From woodworker, DIYer, craftsperson or creative, these projects don’t take too long and don’t require too many tools. You can follow the step by step instructions for individual projects if you want guidance or inspiration, otherwise dream big and let your creativity lead the way.
Remember the most important thing is having a go (even if it turns out a bit different than planned) and enjoy tapping into your creativity.
