A Cut Above: 5 Wood Furniture DIYs from 5 HART Ambassadors

Every woodworker starts somewhere. For you, it could be that first birdhouse you built way back when. Or maybe it was that time you looked at a piece of furniture and said, “I could build that!” Whatever the reason, you’re now ready to level-up your woodworking skills and we think our HART ambassadors have the DIY projects you’ve been looking for. 

 

Kitchen Table @rusticgarage__

A handmade, wooden table can bring so much character to your home. This DIY Kitchen Table from @rusticgarage__ is really quite impressive. You’ll need to know a few woodworking techniques to cut out the pieces, but after it’s all assembled, just think how great it’ll feel knowing that you made it with your own two hands.

Herringbone Table Cover @demolition.des

Who doesn’t love a good herringbone pattern? Especially when you see how @demolition.des used it to transform her tabletop into a work of art. This DIY Herringbone Table Cover may look expensive, but only you know how much, or rather, how little it costs! Just wait till your friends and family see it! Be prepared for a lot of “oohing” and “aahing.”

Wooden Bedroom Bench @mollynicolexo

This DIY Wooden Bedroom Bench from @mollynicolexo is a great project, no matter your skill level. The clean, simple lines will definitely pull your bedroom together. For us, what makes this piece a standout is the distressed look. We’re all about it. There’s something about furniture with signs of wear and age that’s comforting. Whatever distressing technique you choose (hammer, chisel, multi-tool, ice pick, you name it) you’re creating a custom piece with tons of character. All for the fraction of the cost of store bought.
