Easy First Projects for the DIY Woodworker

wood shelves

Practice makes perfect when woodworking

Have you always admired the wood craftsmanship of others, but you weren’t sure you had the skills?

Woodworking is a hobby that allows you to build your skills through projects, and if you are a do-it-yourselfer anyway, you’ll like the results you’ll see while you’re using your creativity. While you may have to work up to more complex projects such as a bed with intricate carvings, you probably have the skills to do some simple projects. We’d recommend:

  • Shelves
  • A magazine rack
  • A children’s play table

If you’re just starting out, start with materials such as pine or plywood that can be forgiving and relatively inexpensive. As your skills grow, you’ll be amazed by all the wood choices available. It’s a fun challenge to find the wood that suits your project.

Schutte Lumber has been helping everyone from hobbyists to major contractors for generations. We can help you choose the wood and tools that will help you get started on your next project.
