For the beginning woodworker
Furniture Woodworking is one of the easiest things to do. After a little time has passed of course, and you've
gotten a little experience under your belt! Furniture Woodworking really is a fairly simple thing to do, but
it's not necessarily for the beginning woodworker. With such things as joints and properly angled corners
needed you might want to start with something else.
Then again if you're
adventurous and don't actually intend to use the cabinets you build anywhere in a prominent place you should be
alright. The first thing to do in this case is to get a plan or a design of the cabinet type you want. For your
first attempt at Furniture Woodworking you might want to think about starting off with something fairly
Maybe even look at Furniture
Woodworking without doors on them, which basically translates to shelving if you think about it. On the other hand,
Furniture Woodworking with the doors on them can help you gain experience in the long run and will prepare you for
what further explorations into the world of cabinetry.
Since you've now started off with a suitable design or plan, the next
thing you want to do is to move on to the next stage of assembling your materials. These will include not only your
lumber but also your tools, and your nails and joint fixings etc.
After that if you don't already
have one, you'll need to clear out a suitable space for you to work in, somewhere with plenty of light and where
you won't mind the sawdust collecting. You'll also want to make sure that it's off the beaten path as you won't
want to clearing out your things away always to make room for everything else.
At the very least you'll want
to keep your workspace cluttered for a few days yet until you finish Furniture Woodworking and whatever else it
you're going to be doing. After that the next step you'll have to take is in the sawing and the measuring and the
marking, although not necessarily in that order.
After you have everything
marked off and sawn to the correct lengths the next thing you'll want to do is to start assembling your cabinets.
That involves gluing in some cases and driving in nails and screws and other such things.
The last thing on your list for Furniture Woodworking
involves finishing the piece off. This is usually accomplished by applying a clear coat or a wood varnish or even
painting it to the color you want. After that you're good to go and you if you've taken your time with this cabinet
and done a really good job, it might look like you've been Furniture Woodworking for some time!
