Learning the art of woodcraft is not an easy feat. I'll admit that I started this journey thinking the my biggest hurdle would be finding the funds to purchase the increasingly expensive tools and machines. Turns out I was very wrong. The real struggle is building the skills to problem solve the various cuts and joints when designing and building a project.
This bench is one of the very first large woodworking projects I ever took on. Looking at it you might be thinking (just as I did) that this is a simple project with very easy cuts. Well, you're right...kinda. To make this all you need is a circular saw and drill. But what makes this more difficult than it looks is planning out each cut, how each piece will be jointed together, and how you're going to clamp the pieces together to keep them straight and square while you screw them in. All of this while trying to to be safe is a real challenge.
But if you're looking for something to do while quarantined at home, woodworking is a fantastic way to take up your time. And it really doesn't have to take up your money. There are countless videos on YouTube on how to carve wood with a simple set of carving knifes. I haven't done this...yet...but it could really be a lot of fun! I recommend it and will even try it someday as well.
