For some reason you are limited. But, that doesn’t mean you can’t have some fun. Every project that you do will give you a sense of accomplishment. That’s what’s so exciting about woodworking.
Once you have chosen a few simple projects, the key is to choose the right projects. The truth is that few people are naturally talented in woodworking. There are many people who seem naturally gifted with fine woodworking skills however that doesn’t mean that you have to pick your whole life’s woodworking projects all at one time. Pick the projects which you most enjoy. Pick the projects in which you experienced the most joy and fulfillment.
If you’re training to become a woodworker but can’t pick your projects, you can choose to wait until your “moar install time” for the time. The last thing you want do is become frustrated because woodworking is hard work. Start with your basics and wait a few months to work on those projects. Then move on to larger ones until you become a competent woodworker. Plan for a few months also, wait a while, then start working on those projects. You want to develop a skill for woodworking which you can use on larger projects, over a few months.

Your next step is to find the right plans for you. You want plans that you can understand and follow easily. Keep in mind that you are new to woodworking yet, you’re still an beginners.

Like I said earlier, you will not be an expert with a set of plans until you’ve earned the right to take the easy way out. A quality set of woodworking plans will be your road map to getting a well done project. This is where you get to be an experienced woodworker before you leave the beginner’s field.
