This is our second part in the series “Amazing Projects for Beginners to build with Table Saws”. You can checkout the Part 1 here.
Build a tall oak mirror
This project is something that you will use for a long time, and your spouse will love you for making it. It is a simple project but may not be apt for total newbies.
With your table saw, you can build a full length mirror that can be placed in your living room or bedroom and will let you see yourself from head to toe in it. You can either go with the basic version or a more elegant looking version of the mirror.
The elegant version will take more time as there is addition Woodworking to be done for the edges.
Build a bird feeder
Bird feeders are generally the most primitive Woodworking projects to take up with table saws. But in this project, we are going to add a complexity to the plan and make the whole thing look very attractive. This fun and easy to build project will use cedar wood that attracts birds and will last for years. It will have weather protection and a plexiglass affixed at one the sides. The purpose of the plexiglass is to let you monitor the amount of bird seed remaining so that you can do on time refills.
Build a bread tray for your kitchen
This is another project that is going to add to the beauty of your kitchen. This won’t take much of your time and is relatively easy to make. And what you will end up with is a beautiful looking bread slicing tray. The tray will features space at the bottom from where bread crumbs will fall on the kitchen table. You can add the fun of Woodworking by creating a cutting board of the same size as the base of the bread tray. Then, when you want to convert bread cutting tray into a serving tray, simply place the cutting board at the base and voila! You have a homemade serving tray. This project also makes for an excellent gift.
Build a backyard game called Washers
“Washers” is another game that is fondly played in backyard barbecue parties. If you a planning to throw one, you can build a game board for it. The board for this game is very easy to build. It has a few holes in it and the game goes like this: People stand at a distance from board and throw large flat washers at the board. The aim is to land a washer in one of the holes. The hole farther from the players has the maximum number of points. The game may look simple but it is very addictive.
Build slab-style cabinet doors
If the cove style cabinet doors were too complex for you, you can try your hands of these simpler slab-style doors. The process to make them with a table saw is kind of similar to the one discuss in the cove style section, but a lot quicker and less complex. These types of doors are extremely popular in European countries.
