5 Amazing Things
You Can Make Out of Wood

How to make woodworking magic

Woodworking is a skill that is being lost to the ages. While it’s still taught in most schools, it is steadily dying out to the digital age. Never fear though, because the masters of the craft are still around. Woodworking has an image problem though. Mostly stemming from a lack of understand of what it’s for.

So let’s take a look at five amazing things you can make out of wood. Let’s see if it piques your interest.

Crafting different things from wood can be an amazing hobby, especially since wooden items are rare, but appreciated by collectors. (Image from: Wikimedia)

Toys

Yes, wooden toys aren’t going to astonish an eight-year-old in the age of video games and tablets. For younger children, they still hold and appeal though. There’s nothing like seeing a young child playing with something you made with your hands. You can make little soldiers or horses. You could also make blocks with the alphabet engraved on them.

You could also make them for adults. There is a contingent of adult toy collectors who enjoy the vintage style to these wooden toys.

Ornaments

Whether you’re crafting them for a specific holiday or not, crafting ornaments can be very fulfilling. Not only can you create them for your amusement, but you can try selling them on too. If you get a steady supply of wood from timber merchants, you could even start your own little business.

Whether you’re selling them on a craft table or online, you could make a nice little earning.

Statues

Sort of the space between toys and ornaments. Fine wooden statues and statuettes are a the subject to quite a collector’s market. While they tend to go for older statues, a lot of dealers can admire the craftsmanship. If you’re good enough, you might find a buyer for your creations.

Of course if you don’t want to sell, they could make a nice addition to your home.

An excellent way to combine your woodworking capabilities with potential to earn money is to produce popular game sets, such as this chess et made out of cedar.

Masks

Whether you’re making them for a local amateur dramatics group or your personal amusement, creating masks is creatively fulfilling. Not only are you creating something with functional use, you’re also expressing yourself.

If anything, you’re creating art. Expressive masks can be tough to get right and take an extensive study of the facial structure, but when you get it right, you feel so accomplished.

Woodworking masks has its place in cultural traditions around the world. Whether you’re creating something realistic or with a surrealist expressionist feel, you know that you’re adding to that culture.

Furniture

Not for the faint of heart. Creating furniture is the world away from whittling little ornaments in your kitchen. It takes a practical knowledge of design and the skills to put it to use.

That said, don’t let that put you off. Part of learning a skill is being able to challenge yourself with it also. Why do something if you don’t aim to master it?

Start off with something easy like a chair. It’ll be made of interlocking parts glued and screwed together. So long as the measurements are precise it’s hard to go wrong. For the experienced, try sofas. The upholstery might not be your forte, but there’s always time to learn.
