You have decided the time has come for you to start creating. You have always had this hankering to get stuck in and build something worthwhile. You fancy yourself as a pretty handy woodworker but something is just holding you back. You just don’t quite feel confident enough to make that start.
After all dressed lumber is not cheap these days and you don’t want to be seen to be wasting money by building mistakes. If you only had someone to mentor you and give you enough tips to get started. You have even spent time with your mate who is an avid woodworker and watched him produce some great projects but still lack that confidence to make a start.
Well your time has come. It is all very easy now when you get a hold of the latest woodworking patterns and plans. They are not even expensive and some of the lists of plans contain literally thousands of projects for you to browse through.
These range from the beginner right through to the advanced woodworking pro plans. Each plan comes with easy to follow step by step instructions for you. You can’t go wrong and will find it so easy to start producing high quality woodworking projects once you make that start.
Once you have selected your project you will be given a material list so you can go to the hardware and get all your materials at once right down to the last nail and screw. Then you go to instruction number one and follow the step by steps. You don’t have to worry about the whole thing. Just concentrate on the first step and then the next step etc. Your project will take shape before you know it and soon you will have it sitting in front of you complete.
The trouble with most plans of the old days was they were designed for the pro. The pro builder can visualise the completed project as he goes so that all the steps he completes fit together. If you are a beginner it is hard to see the big picture so we often miss a step and end up with a mess.
When you use the step by step instructions you will get it right every time and as you gain experience will eventually be a pro woodworker too. So make that start and check out some of the woodworking patterns now.
We all know that we spend a big part of our life in bed. So our bed has to be comfortable. Judging by the number of bed retailers there are these days it must be a popular purchase. I suppose people change their beds as often as they change their cars so there are a lot of beds being purchased.
All the old beds either go to the secondhand stores or to the welfare stores to those of us who are a little less fortunate. I know that a lot of people will buy a secondhand bed from a welfare store and make it do them for most of their life. And then there are always new fancy beds coming out with all sorts of built in features so one has to regularly upgrade.
If we are looking for our next woodworking project then we could do well to choose a bed. Some like to have a bed as more than a sleeping place but also to show off as a fancy piece of furniture. I don’t know how many people have regular visitors to their bedroom to show off their latest bed but there must be a few. Then some people, when you visit for the first time, will say, ‘let me show you around’ and invariably take you to their bedroom to show off the bed.
So the bed has to be a good one and can not be too fancy. Your woodworking skills will be handy here as a major part of the bed is the head board and can be as fancy as you like. With the range of nice lumber about now and the router tools for carving we can have something really nice.
Then the base board is usually something to match but in a smaller version. The actual base part of the bed is set for you as all mattresses come in standard sizes whether double, queen or king size.
Maybe you you get really adventurous and build a round bed or even heart shaped and have a mattress made to suit. You cab opt for the old four poster style with the lace curtains and is always popular.
Head boards can have all sorts of extras built in too such as an alarm clock with music or even an automatic coffee maker so you wake to the smell of freshly brewed coffee. The base board too can have extras such as blanket boxes built in so get to it and fire your imagination.
There are plenty of woodworking patterns and plans out there so check them out for your new bed today.
