More detail on specific types of woodworking
Carpentry is woodworking that involves constructing, repairing, and installing building frameworks and related structures made from wood. It includes framing houses, laying decks for homes and other forms of construction involving timber as the primary material. Common carpentry tools include saws, hammers, chisels, measuring tape, levels and braces.
Furniture making is a craft or trade involving the design, manufacture and sometimes restoration of furniture items. It often requires an individual to have experience in different techniques for shaping wood such as laminating, carving and sawing. Furniture making may require specialized tools such as jigsaws, routers, drill presses and biscuit joiners if more complex shapes such as curves are desired. Finishing techniques are also used to ensure a smooth finish on the completed furniture piece.
Woodturning involves using a lathe to create symmetrical pieces from blocks of wood or pre-formed wooden blanks. Woodturning utilizes handheld tools such as scrapers and gouges in combination with the lathe to create bowls, vases, spindles and lids among other items. Different turning operations such as boring can also be performed on the lathe with some experience in order to achieve the desired outcome.

For this project, you will need a miter saw, wood glue, wood screws, wood clamps, and a few lengths of wood. Start by measuring and cutting the pieces of wood to their respective sizes for the frame. Using the miter saw will allow to get perfect 45 degree edges for connections and create uniform corners when putting it together. Glue the pieces according to your measurements then clamp them in place until they have completely dried. Once everything is set in place and dry, take some small countersunk screws and affixing all the corners together by screwing them into place through the edges of each piece of wood framing them together. The cost depends on which types of woods are chosen but basic pine or cedar should be relatively inexpensive to purchase at your local home improvement store.
