Making a wooden coaster set can be done in under an hour.  Not only do they stand out as a beautiful accessory to your table, but they also protect that table.  If you have a dining table or coffee table that you built yourself or just a table that you love, you’ll want to protect it with a set of quality coasters.

With a small piece of scrap lumber, you can easily build a handmade cribbage board.  You create a cribbage board with a drill press, cordless power drill, or hand drill.  You also purchase a small cribbage board template that will make your board look like it was professionally done. No surprise this also makes an excellent woodworking project that you can make and sell.

Planters are one of the most commonly-made projects using wood of any kind. That is because they are relatively straightforward to make. With a few simple angled cuts, creating a hexagon wall planter or two can be a great way to make the most of that scrap wood. They are easily customizable as well all it takes is your favorite stain or paint to create the kind of look that suits your style.
