Ever wonder what to make while woodworking? It’s easy to run out of ideas from time to time, even the experts do. Many woodworkers begin working on massive projects but they quit halfway because there’s not enough motivation to finish it. This might have even happened to you once or twice.

They also help build up your self-confidence in your skills with woodworking, and one day the bigger projects will be as easy as a small wood project. Another benefit of a small wood project is they are much, much cheaper than anything else. At last a simple way to woodwork without having to break the budget.
Now its time to make sure you have a quiet place of your own, somewhere you can work on a small wood project without interruptions. Getting an at home workstation up and running is one easy way to make things much easier, just make sure you have all your tools on hand. Now when you work with power tools you won’t need to worry about injury if someone walks in and surprises you.
As with most woodworking projects, a small wood project can bring many unique safety problems. Some pieces of wood can snap off and go flying, just remember to always have:
-A pair of safety goggles. To protect your eyes from sawdust and wood.
-A facemask. Better than goggles simply because the rest of your face is out of harms way.
-Gloves preferably thicker. Protects your hands from many different things.
This list only covers the very basics; always remember to be careful when working with wood.
