If you are going to buy a new furniture, you must have selected the one that suits you, in terms of price and design. Those furniture and how your home looks like shows who you really are. But sometimes, things that are available in stores, still doesn’t suits you.
When you feel like it’s time to redecorate you house, you might think that you need to buy a new furniture or new things to make your home looks fresh, new, and different. So you go to the store to find things that you would like to put to give a new vibes to your home. Maybe, you also didn’t find the one that suits you.
You could always make a custom furniture or things. But, also in some occasion, it didn’t go very well because it might end up not looks like what you wanted. So, you might wanna try to make it by yourself. It is hard at first but you will get used to it.
First, I suggest do not make furniture because they are big and need a lot of work. You can start with small things like a simple cutting board. Make a cutting board is really easy and would be a great start to learn how to use your wood router. You could also make any other cutlery, like a bowl, a plate, a spoon, or fork. A tray is also a great idea. I always love new things in the kitchen.
You could also make frames that you could use as a decoration in your home. Frames are also great to be like a first project. The simplest frames only need two kinds of router bits which is basic router bits. So it is great for you to start learning. After that, you could explore and make other shapes and patterns of a frames.
Next home improvement project ideas that would also great is mirror, shelf, table, and chair. Making these things might seems quite hard but no it is not. It is all about the joint, the rabbets, and the dadoes. If you made them in a precise size then it would fit perfectly to each other. Your furniture will be safe and strong, not shaking.
I personally such a huge fans of anything woods related. A wooden book shelf looks really great. Especially those in a very unique shape. A book stand to hold your books on the table will also be a nice touch to your table. Organizing your books will make your home feel more organized and neat. Well, organizing your things actually.
Anyway, if you have quite a lot of things that perhaps a little bit too many when it is on the table or if you keep it in a box or something. Then you might want to consider making a knick knack shelf to properly show them off. This shelf is perfect to put your awards (chalice or medal or certificate), or perhaps any of your collection (CD, DVD, stamps, photos, ticket, camera, anything). Just put on any of things you liked that you wanted to see everyday when you are at home. This shelf is so good and perfect as a nice touch rather than an empty wall. This will also be somewhat your hall of fame in the house.
For those who use laptop a lot, making a simple laptop table that you could use anywhere, on bed for example, is a great idea to use laptop in a more comfortable way. Then if you already master how to use the wood router, you could start with a big project. The key is to always practice and explore more.
Using a wood router might need a lot of practice and quite a few of tools. But it is worth the effort. You could make a lot of things with it that will make your home feeling a little bit more homey. Design and in size as you wish, also in quality that you could afford, and of course it shows your characteristic, you made it yourself, you have a connection to it. Don’t forget to choose the right wood router. There are lots of wood router reviews out there that you could use a reference.
