Making something with your own hands is an incredible feeling and it’s no wonder that woodworking is an enjoyable thing to do. Do you want to know how to start getting into woodworking projects that are free and easy to get into? I bet you do and it’s not that hard to find what you like either.
Whether you want to start on something simple for the home or a little project for yourself, having a set plan will help you clear your head on what to use, how its done properly and of course making less mistakes.
Here I want to talk about how to go about preparing yourself, looking for free projects and plans, deciding which ones are right for your level of skill and much more.
Woodworking projects and courses can be overwhelming to a newcomer and they can feel a bit intimidated and difficult to start. Think about your level of skill and try to begin on an easier more manageable road to start on. In time, your experience and expertise will grow and you can tackle new and more intricate work.
A good place to look for free projects and plans is you local timber or home improvement supply store. They often stock a series of standard plans and projects for you to look through and take home. Also when you purchase materials or supplies, they can give you project plans as part of deal or incentive. Talk with them with what you have in mind and often they can work something out with you.
Another area is publications and magazines. Ok, so maybe their not really free, but they can have a supersize issue during the popular months and pack a lot of tips, guides and projects for the price of a few dollars. It can be hit or miss with these home and outdoor magazines but you never know until you look through them. I have found many great outdoor projects such bar tables, little benches, pet beds, bird baths, wind chimes, and much more.
There is of course the internet. Looking online is great as you have plenty of sites to go to. The have many, many projects, courses and designs that are packaged together for excellent value and they have a money back guarantee. The best thing is that they give away project plans free of charge as an offer or complimentary gift for signing up. This is quite common and a nice way of bringing you onboard to see more of the site and what their selling.
For example, they can give the plans and designs to make a simple jewelry box. You then go through the plan see what else you need to know to complete the project. This in turn shows you if you need the supported materials they offer and self help guides.
In the end they help you with your woodworking project and you get the self satisfaction of making something yourself.
When you’re ready, make sure you have everything you need. Information regarding measurements, diagrams, illustrations, listed tools and materials needed such as the type of wood being used, and step by step clear instructions. It’s important that it’s all there so you minimize delays and heartache when something’s not right or is missing.
Finding the right plans whether their cheap or free will give you a great experience in woodworking and help you build something you can admire.
All the best,
