Simple Woodworking Projects

Your Own Cutting Board

The most basic of basics. Just work that piece of lumber down to the appropriate size, smooth the surfaces. And voila! A fine addition to your kitchen equipment.

Rustic Candle Holder

Perfect for romantic dates, relaxing moments in the hot tub, and even the rare power outages. Build the wooden frame, with the little depressions you can fix the candles in. Maybe attach some legs. There, you’ve got somewhere to neatly arrange your candles.

Bird House

This is a perfect project to do with the kids. It’s also fairly simple. Make a triangular roof and a “body” that will house the roof. It can be mounted on a pole or hung from a tree or fixed on said tree itself. All the little birdies will be so happy!

Wine Rack

Got a spare plank of wood? Turning a wood plank into a wine rack is relatively simple and prevents a perfectly good piece of lumber from going to waste. You’ll also be able to display wine bottles in an aesthetic way.

Simple Table

Whether it’s an X-legged table or a standard design, these are perfect summer DIY projects and will help you furnish your porch or veranda.

Wooden Bookends

You don’t need accurate measurements for these. As long as the blocks are sufficiently heavy to hold the books, you’re good. But this won’t count as a woodworking project if you’re just taking raw pieces of lumber and putting them around a line of novels. Try sculpting them into any shape you want, whether it’s artistic, abstract or totally random. Get creative!

A Great Pastime

Woodworking is a wonderful hobby. It helps you keep fit and stay sharp. It’s also good for the environment and can help you create wood and lumber replacements for household plastic products. So if you want to start on some simple woodworking projects, or graduate to more complex creations, then contact your local lumber supplier and get ready to start sawing away!
