Just like any projects, it starts with a plan. So you might want to ask yourself, “What do you want to make?” It should be something that you are interested in, something that can lead your frustration to a beautiful creation.
Let’s start with a simple box. You can make it your jewelry box, treasure box, or utility box. You can customize a wooden box based on your desire.
- Using the table saw, trim the plywood and make straight edges.
- Mark the measurements. For this box, it will be 6 inches high, 12 inches long and 6 inches wide.
- Prepare the table saw by setting the woods measurement and start cutting.
- Make sure to have identical square corners, and then cut the plywood together by 12 inches long. Cut the ends by ¼ less of 6 inches because it will be set inside the box.
- Cut dados into the top, bottom, front, and back of the wood.
- Put the box together. Make sure that all dados were cut exactly before securing the box using glue.
- You can use staple gun around the box for an even more security. Then using sandpaper, rub the plywood to make it smooth.
- If you want to add a lid, just get plywood and cut the ends and sides by 5 inches.
- Put some hinges on the back of the lid to hold it in place when you lift it. You can also make a handle to place on the top of the lid so it will be easier to open. Or even a hook to make it your own secret box.
Want to make breakfast in bed? This wooden serving tray is one of the easiest to make for beginners yet the most practical one.
- Cut the board by its length of 18 inches and width of 3 inches for the bottom boards. And the side boards by the length of 18 inches and width of 3.25 inches. The front and back on the top side should overlap to get a cleaner look.
- Plane all the bottom pieces with your desired thickness, and do it also with the side pieces.
- Cut the slots for jointing biscuits and attached it with wood glue and biscuits. When it dried, glue the sides on.
- Place the board in place using bar clamps to make the bottom of the tray.
- Drill holes for the handles of the boards, and screw it afterward.
If you want to make your dinner extra special and romantic, candles are very helpful. Candle holders are used widely not only in the dining area but also in bedrooms and bathrooms. So here’s how to make one.
- Cut 3 pieces of plywood using a 47 mm hole saw. Enlarge one hole using the 41 mm hole saw. Fit the candle to make sure that it’s the right size.
- Using sandpaper, smooth the inside and outside surface of the woods. Wash them after to get rid of dust and let it dry.
- Put the pieces together using wood glue in a decorative shape to add style to your candle holder. Put some pressure when putting them together until it dries completely.
- Put some oil on it and let it rest for at least 10 hours. After that, wipe the excessive oil to achieve the finished product.
From the name itself, you’ll be left wondering how it is done. It’s not magic, it’s science. You just have to find balance in cutting the angle and the position of the bottle and all your guests will be left amazed.
- Using a pencil, mark down the measurements. Take the tape measure and measure 14 1/8 inches down, and then draw a straight line from edge to edge. Turn over the board and measure 13 ¾. Then another straight line.
- Turn the wood on the edge and connect the line from front to back to make a 27-degree angle. Cut it exactly using a chop saw.
- Create an “x” by measuring 3 1/8 inches from the top and 1 5/8 inches on one edge.
- Use the hand drill and 1 ½ inch bit to cut a hole.
- Use the medium sandpaper to smoothen surface and the fine sandpaper after.
- Paint the wood with whatever color you prefer. You can also use stain and finish if you want.
- Now take your favorite wine and put the mouth through the hole, adjust the location of the neck and body of the bottle to find its balance, and voila!
Who doesn’t love to take a selfie or a groupie every now and then? We are all guilty of this habit, and what’s the best way to reminds us those moments is to put them in frames. You can keep one for yourself but this is actually a great gifts idea.
- Palm router with a rabbet bit
- Biscuit joiner and wooden biscuits
- Mending plates and hanging hardware
- Use a standard size of the frame as a measurement for the wood boards. Cut it exactly the same width and length so that the corners match.
- Using a speed square and tape measure mark each piece of your frame and cut it using a miter saw. Try to fit the four 45-degree boards to be sure.
