Yes, there are some craftsmen who can do superb things with wood (like my brother-in-law), but I am not one of them. The crafts you will find here will be very simple and require few materials. I am an every-day Joe who happens to have a love for all types of wood and adore handcrafted wood items.
I think my love of wood working began many years ago. I bought a small antique trunk at a flea market for $10. It was pretty beat up but I knew it could look awesome so I showed it to my dad. He and I decided to fix it up.
We washed it, sanded it, painted it and varnished it. We then added some red velvet to the inside of the chest and added a new lock. The end result was amazing and I still use that chest to this day. My dad and I took something I had bought for $10 and turned it into something outstanding.
That is when I realized you don't have to be a master wood craftsman to make things out of wood. Now I like to take any scrap of wood I can find and turn it into something decorative. Anyone can do it, just take a look above at the beautiful Christmas decorations my sons made in school.
Saws, planers, hammers, measuring tapes, etc... that is all stuff used for working with wood - but it is used by people much more skilled than me. I am a crafty person and I like scissors, glue, paint, paper, sparkles and stuff like that.
So here are some personal tips for those of you who love wood craft ideas:
Keep those tips in mind, grab your craft supplies, let your Christmas spirit shine, and start making the free wood crafts you see above.
Oh, the chores to contemplate.
