14 Beginner Building Projects that are simple & easy for the beginner craftsman. There are projects for inside and outside of your home.

I have a deep love of creating crafts and updating various spaces in my home using wood and simple power tools. I often have people telling me that they could never recreate my projects because they have never used any tools before – but I am here to bust that myth for you with these 14 Beginner Building Projects that are simple & easy! 14 Beginner Building Projects - Simple & Easy

I have never had any kind of training in woodworking or the sort but by being a sidekick to my husband hile we renovated our first home and then again on our second home and now on our third, I feel I have a whole lot less fear and a whole lot more desire to create! After all, you have to begin somewhere. It’s all about messing up and learning form your mistakes…and believe me, I have messed up royally on several projects…and then I quit and add it to my scrap wood pile! …and that’s OK!! Bob Vila didn’t become the expert woodworker he is today by never making a mistake! 

So get courageous, grab a few basic tools (screw driver, hammer, level) and get creating!! You are going to be so glad that you did! TIP: Home Depot and Lowes will cut your wood for you!!! So you don’t even need a saw!!

    Love your ideas on the BARN DOOR.

    Because that is my next project and your Cheap expense wise was the best I have seen so far.

    I want to remove the present regular doors and just reuse them where there is a need cause my house is old and there are doors like bathroom and bedroom doors that need to be replaced to a barn door creatively without buying another wood door. Therefore enlarging the more space. That is where I am.

    1. Thank you! I can’t wait to see what you create!
