TedsWoodworking Plans and Projects

Who enjoys creating their own little masterpieces? I know a lot of people who do and they find it’s a great way of doing something productive. Maybe you’re new to woodworking and you want an action plan for simple and creative projects to start on.
Here I’ll show you some steps you can take to get prepared for taking on a project to managing a budget to selecting good plans to work on.
Step 1 – Don’t take on a project that has a difficulty of maybe being too big or to detailed for your level of skill. Begin your journey with an easy and manageable project to begin with. This helps you build your skill level and creativity with woodworking.
Step 2 – You can look at some DIY projects that would be great to start on. You could think they seem simple but you’ll be surprised at the variations that come with them in terms of style and design. Some examples are a shoe rack, bird feeder, book case or shelf, letter holder and even a simple pet bed. In time your experience will grow and you can start on more exciting and intricate projects.
Step 3 – If you’re planning to start a woodwork project, do you want to go with design plans? In most times, yes. A good plan will have information like blueprints, measurements for all the pieces of wood for the project, listed tools and materials, and plenty more. Their main purpose is to serve you better in building from start to finish a quality piece or structure.
Step 4 – You can look on the internet or magazines and booklets for woodwork projects. The internet has a vast amount of plans and projects to view with a click of a finger. There are sites that offer 100’s of packages for you to get started on and the level of skill is great for beginners or newcomers and even carpenters and builders.
Step 5 – Its time to budget your woodworking project and implement the plan. You need to visit your local hardware or building supply store and collect all the tools and materials you need to complete the project. Remember every factor relies on your budget and calculate the costs and expenses accordingly.
Step 6 – As you start woodworking, look at the types of wood that would be easy for you to work with. There is pine, balsa and plywood. Being simpler materials they give a good understanding of becoming better with the fundamentals and techniques used by experienced craftsmen.
Step 7 – Before beginning the project check to see if you have everything ready. Last thing you want is to stop in middle of something and then slow you down or worse putting the project aside for another time. This isn’t bad but it can make something that would take a week to build turn into a month or months to finish.
I hope this helps you get into the right frame of mind when working on or starting a project as it has done for me.
Good luck and all the best,
