Why exactly do you want a DIY woodworking design? This is the first of many questions that you should be asking yourself when you get into woodworking. Well truthfully this is only the first of many questions that you should be asking yourself. What kind of projects that you want to build? Am I taking this up as a hobby or a profession? How much time and money can I afford to commit to my woodworking projects? If you have (at least) this much figured out you will have a lot less time trying to figure out what kind equipment you should be purchasing
As an alternative, you can buy a DVD full of plans, or subscribe to a service online. This can increase the number of woodwork designs at your fingertips up into the thousands. The plans are normally compiled by a small team of woodworkers, so your presentation and instructions will be of great quality. Using either of these systems may come packaged with a search function, so you can search for specific plans. Instead of paging through a table of contents, you will be presented with a list of plans on the specific projects you are interested in building.
A v-groove router lets you turn what may otherwise be a plain project in to one that is beautifully detailed. Whether you are building a bench, country cabinet, bookcase or something altogether different, you can dress things up immensely by adding a unique touch. If you’re really feeling creative, you can even create tongue and groove boards to install diagonally across your entry door – beautiful!
The one thing I make sure is that I always have a good plan or design to follow. No matter what it is I’m making and no matter how many times I’ve made it before, I always refer back to my design plan.
If the other options do not appeal to you or you do not have the time to create your own designs then the obvious solution is to download one of the many project plans available online
We all know that there are a huge number of magazines like ”popular woodworking magazine” available at our regular book stalls concerning this topic. One advantage of these is that once you have a magazine, you will get a complete photograph of what you are making and how it should look. This might not be the case if you get the designs by some other method. The magazines also have some useful resources on where to get tools in your local area, which can also be a very handy information.
