Handyman wood projects include a traditional Adirondack chair, basic bench, entryway storage unit, CD wall cabinet, and coat rack. Other ideas are a storage cabinet, garden bench, jewelry box and basket stand.
The Family Handyman has instructions for many wood projects online. For instance, the plans for an Adirondack chair include a matching love seat. The basic bench is completed within four hours and is useful for painting, scaffolding or sitting. The entryway organizer has hooks for jackets and hats, as well as smaller sections for shoes, sports equipment, books and other objects. A woodworker needs a band saw to make a jewelry box from a single block of wood.
