A woodworker’s toolkit is incomplete without a table saw.
It is an indispensable tool that can be used to make a myriad of things. Here we have put together a list of 8 things that you can make using a table saw.
Even if you’re a beginner woodworker, you may find a thing or two that you can make from this list.
Now, let’s get back to our woodworking projects.
A Cutting Board
Surprise your missus with a handcrafted cutting board for her kitchen. This is an easy and safe project for beginners, which won’t cost a lot of money as well.
You need a hardwood board that’s cut as per your choice of length and width. Drill holes in it for easy grip and hanging. Finally, sand the board to smooth it and finish it off with a nice coat of wood sealant.
A Storage Box
Another quick weekend DIY project would be building a storage box. You can either build a rectangle or a square wooden box. It’ll require you four pieces and a bottom slab.
Determine the height, width, and depth of your storage box before buying your plywood. Although the box-making process is simple, I would recommend you watch a tutorial or go through the steps before getting started.
A Bird Feeder
After perfecting your woodworking skills, you may take on a more challenging project. One such moderately challenging project is building a bird feeder.
However, it’ll require finesse and a few other tools along with a table saw. Undertaking this project will allow you to get comfortable working with different tools and plywood dimensions.
Once you’ve successfully finished this project, you’ll have a beautiful feeder for your little birdies.
A Wall Shelf
If you feel confident in your woodworking skills, try your hand at building a custom wall shelf. Using inexpensive materials like plywood, you can create a wall shelf that will be a great space-saver in your home.
You can opt for a standard horizontally stacked shelf or experiment with different shelf designs.
A Planter Box
Readymade planters can be expensive, but DIY-ing it is a lot cheaper. So, save a few bucks and build exquisite wooden planters for your garden space. Bear in mind you’ll need a range of different tools and materials for this project.
However, it isn’t an impossible thing to achieve. You can watch a few tutorials to get an idea of its construction process. Also, choose a specific and unique design for your planter box.
A Garden Table
This project is for the virtuoso woodworkers. Nothing livens up a patio like a chic garden table does, especially if it’s handcrafted. It’s not a difficult project to complete but will require a great deal of finesse.
And if you’re still an intermediate woodworker, you may risk injuring yourself. Once you’ve succeeded in this project, you can take on the journey of building different furniture pieces.
Yet another simple project that requires minimum skills and money. If you’ve built a wall shelf or a bird feeder, then building a bookshelf is a piece of cake for you.
You’ll need more tools for this project as well. Plus there are so many styles of bookshelves from horizontal to cubed to hexagonal and even ladder-style. So, choose your design and start building a home for your books.
Finally, give yourself a valuable gift by building a wooden workbench. Every woodworker needs a multi-purpose workbench in his/her workshop. This workbench will serve all your woodworking needs, store your tools, materials, and plans.
You can either go for a mobile workbench with attached tires or a standard one with lots of storage space.
