5 DIY Woodworking Projects to Try This Weekend

5 DIY Woodworking Projects to Try This Weekend
26/10/2021

Do you love a bit of DIY woodworking but never feel like you have enough time to tackle something new? Have faith, two days is more than enough time!

Some great DIY woodworking projects you can start and finish this weekend: Chopping Board

Rather than buying a new chopping board, why don’t you make your own one? As one of the easiest DIY woodworking projects, you might as well! If you have any leftover wood from kitchen countertops or other creative ventures, you can recycle it by creating a new chopping board. All you need to do it cut it to size, sand and smooth the surface, and rub mineral oil into it – Voila!

L-Shaped Bookends

Another easy woodworking project that can be made from scraps or reused pieces of wood are bookends. You don’t have to follow any specific instructions, just by using the basic L-shape design, it will be able to sit on a shelf holding books up. They can be as rustic as you like and can be customised and decorated in a number of different ways, so have some fun with it this weekend!

Utensil Organiser

Is your cutlery drawer looking a bit messy and unorganised? If you have some patience and are good with measurements, you could build your own utensil organiser. There will be a lot of cutting out and precision will be essential, but you will reap the benefits when you next go looking for a spoon or rolling pin. This same sort of design could also be used for office and stationary supplies too!

Bedside Table

If you can’t find the perfect bedside table for you, then you should make your own; you know exactly what dimensions you need so you won’t worry about running out of room. The construction is relatively simple too as it is common knowledge what a table looks like. Take on the challenge and, if you’re feeling brave, why not add your own twist by attaching legs of a different material.

Coat Rack

Compared to the flat-pack-like projects above, a coat rack is all about the height and angles; as complicated as that sounds, you could easily whip something up at the weekend. If you’ve ran out of space on your hooks or your wardrobe is a bit overcrowded, set up a coat rack to keep your home tidy and organised. You only need a few pieces of wood and to make sure you have enough space to put it in your home.

Do you think these projects sound easy enough? We do! Even if you’re a woodworking beginner, you could definitely try some of these out over the weekend. For your woodworking tools and equipment needs, come and visit one of our stores or contact us today to see how we can help.
