I recently found a new passion for making things with wood.. I made a nice wine cabinet and bookcase so far! Although I am a complete beginner I was quite happy with my latest projects.

Does anyone know a good project plan for a wooden coin box? I want to create a box to hold coins and bills for saving to travel :)

Any ideas or inspiration? Or even Reccomend a good tool for building? I just have a hammer, nails sandpaper and a saw, but I would like to get a good tool that is not to expensive for wood working.

Thanks!

I once was very interested in building (electric) guitars, and the one tool you absolutely need was a router:

They can be very expensive, though.

give it a try and look for some local woodwork studio, ask for using their machines. there are a lot of usefull powertools for woodwork, joiner’s bench, lathe or milling cutter. check out different wood types, all have their own characteristics. google diy + wood.

there is a lot of stuff to know working with wood!

I mostly work with stone but the two tools I can’t live without are electric sander (cost £15 incl. sandpaper) and my angle grinder (cost £30). I suppose it does depend on what you’re building, but wherever possible I would always suggest getting electric tools over manual ones (eg. drill instead of screwdriver, powersaw instead of handsaw etc) as it saves hours or work :)

A really easy project is to make your own tealight holders, eg:-

Buy a drill and 40mm drillbit and you can drill perfect sized holes for tealights (see above). Quick and easy to make and also make nice personal presents for just about every woman you know lol
