Rustic Bench + Shoe Storage

Simple Workbench + Shelves

Working on the ground or an unstable surface can cause a lot of frustration and mistakes. A sturdy workbench can be one of the best investments that will provide a great building experience for years to come.

Difficulty: Beginner
Simple Workbench + Shelves

Rustic Bench + Shoe Storage

A bench with shoe storage is a great way to organize almost any room of your house, whether it’s a mudroom, a garage, or a front entry. This simple, rustic utility bench with a storage shelf underneath for shoes is a simple way to bring a little order into your life.

Difficulty: Beginner
Outdoor Planter

Outdoor Planter

Planters are a great way to spruce up a porch or patio and add a decorative touch to your outdoor space. They can house a variety of flowers, shrubs or grasses and offer a lot of flexibility to move between a deck or a porch. And once you’ve built one, you can build a number of them.

Difficulty: Beginner
Floating Shelf + Storage

Floating Shelf + Storage

You can find a need for a shelf just about anywhere. They’re a great combination of décor and functionality…especially if you have a hidden drawer! A floating shelf design is a really clean way to pull this off, but has a few challenges we’ll cover during this build.

Difficulty: Intermediate
Coffee Table + Drawer

Coffee Table + Drawer

A coffee table is an essential piece of furniture for any home. It’s a place to put your feet up after a hard day’s work, where you can set your beverage on a coaster of course, or where that giant bowl of popcorn sits when everyone settles in for family movie night.

Difficulty: Intermediate
Bookshelf + Doors

Bookshelf + Doors

Bookshelves are a very common project that can take on a wide variety of forms from free standing to built-ins. They’re a great way to add additional storage to a space or a display for décor or collectables.

Difficulty: Intermediate
