Woodworking is a fabulous hobby. But for the beginner woodworker, starting with simple and useful projects is often the best way to begin. So here are some easy woodworking projects that many beginners love.
Often when someone is living in the big city or they’re living in a small apartment, the kitchen does not have much room. Even sometimes in smaller mobile homes and other such situations, the kitchen might be very small. So organizing everything in the kitchen helps make it roomier.
Wood Utensil Organizer
This is a very easy project that can be done by making a simple rectangular shaped box and some wood inserts. Then by adding a handle and placing some wood or glass jars inside of the box, it can easily be used to help organize utensils and other items.
This is an extremely easy project and yet it can be used as a great wall hanger that is very attractive. To make this project only 3 pieces of wood are needed. They should be rectangular in shape. One piece will be placed vertically and the other two will be placed horizontally. The vertical piece will be painted blue with a white star. The top horizontal piece will be painted white and the bottom horizontal piece will be painted red.
Sofa-Arm Cup Holder
This is another great and simple idea that is very useful. It’s always very satisfying when starting out, to make things that are actually used. This takes three pieces of wood. One piece will be the top piece and the other two pieces will be placed on the bottom of the long sides of the top piece. The top piece will need a whole made into the wood large enough for the cup to go into. Once completed, simply put it on the arm of any sofa or chair and it makes for a great cup holder.
Project For The Kids
Whenever a parent develops a new love for a hobby like woodworking, they should consider including the kids in the equation. Make a wooden crayon holder. Simply cut out a wood block big enough that holes can be drilled into it large enough to hold crayons. Then simply paint on the word ‘Crayons’ and place multiple colored crayons into the holes on the top. This is a super easy project that can be done with children of most ages and something that they will use every day.
An incredibly simple but great piece of wall art is wooden arrows. Simply make 3 wooden arrows that will be placed on the wall as wall art. All this takes are the pieces of wood that will be cut into wooden arrows and then simply installing them on the wall. It takes less than an hour to do this project and yet it will be satisfying every time someone looks at this attractive wall art.
Getting started is a matter of starting simple. Anyone can develop this skill. Simply try these easy woodworking projects and soon it will grow into a great passion.
