Not all DIY furniture projects are terribly difficult. Look over some of the free plans to determine whether you have the tools, the time, and the skills to make your next item of furniture.
DIY Patio Furniture
One of my most recent projects is some patio furniture I made for my son-in-law’s birthday. I have received many compliments from this set, and even a few requests to build more The step by step instructions made it very easy for me to construct. This is one of my favorite DIY furniture peices yet.
One of the things that makes this patio set appealing is the contrast between the top and sides of the
table/benches. I was suprised at how well it turned out.
DIY Coffee Table
Making coffee tables has always been one of my favorite DIY furniture projects to work on. I think it has to do with the size. They are not too small, and not too big. So that makes things a little quicker and easier.
Another thing that makes coffee tables so great is they can really make your living room look good. A nice looking coffee table in the living room is a must.
This coffee table is made from red oak. Both the top and bottom shelves are made from 4 peices (1 per leg).
The project was very easy. It is a good project for those who are just getting started with woodworking. It only requires a basic set of tools and the finished product looks great!

A tool rack is a great way to keep your tools organized. There is nothing worse than not remembering where you left a tool. There are also good for protecting your tools too keep them lasting forever, but keeping them close and easy to get to all at the same time.
The tool rack pictured above is easily made. It only takes about 3 hours to make and it is well worth it. This particular rack is great if you want something that is easy on the eyes and also easy to make. I got the idea of making a tool rack from fine woodworking, then some plans from Ted’s plans (see top)
This rack was made using pocket screws, some pegs, and pine.
