A beautiful looking wooden plaque that matches a rustic home is an easy woodworking project you might like to try. Start out by purchasing or making a rustic wall hanging or a simple metal wall plaque. If you wish, add some antiques such as a picture frame or a mirror and decorate it with some decorative items such as buttons, crystals and beads. You can then use a saw and a hammer to make the frame itself. If you prefer, you can paint this project a rich natural color.



Another simple project you might want to try is a small wood shelf or wood organizer. Start with a standard wood shelf or organizer and drill a few holes in the bottom and sides. Then attach a couple of thin pieces of dowels into the holes and then attach a wooden tray to the back. Use a saw to cut out the insides of the tray and then glue the tray into place. You can paint the wood any color you like and then finish it with a metal accent piece such as a metal plate.

Making a wine rack that matches a rustic theme is also quite simple. Start out by taking a standard square tray and adding a curved, lined piece of plywood. Drill several holes into the plywood and then attach a thin piece of rustic scrap wood to one side of the plywood. Glue the rustic scrap wood into place and then glue a knot at the top corner.

Wine rack or shelves can be made even more beautiful with some wire or plastic shelving. Take some standard square tray and draw a line down the center of the back so that you know where to hang the wire or plastic shelf. Drill a few holes on the back side of the tray for the screws to attach to the shelf. Paint the wire or plastic shelf with a coordinating color and then attach to the back of the frame.

Cut six small squares, then use the insides of the squares to support the framework in which the shelves are assembled.

For the next part of this wood projects beginner woodworker’s eye-poise, have someone demonstrate how to assemble the legs and feet. This could be you or a family member. Next, mark the four outside corners of the floor where you would like the four legs to sit and use a spirit level to ensure that the legs will lie flat against the floor.

A few of my favorite furniture pieces have come from a DIY woodworking project. One of my favorites is a new bench I bought that has a teak deep seating. It has a single row of teak deep seating that looks wonderful with an accent chair on either side. I built this bench by myself using a plan that was easy to follow. In fact, I found the DIY woodworking project instructions to be so easy that I considered it my “go to” resource when it came to building furniture.
