5 Unique Woodworking Ideas for Beginners

Updated: Feb 7, 2023

Woodworking is an incredibly rewarding hobby that can last a lifetime, and be passed down through generations of sons and daughters. And, it requires little more than basic woodworking skills, a battery of power and hand tools, some free time, and a little inspiration (that’s where we come in).

Woodworking can be intimidating, but you don’t have to start big with something like an entertainment center. Start small and, once you feel comfortable, work your way up. There are so many great ideas perfect for beginner woodworkers, and these are some of our favorites!

Wooden Doormat

Home is where the heart is, so you may as well make its entrance look good. You can create your very own wooden doormat, a great way to dry off wet shoes without getting a soggy mat. Stylish, functional and budget-friendly!

Wooden Sofa Sleeve

If you live in a small or minimal space, it may not be practical to add end tables or TV trays everywhere in your space. Sofa sleeves can save the day. Sofa sleeves make it easy to lounge on the couch with a hot cup of tea.

Bathtub Tray

As many of you know, bathtime isn’t just for getting clean. Add a good book, a glass of wine, and your favorite candle and you’re set for a relaxing evening of self-care. It’s hard to accomplish all of this without a handy bathtub tray. That’s where your woodworking skills come in.

Wooden Key Holder

Let’s face it, we all lose our keys at one point or another. It’s time to put an end to the frantic searching with some DIY! Use beginner woodworking skills to create this wooden key and mail holder to hang in your entryway for a handy (and adorable) key storage solution.
