking for work bench plans, or blue prints to show me how to build a bench. I have looked, but I have failed to find something. I want to make it from scratch, I don’t want to buy a ready made bench. Any help anyone can give me, it is so greatly appreciated. Thanks!!! :)

  12. Ron says:

    I love what you did with the wooden pallets. The design reminds me of an adirondack chair.
    I also like the very simple bed frame that still has a very nice look.
    Keep up the good work.

  13. Cleo says:

    Hi! I was researching for my brother when i came across this – he keeps ignoring me but I think a chest of drawers would be fairly easy. Hope you like the idea!

    These are all great projects to start with as they each teach the basics concepts of woodworking that someone will need to go on to more complicated projects.

      l dont argee these are amazing ideas for ”talented childern” to make.

  17. Ryan Wilford says:

    I like the simple, rustic bedframe. This is exactly my style. I do not like it all to polished to be honest. The bench made using wood pallets is also a sweet – an amazing idea! I wonder if you could use these pallets to sleep on. If you think about it, they’re readymade duckboards. Just not to sure what kind of mattress would fit them.

    Great projects with clear instructions. I’ve gotten an enormous feeling of accomplishment & pride from making my own bookshelves, side tables, wall niches, & lots of mistakes during the process. Besides, if you can find good wood at a good price, these projects are a lot less expensive but a lot nicer than anything you can buy in a store. Thanks Ted for all the help! http://bit.ly/1qcMqUQ
