Quick and Easy Woodworking Projects
As a woodworker, I love what I do. But sometimes I don’t even want to think about spending days or weeks in the shop laboring over a long project. Sometimes I want the instant gratification that comes from a quick build. That’s why I’ve put together this collection of woodworking projects that you can tackle in a day or a weekend. They make great gifts or items you can sell on Etsy or at craft fairs — and believe me, there’s nothing like accomplishing something quickly to really reenergize you.
