This simple but clever painting bench is the perfect starter project if you’re new to woodworking. It takes just four hours to build and costs less than $20. The multi-purpose design means it functions as a step for reaching high painting jobs, a seat when painting skirting boards or ground-level projects, and a handy seat when you’re ready for a break. It can even double as a table for that all-important coffee and donut to keep your energy levels high. With curved stretchers so it tucks under your arm, this lightweight bench is a handy, useful woodworking project.
Simple Step Stool
No more wobbling about on unstable stools to reach up high. This simple step stool is easy to build and is specially designed to be safe on hard floors such as the kitchen or workshop. Hardwood board is the best material for this little stool (oak is recommended), and it can be sanded and then finished to your own specific preferences. You’ll need to make biscuit joins for this project, so check out how to use a biscuit joiner for a great result.
