Whether for attracting birds, for mark and recapture tracking or just for the love of woodworking, a bird house is an extremely popular choice for a first project.

Making Sure Your Woodworking Project Is Square

I’m going to tell you how to make sure your project is square. You might need to square a box, a wall to a floor or who knows what… not a problem, because you can use this information on any project that has two parts that you wish to ensure are at right (90 degree) angles to each other. To be sure something is “square” simply means that the pieces involved are attached at a 90 degree angle to one another. Not 89 degrees, not 97 degrees, only 90.

Basic Woodwork Project – The Workbench

For those starting out in woodwork I would recommend as one of your first projects that you build yourself a workbench. The reason, do you want to build all of your future projects on the floor? You may already have an existing workbench and it may even be eminently suitable for woodwork purposes and if that is the case you may not wish to read further. If you do not, then here are some tips that I can offer to help make sure your workbench will be a useful and long-lived part of your workshop.

Have you always wanted to build your own garden shed but were concerned that you couldn’t afford it? Or were you perhaps nervous that it would be too complicated to build? It is possible to build a cheap garden shed without destroying your budget, and it’s not even that hard to do.

Unique Router Bits Give Life to Your Woodworking Project

A woodworking router is a device used to hollow out or gouge out some part of a piece of wood. The earliest routers were hand-operated devices and similar in appearance to a flat wood plane, except with interchangeable narrow blades as opposed to a large, flat blade. Today, it is one of the most versatile tools you will find in any workshop.

The Real Value of Woodworking Plans

If you are just starting out in woodworking, it should be fairly obvious that you would want to work with woodworking plans. Do you realize, though, that even professional woodworkers use woodworking plans to guide them to success? Woodworking plans can even help you evolve into a professional.

Why Kids Prefer Wooden Playhouses

Many children would like to have their own playhouse, especially one which has been built specifically for them rather than being the same as every other playhouse around. Mass produced plastic or resin playhouses are fine, but your child will be much more excited by a wooden playhouse which is uniquely their own. All too many children spend their leisure time indoors surfing the web or watching television, though with the right playhouse, they will be much more likely to be interested in spending time outside getting some much needed fresh air and exercise.
