The beauty of this project lies in the simplicity. All you need are 3 pieces of wood of your choice (though we must admit natural hardwoods will look incredible), sanding block, clamps, wood glue and finishing product. The hardest step of the whole tutorial is measuring – as always, measure 9 times, cut once! You wouldn’t want to finish your project and then realize it doesn’t have enough space to fit your DVD player, would you?
Another wooden item that I love very much is a beautiful mobile holder. You can see one in the image below. These things are not only beautiful, but they can comfortably hold any sized mobile and ensure proper safety. Another amazing thing is that they can be built in many shapes and sizes, as and how you need it. You can see some more examples at the source below
Building a Wooden Office Desk Organizer is an easy task for a professional woodworker, but not so much for normal people like you and me. But that doesn’t mean you cannot do this. Two years ago, I had almost no woodworking experience, but now I make most of my household and office wooden items by myself. This saves me a lot of money. And believe me when I say this; you can also manage to make wonderful wood items with a little practice and some woodworking experience.
Add some beauty and charm to your dining room table and use up those scrap 2X4 pieces at the same time. This centerpiece is so easy to make and it is absolutely gorgeous when it’s finished. It’s just a little box that you build from your scrap 2X4 pieces. Once you stain it, and maybe distress it a bit, and add your vases, it transforms into a beautiful centerpiece that has a really nice rustic look to it.
Have you got an old whiskey barrel at home that you haven’t used for ages? If yes, this project is for you. You can make a really beautiful coffee table from that old whiskey barrel in a few easy steps. Apart from a coffee table, whiskey barrels can also be used to build several other furniture items. But that is a talk for later. Here, we will discuss how to make a coffee table from a whiskey barrel.
This potting bench is the perfect addition to your garden area and it’s a really easy build from those 2X4s. It has space for everything! If you’re an avid gardener then you need a sturdy bench to work up those seeds and prepare them for planting, right? This one is really sturdy and really cheap and easy to build. Plus, it just looks really good sitting next to the house or on the deck.
If you’ve ever done a woodworking project, you know that there are going to be scrap pieces of wood left over. You can turn those scrap 2X4 pieces into these lovely candle holders that fit a tealight candle perfectly. Just cut your candle holders all to the same size, use a drill bit to create the hole for the tealight candle and then sand and stain. Or, you can leave them plain if you prefer that great rustic look.
When neither paint nor a two-tone look is suitable, I buy unfinished stock cabinets like the ones shown in this article. Home centers usually carry one style only and one wood species only (typically oak). For the projects shown here, I used 12-in.-deep “upper” cabinets. The cabinets you find may not be exactly like mine, so you may have to alter the measurements given in my plans.
With a pencil and a protractor, divide the larger disc into 30-degree wedges to create 12 center lines for the bottle indents. Center and trace the smaller disc on top of the larger disc. Next, with a drill press, drill 3/8-in.-deep holes on the 12 center lines with the 1-7/8-in. Forstner bit, spacing them between the disc’s outer edge and the traced circle. Next, divide the smaller disc into 60-degree wedges and drill six more 3/8-in.-deep holes with the Forstner bit.
