Are you considering creating some woodworking pieces to spruce up the look of your home? DIY woodworking is a great idea. Not only does it save you money, it also gives you a huge sense of accomplishment. There’s nothing like watching others enjoy and admire your DIY creations.

But what types of woodworking creations should you make? As it turns out, there’s a lot more you can create than just tables and chairs. We’ve teamed up with WoodworkBoss.com to bring you 7 cool DIY woodworking creations for your home…

1. SHELVES

Whether it’s for books, DVDS or magazines, everyone could use some more shelving storage in their home. However, you don’t have to limit yourself to a standard rectangular shaped bookshelf. There are all kind of cool DIY woodworking bookshelves you can put together. One really cool idea for a bookshelf is to create one that’s in the shape of a tree. Your books can easily be placed throughout the branches.

2. CHESS OR CHECKERBOARD

Game boards purchased from the store are always super flimsy and seem to fall apart after only a few uses. Instead of continuously purchasing new ones, why not take the time to make your own? Not only will a DIY wood game board last much longer, it also looks a lot classier than the cheap name brand board. If you really want to make your game bad extra special, you can woodwork the individual playing pieces as well. This would make an excellent gift for any board game lovers in your family or friend group!

Do wish you could feel like you’re on a date night with your loved one at a fancy restaurant without actually leaving the house? Now you can with a DIY woodworked table for two! This is the perfect piece of furniture to have in your kitchen when you want to enjoy a romantic glass of wine by candlelight without the restaurant price!

4. WOODEN SOFA SLEEVE WITH CUPHOLDER

Ever find yourself sitting on the sofa with nowhere to put your drink? Or, maybe there is a place to set it down, but it’s just too far out of reach, especially when you’re enjoying a lazy Sunday afternoon watching TV.

To solve this problem, you can make a wooden sofa sleeve with a cup holder attached. All you need to do is carve out a piece of wood that fits over your sofa sleeve, then make a hole for the cup holder. This could also make a perfect gift for anyone who works at home and wants to have their coffee handy at all times.

Let’s face it, traditional cradles are pretty strange looking. If you have a baby or know someone with a baby, they will love the uniqueness that this cradle offers.
