To make wooden furniture at home, you need to find a ductile and malleable wood, but above all useful. You want your furniture to be easy to cut and carve, yet resistant to moisture and scratches. The heat should not be an impediment to your furniture either, so you will give it a final finish with varnish or lacquer to make it more durable. We are talking about three important groups of wood:

  • Synthetic or melamine veneer.
  • Natural veneer such as beech, ash, oak or walnut.
  • Solid wood like pine.

How is it done?

Like all small recipes or instructions, making wooden furniture is a matter of following some instructions in detail. The main thing is to keep in mind the style and type of wooden furniture that we want to make. Choose the wood that best suits what you are looking for and your decoration. On the Internet you will find many sketches and plans with which you will mark your wood before cutting it. Plane the wood clean and re-mark to see if you need to cut more precisely. Assemble all the pieces and give them the final touch with varnish, lacquer or wax.
