o The simplest designs in wood are most probably those made through cutting. They require basic drawing and cutting skills. Even if drawing is not among your strengths, you can still go for this kind of designs, by simply transferring them on the piece of wood from a picture, with the help of transparent paper. After the drawing is ready, cut it out, by following the outline. For this kind of project it is recommended to use thin plywood and some sharp little saws. After cutting, you can go on embellishing the woodworking designs you have made by painting and drawing on them. Through this technique, you can craft wall and door hanging decoration items or smaller wooden shapes to use for embellishing other items. For example, you can create flowers and glue them on a wood photo frame.
Do your homework on companies and individuals offering woodworking plans. Look at some of their designs and ask to see a list of customers who have used and commented on their plans. When first beginning with woodworking designs you need to have a certain amount of trust in what design woodwork instructors are showing and telling you
Having clear and accurate designs or woodworking plans will help you avoid making costly and time consuming mistakes. For instance you might be in the middle of your project only to find out that you have made a measurement error or you lack a specific tool required for completing the project. If you have an accurate and easy to understand plan prior to beginning the work you will avoid such inconveniences arising in the middle of the project
o Intricate designs require some advanced skills in woodworking and are usually made through carving. This kind of woodworking designs can also go from simple like basic shapes (circles, squares, hearts, stars etc.) to complex patterns like floral garlands or even scenes or landscapes. The latter require a lot of attention for details and focus. Thus, the best intricate designs are made using sharp cutting tools. Sometimes, additional devices are used for even a more beautiful effect. One such device can be the pyrographer, which helps the crafter make extremely detailed patterns with a fine touch.
Cutting with a table saw: The first challenge that you are most probably going to face is getting a full ¾” Plywood on to the table. You will need an extension or a second table as support so that the plywood sheet can be adjusted properly. Because of the sheer size of most sheets of plywood, pushing them into blades can be difficult and this is the reason why the first cuts are usually rough ones. Once you have cut the sheet into smaller manageable parts, you will have an easier time cutting them. Also remember that when you are cutting with a table saw you should cut with the best face pointing up.
