Woodworking is becoming a hot property for entrepreneurs looking to make a quick buck. This is especially true as consumers are turning to craft shops for more affordable furniture for their homes. Woodworking is still not as popular as it once was and if you’d like to learn how to build unique furniture from an angle you may need to pay a little extra for that piece of wood.
Here are five projects that will help you turn a small backyard into a creative workshop:
1. Crafted Bench
The most popular style of woodworking bench is known as cedar or cedar wood. But there are a lot of wood options available from all three types of woods. The cedar type is a medium-to-long-distance project that is used for a number of different purposes.
For a kitchen, the wood should be a bit higher, around six to 10 inches tall. The best thing to do is use a piece of plywood that’s two to four inches thick, or if you need to support two feet from your bench, use 3/4-inch plywood.
The best place to start when you’re building a bench is by building a few boards. You’ll be looking for a shape similar to your current bench and then work from there.
As with any project it’s important to start small. Experiment with different thicknesses and lengths of plywood to see what you like but don’t be afraid to experiment. Start small but go big if you want to reach bigger heights.
2. Wood Stove or Laundry Stove
If your furniture is in need of a little bit of love. If you’re looking to use the wood to make a fireplace, this easy woodworking project will help you turn a pile of wood into the perfect centerpiece.
Just put some of your favorite pine trim into the back and begin constructing your stove. Then you add a few layers of hardwood onto the back of the stove and attach it to a door with a piece of ¾ inch woodworking pipe.
For some simple projects like the one above, you can get you lumber to your house in just a short time. It’s even easier if you do this project in the winter. It’s easier for the wood to turn than in summer when you’re putting on a new stove or heating up your home.
3. Painted Fence
