Easy Woodworking Projects for DIY Beginners

If you’re just getting started with DIY, you’re going to want to try these easy woodworking projects! Lots of options using basic tools.

What is a good first woodworking project?

My advice is to start with something that has a lot of right angles! You’ll want a project with simple, straight cuts and no-nonsense ways of joining the wood together. 

Where can I get free woodworking plans?

I get them from a variety of sources – bloggers, magazines, and manufacturer sites. I’d check Pinterest, and lots of websites for the tools have sample projects you can make with them (like Rockler, Kreg Jig, etc).

What can I make out of wood to sell?

Once you get the hang of woodworking, you can sell just about anything you make!
