Basic Woodwork Project – The Workbench
For those starting out in woodwork I would recommend as one of your first projects that you build yourself a workbench. The reason, do you want to build all of your future projects on the floor? You may already have an existing workbench and it may even be eminently suitable for woodwork purposes and if that is the case you may not wish to read further. If you do not, then here are some tips that I can offer to help make sure your workbench will be a useful and long-lived part of your workshop.Qualities of Wood
Woodworkers must take a natural material and cut and shape it to the best effect. To this end, the woodworker must appreciate that woodworking is an equal partnership, a coming together of tools, techniques and wood.Building A Garden Shed – Where Do I Begin?
Have you always wanted to build your own garden shed but were concerned that you couldn’t afford it? Or were you perhaps nervous that it would be too complicated to build? It is possible to build a cheap garden shed without destroying your budget, and it’s not even that hard to do.Unique Router Bits Give Life to Your Woodworking Project
A woodworking router is a device used to hollow out or gouge out some part of a piece of wood. The earliest routers were hand-operated devices and similar in appearance to a flat wood plane, except with interchangeable narrow blades as opposed to a large, flat blade.
