10 Free Beginner Woodworking Projects

Simple projects make for a great learning opportunity. Putting the joinery you have practised into a practical project can really help you understand the need for accuracy and square stock.

Under the current circumstances, many of you have reached out to let us know that woodworking has been a welcomed distraction. We’ve put together a selection of free projects mixed from our site and our sister site, Woodworking Masterclasses (you can use your Common Woodworking log in details to access these).

We understand that it is tough to get your hand on tools at the moment, we recommend taking a look at Paul’s ‘Poor Man’s’ tool series where he has written several blogs on how to make your own tools.
