We thought that we would take a different route if you will.
Instead of making recommendations and sourcing you with expert suggestions on what wood working tools to begin DIY and wood working project life with, we thought we could spur you on with a little inspiration with a few building ideas of our own. Note that these are based on those already given by the experts. We hope you find value and ultimately enjoyment from them.
The idea behind this motivation is so that you never have to restrict yourself out of fear for starting things for the first time or limit yourself when it comes to exercising your own creative license as we recommend that you should. We begin this trip with a little side table. It does not need to be any higher than twenty four inches and not more than 20 inches wide. Legs can be tapered for an artistic look with no more than a hand plane needed to achieve this effect.
A bookshelf, as a first project, will be easy to assemble. It can be a small set with no more than four shelves altogether. Also, keep widths and lengths to a minimum to give yourself a chance to hone your new building skills. And keep your design basic. While you are learning, there is no need to add complexity at this stage. Building a dovetailed box presents novices with an opportunity to build an easy to assemble living room ornament.
It can be created as a design feature easy to hang on the wall. Chairs may be imposing but need not be. You begin this craft by simply building a stool which only requires square joints and angles.
