Want to get into woodworking but not sure where to start? Here are some simple designs to get the creative juices flowing. They also make great gift ideas (and since the holidays are just around the corner, we know you’re starting to panic) – who wouldn’t love a bath caddy or wall planter made just for them?
This visually simple yet stunning hanging planter is perfect for small living spaces so you don’t need big planters cluttering up the floor. Just make sure you have an easy way of reaching all the plants in order to water them – or use air plants, which only require occasional misting.
Wall Planter/Cutlery Holder
Another great planter idea that’s a bit more beginner-friendly. You could make 2-3 of them and put them in a column. The possibilities for indoor herb gardens are endless.
Driftwood Candle Holders
Obviously, you aren’t limited to using only driftwood – any old wood with an interesting appearance and lots of character would work perfectly for this idea. Consider using tea lights or containers to hold melting wax. Or don’t, if that’s the look you’re going for.
Pallet Garden Walkway
An incredibly simple yet aesthetically pleasing solution for your gardens – all you have to do is lay down some pallet wood. The slight variations in how they’re lined up make a big difference in terms of creating visual interest.
Simple Bath Caddy
There are more advanced designs, but you really can’t beat how quick and easy this one is. Four pieces of wood, four screws, some furniture varnish, and you’re set. Warm beer because of the hot bath? Never again.
Barn Board Table with Hairpin Legs
Another useful and super minimalist design that is easy to assemble. Hairpin legs are trendy right now, and come in many different sizes and finishes.
