Learning the skill of simple woodworking is something that can be incredibly fun and create very useful items for the home. It is not necessary for someone just getting started with DIY wood projects to have all the most expensive tools. Only a few tools for cutting, sanding, and drilling are really needed, to begin with.
Rolling Wood Stump Coffee Table
Coffee tables are extremely easy to make and with a little imagination, some really wonderful creations can come to life. One of those is making a rolling coffee table from a tree stump. Simply cut the bottom and top to be flat, sand it, and finish it. Then simply drill 3 holes to insert the wheels on the bottom of the table. This will make an incredibly unique and beautiful peace in the home.
Wood benches can be simply a flat piece of wood with four legs or they can have an interesting design and of course they can have a back. Experienced woodworkers can make benches that are more elaborate, and beginners can make something that is simple. But making a bench is something that is practical and that anyone can proudly display on a porch or in the yard or even in a room inside the home.
Hanging Pallet Bed
Instead of a hammock that many people find uncomfortable, consider making an outdoor bed using pallets. Very often someone can go to shipping yards and trucking distribution centers and those places will have broken pallets that they will gladly give away for free. Those pallets can be used to make a platform that can be hung from a tree. Then an outdoor mattress can be put on top of that to make an incredibly comfortable outdoor hanging bed.
Start with an appropriate sized tree stump and cut the top and bottom so it is flat. Then sand and finish the top and make a hole large enough to put in a candle. Using natural sources such as wood stumps give a unique and natural feeling. Candles further add to this feeling and make for a great addition to any home.
This can easily be made from pallets and often the material can be gotten for free by simply going to shipping and trucking yards where they often have broken pallets and will gladly allow anyone to take them away for free. Simply make a tabletop and then 4 small legs, one on each corner. Paint and design it anyway that looks good. This can then be used as a table in bed or placed on a person’s lap when eating or using the laptop or enjoying coffee time.
Anyone can have great fun making these simple DIY wood projects. They are easy and practicle and they take only a minimum of basic tools to make. Anyone starting can do them with a basic power tool for cutting, a sanding tool, and a drill. Try these simple projects and see how terrific they are.
