Work Your Wood a Thousand Different Ways

Home Business

If you enjoy do-it-yourself projects, or have any wood working ideas that you want to make a reality, you could put wood slabs to good use. They're an affordable way to acquire a variety of woods, from hard woods like Oak or Redheart, to Spruce or Rosewood. You can probably acquire just about anything you'd want at an agreeable price. What are some ways that you can turn a slab into something spectacular? Below are seven ideas to get you started, but this is by no means an exhaustive list. There are at least a thousand different ways to put your wood to good use.

1. Book Shelves

The raw, rustic look of real wood book shelves can be a fantastic addition to any house or apartment. Whether they're free hanging to maximize their decorative flare or part of a bookcase, they add a warm, natural aesthetic that's worthy of attention.

2. Sliding Doors

With a little bit of work, you can turn a slab into a sliding door, which gives a unique touch to any remodeling or updating of your home. It's a fairly easy process, and it gives a very distinct appearance. With the right kind of finish, you can probably find a way to blend it into whatever color scheme or style you like.

3. Tables

From coffee tables, to dining tables, to outdoor patio tables, this is probably one of the most obvious choices, but also an incredibly functional and versatile one. Depending on how much work you'd like to do, you can make a fantastically formal dining table, a sleek, polished coffee table, or a rough and raw table for your deck.

4. Desk

Whether you want a new office desk, computer desk, or school desk, you can find a slab that'll fit nicely and bring an all natural, beautiful appeal. With a little bit of sanding, cutting, and finishing, you can find a way to work the wood into any room and just about any motif.

5. Countertops

Whether in the kitchen, as a vanity top in the bathroom, or as a bar top, you can find a way to work a slab into just about any setting. Some may require a little bit more work, especially if plumbing is going to be involved, but there's no arguing with the luster and lush look of the finished product.

6. Light Fixture

Are you familiar with electrical work, or do you know someone who is? It might not be the first thought that came to mind, but wooden light fixtures can be incredibly appealing, and they can add a very distinct, rugged appeal to a room. It's certainly something worth considering, if you're willing to put in the effort.

7. Headboard

Have you been wanting to remodel or redecorate your bedroom, but you just couldn't think of what to do? This is a great way to add a different and vibrant, or earthy and woodsy look to your bedroom, without needing to completely redo the entire space. It adds a touch of style, without requiring you to go all out on a whole new design. With how-to guides available, it's probably easier than you'd imagine.

In fact, you can find any number of walk-through guides and step-by-step instructions on the Internet to help you figure out ways to tackle all of these jobs. Unless you have the skills, you'd be wise to get help with any plumbing or electrical work that's needed, but most jobs won't require much skilled labor. You can put wood slabs to any number of uses, and this list barely scratches the surface.
