Easy Woodworking Projects

Before I started woodworking to make an income, I was doing just for fun.

I was making my living as s programmer doing iOS iPhone App Development, and getting out to the workshop was a great way to get away from the computer and clear my head.

Also, the self satisfaction I felt from creating something tangible, by hand, was incredible. So I highly recommend that you give it a go.

It's time to make something yourself.

So find some inspiration and get started. Here's a few ideas to get you going.


Instagram is a great way to find what other people out there are making in their woodworking workshops. There are a lot of easy woodworking projects being made and then shared on this social media platform.

Just do a search using hashtags like #woodwork #woodworkingproject #woodworkingtips #easywoodworkingprojects #diywoodwork etc.


Find Plans Online

A great way to get started is to find plans that show an easy step-by-step process to make simple woodworking projects.

A simple search for "woodworking plans" gives you a large choice of free and paid options for projects and plans.


Even plans to build your own shed in a weekend.

Buy a Book

As simple as doing a search on Amazon and finding the one that interests you the most. You will find a huge selection that covers projects from beginner to experienced.

I also have a selection of books on my blog Oz DIY Handyman, that you can check out.


Similar to Instagram, as it deals in images, Pinterest is also a good resource for inspirational wood project images.

Just Give it a Go

Woodworking isn't hard as long as you stick to your skill level, be patient and enjoy the process.

Start with the easy woodworking projects, and you will appreciate that no matter how small your very first woodworking project may be, you will get a house sense of self satisfaction simply because you made it your self.
