While we’re in lockdown, it can be difficult to adjust to a new normal, particularly if you are working from home or you are currently out of work. Everyone is learning to get used to spending more time at home with the family and understanding a new way of muddling through each day!
If you are a dab hand at woodworking, you might be thinking of ways you can utilise your woodwork skills around the house and keep busy! With that in mind, Calderbrook Woodworking Machinery offer 4 DIY projects that you could undertake during lockdown and improve your home while keeping yourself active.
If you require some tall seating in your home, creating your own bar stools could be the perfect solution! Whether you have a cheeky bar in your home, or you need some new kitchen stools for the breakfast bar, why not create your own stools through woodwork?
You don’t need many materials or supplies to carry out this project, and you could even save yourself some money by doing it yourself! Use your new stools for something practical like kitchen seating, or create a fun bar area in your living room for some lockdown entertainment.
A lot of home renovation projects have probably come to a standstill due to the lockdown and many workers unable to go to work. Why don’t you undertake some renovation yourself? For example, if your kitchen is looking a little worn, why not update it with new wooden worktops?
Utilise your woodwork skills and bring a rustic, unique look to your kitchen with new kitchen countertops and impress the family.
If you’ve been wondering how to improve the storage available in your home, grab your woodworking tools and create some DIY shelves. Putting up shelves is a great way to keep books, trinkets and even children’s toys tidy, giving everything a place. Consider where your shelves would be best situated; the kid’s room or perhaps even the living room.
Shelves are one of the easiest things to build, but just make sure you check the walls first to ensure they are safe and able to support the shelves!
As we draw closer to summer, you may be looking forward to at least being able to spend some of lockdown in your garden. Make sure your patio area is prepared for the summer season by creating your own patio furniture!
From a simple bench to a full dining set, test your abilities and create some great outdoor furniture for you and your family to enjoy in the coming weeks.
