Beginner or Pro Will Enjoy These
You might be a beginner or a pro, regardless you will enjoy these five simple woodworking projects. Woodworkers enjoy the feel of the woods they mold into useful objects. Part of the feeling of well being the woodworker enjoys
comes from giving others a piece of themselves each time they share their work with others. The five simple roads to self-satisfaction are:
1. The solid wood Picture Frame
Nothing makes a house a home more than having the walls adorned with framed works of art or pictures and portraits of family members. These are the things which give your home a personality all its own and without speaking at all make your visitors feel at home too.
This doesn’t need to be a large project, but rather one like this simple bookcase. This is a lovely little bookcase that I wrote about in my previous article. It is a true piece of furniture and could appropriately be placed in the living area or in the bedroom to accommodate your night time reading.
3. Set of Wall Shelves
One of the least expensive and most decorative way to show off your walls is with a handsome floating wall shelf or one more substantial depending upon the space available and the size of the room. Narrow floating shelves are best for narrow areas, while a larger room would be best for the heartier wall shelves. Either shelf type can be a simple project with a little imagination, some stain or paint, and some quality shelf plans.

4. A Decorative Address Sign or Plaque
A decorative address sign which is coordinated with the style of your home or an address plaque hung on the front of your home will add value and make a statement that you care. Either of these is relatively simple, but the degree of difficulty is your choice.
5. A Bird Feeder or Birdhouse
A bird feeder or a birdhouse are great projects and will bring wildlife to your yard and can be enjoyed forever. Take a moment to visit my other sites on Bird Feeder Plans and the one on Birdhouse Plans. As you can probably tell, I love my home, my woodworking, and my back yard complete with my
very own birdhouses and bird feeders.
If you read our “About” page, you know I’m probably a girl with a name like “Judy”. And, you would be right. I bring this up only to encourage the other girls who might be reading my woodworking blogs. Woodworking is like sewing with really heavy materials and needles. Woodworking is an art to most of us, and as such, with the right tools you will easily be able to build anything you can imagine and still be a lady.
