Looking for simple projects.

Hello there. I am just looking for some simple project where I can get used to the wood working equipment again. Try this call tracking out.

Thanks for having this forum.

Welcome Kory

I always recommend something big like a real piece of furniture. Tables are fairly simple whether a large dining table or a small lamp table or perhaps a coffee table.
Mostly straight cuts. If you buy good quality hardwood, have the mill join and plain the boards for you. Then all you will need is a table saw with a decent blade, a dado blade and a hand held small router a drill press with a cheap cross-slide vise for all of your joinery.

It would help to know what tools you have. If you have a table saw and dado blade a cabinet is a great simple project. Its a simple box and you can make very simple doors or try something like raised panel door. Most people can use an extra one in a garage or laundry room.
If you can build a cabinet you can build bookcases , chest of drawers, etc.

Welcome from Texas !!!

Welcome to the forum.
HHHMMM simple projects, let's see.....
According to the wife, a fixer up home is a simple project...

Na, start with a few hand tools, make a box or two to get used to box joints, dovetail joints of various widts. Get a lathe, make your own tool handles, knife handles etc.

Tools are like guns, You can never have enough.
Where did I put that tape measure???

Welcome to the forum. Glad to have you aboard. If you are looking for some fairly simple ideas or patterns, you can browse this site. There's pretty much something for everyone here.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"
