Woodworking by itself is not for everyone. If you want to learn how to make items and learn how to take them to market, it’s probably not for you. But if you like something that is inexpensive and available to make at home that will become part of your home decor, you might like it just as much.
What do I need to start?
Before you start, you might want some materials. You should have some way of measuring materials.
I use a scale to measure materials, but you can use any scale you like.
Make sure to measure both your feet and your feet and your feet and your feet in inches. If you don’t use an actual measurement system, just find something else to measure. I know that there is a lot of confusion about measurements.
When you put the pieces together, use a straight edge to mark off any excess lumber and edges that will be joining items together in the future. I use a flat edge to make sure I’m marking the exact place for the joining pieces. But if you need something else and you don’t have a measuring device, just use a pencil for this.
You want to mark off your center piece of wood (the edge). Mark it so that the wood between the center piece and the wood next to it in size is the same width as the edge. Then measure the width of the wood between the two pieces and mark that as well.
Then measure again, then divide the width of your center by two (because you’re not using a straight edge), and divide that again. The first division shouldn’t be at the same spot on the side as the side that’s going to be joining them. The second will mark the place for the second joiner.
I usually cut a 5 foot square piece of scrap lumber the size of the side pieces as I’m tracing them together, like so (that’s 1.375″X2″, or about 1/4″X2″, and this won’t be the same width as the wood I’m joining). With your measurements you should have two pieces on your work surface.
With those two sets of measurements, use a knife to cut them into matching size pieces. I cut mine in half for this step. I put the first in one piece and then lay it next to my first set of measurements. Then I lay down on the work, with about an inch between my two pieces. My first set of measurements is where my right
