Basic Projects

Introduction: Basic Projects

This really isn't an instructable, but I am fairly new at woodworking and have completed these simple projects. I realize they aren't much to look at but I am very proud of them. I am about to tackle building a platform bed for my daughter which should be a fairly easy project based on instructables I have looked at. I guess mainly I posted so that I could get in touch with others who enjoy woodworking and to possibly get ideas on new projects for around my house. I have a fairly stressful job and woodworking seems to be a great stress reliever for me. Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Hey, welcome to the site!

    I'm a pretty active maker and I dabble heavily in woodworking. Making stuff is my leisure pursuit of choice, and sharing my projects on this site has been a huge outlet for me over the years.

    It's really fun to have a place to share what you make and connect with like-minded builders and tinkerers. Plus, there's a definite element of stress relief that comes from disconnecting from your day-to-day work in the healthy way that making provides. Getting feedback on your projects just adds to the fun!

    Those projects look great! Next time you make something, be sure to snap several photos along the way so you can share a full write-up with us.

    I think you will really like it here!

    woodworking absolutely is a great stress reliever. its fun and challenging and when you complete a project the flaws just make it one of a kind. I'm a cop so I have a lot of work related stress. I live in a duplex so I don't have a lot of space but I make it work with some of these instructables! anyway check out my profile and have a look at my favorites. I have a ton of woodworking instructables in there. good luck to you and happy making.
