Top 100 Easiest Woodworking Projects for Beginners

Woodworking can be pretty intimidating, especially for people who don’t have a clue on when to use chainsaw or which wood to use. Carpentry techniques and power tools are sometimes really complicated, too. Not all experts started their woodworking journey already knowing what a jigsaw is for and how it is different from a reciprocating saw; nor did they perfected their first bevelled cut or got all their measurements correctly.  And who says you have to start by building a massive tree house or a complicated piece, anyway?

Woodworking and DIY projects don’t always have to be on a larger scale, especially for beginners. Start small and easy, then you can inch your way closer to those bigger projects as you learn along the way.

The iron and ironing board are two essential things in a home, and without proper organization, they can take up a big space if you don’t have a good place to tuck them into. Erase that issue at your home and create one!

On the other hand, when placed in a single container, finding that one cute piece of onion among a bunch of apples can take up a lot of time. So what you need is a step up on your storage through a divider, a perfect solution to keep the fruits & veggies fresh and neatly placed in your kitchen. All you need to make your own is turn your scrap wood and minimal experience of woodwork. Easy peasy, right?

This project will walk you through how to make one with a hexagonal design.
