27 Creative Woodworking Projects

Is woodworking your hobby or passion?

Do you often like to work on creative and kind of different woodworking projects?

If you do, then this post is for you.

I got here a list of 27 really creative woodworking projects that you are going to like very much. These projects are somewhat different from the regular furniture works you have been doing so far. This is an opportunity for you to take your woodworking skill to the next level.

1) Wooden Tape Holder

This amazing measuring tape holder is made of pallet wood and a hacksaw blade. You can make it as long as you need to hold as many tapes as you want. There is a wood block used in each section to secure the tape. The blade can easily cut the tape as much you need without having to remove the roll from the stand.

2) Tape Cassette Coffee Table

Honestly, I don’t know how to make this one, but it seems a really nice example of creative woodworking. This table can also be reversed from side A to B, same as a mixed tape. See if you could make one yourself. This is going to give a real classic look to your living room. Visit the source link below to know more about this Creative Mixtape Coffee Table.

3) Wooden Piggy Bank

This wooden piggy bank is easy to make for a professional woodworker. As you can, it looks beautiful and definitely unique. This pig got two ears, a nose, and a tail. It has a coin hole at the hope from when you can drop coins and even notes. The back side opens to let you collect your savings.

4) Log Lounger

I bet this is going to be one of the most creative pieces of wood you’ll see today. This log lounger is a really awesome way to make use of old yard waste to make something so beautiful. Check out the tutorial link below to learn how to make it. You’ll need some old birch logs for this.

5) Glowing Table

I would have ever imagined making a glowing table until I read about it. Yes, this table glows in the dark. If it’s not creative, then what is? Once you come to know about it, doing it seems actually simple. You just have to fill the natural hardwood voids with something like photo luminescent (glow) powder. Visit the tutorial link below.

6) Wishbone Bookcase

Tell me you don’t love this amazing wishbone bookcase. It is a really nice example of the fine creative woodworking. This bookcase doesn’t look very easy to make but shouldn’t be a very tough job for a professional woodworker like you. I couldn’t manage to find a tutorial for this one so try at your own risk.

7) Wooden Rocking Chair

This rocking chair is more creative than any chair you have ever seen or used. See how beautifully those curves and edges have been crafted. It takes the art of woodworking to a whole new level. I’m in love with this chair but cannot make one. Can you? Do not forget to share the images with us.

8) Creative Dog Bowls

Do you have a dog at home? Then, you are absolutely going to love these dog bowls. This is a wooden bowl set made from an old wood block. It can hold two or more bowls to feed your pets. The set fits perfectly fine with other wooden furniture in your living room. For more dog bowls ideas, visit http://www.finewoodworking.com/readerproject/2014/03/05/creative-dog-feeding-bowls

9) Babele Lamp

This lamp is another really cool example of creative woodworking. It is also called the giant puzzle lamp. Wondering why? As you can see, it is made of wooden disks that can be twisted around to change the shade of the lamp. You can use more creativity to create your own design from it.Read more about it at http://design-milk.com/babele-lamp-is-like-a-giant-puzzle/

10) Inception Chair

As you can probably guess by looking at the image, this is not just one chair, but one chair made from many chairs (chair into a chair). Check out the source link below to understand how it works. It takes a lot of doing, but if you need multiple chairs in decreasing sizes, this can be a nice way to store them.

11) Contour Coffee Table

This contour coffee table was originally designed by Robby Cuthbert. This is a solid example of furniture creativity. It consists of four S-shaped bamboo pieces held together by steel cables, such that the pieces never touch each other.Read more about it at http://design-milk.com/contour-coffee-table-lamp-robby-cuthbert/

12) Contour Lamp

This product is from the same designer as the one above. As you can see in the image, this also makes use of an S-shaped bamboo piece that is tied to the flat surface by a strong steel cable. This is a classic example of the working mechanism between tension and stability. Check the above link for details.

13) Spices Racks

This spice rack can be opened and closed like a box whenever you need to extract a spice jar from it. As you can see, it has been constructed under an existing kitchen cabinet to save space. It is a perfect creative spice rack for small kitchens and can hold a big number of spice jars.Read more at http://homesthetics.net/creative-kitchen-storage-idea-under-cabinet-spice-rack/

14) Japanese Wood Lantern

Although I couldn’t find who the actual designer of this beautiful lamp is, it definitely has some Japanese art effect. This one is made of teak wood with the stainless steak structure. The lamp hood can also be adjusted in the traditional lamp position. Check out the source link below to know more http://www.makmis.com/simplicity-japanese-lantern-effect/

15) 45 Degree Swing Draw Set

I have seen many wooden boxes, but this one I find the most creative. Want to know why? Because this single box is comprised of eight small boxes, most of which opens at 45-degree angle. The top one also has a mirror lid. It can be used as a make-up box or jewelry box.See more at https://www.triangle-woodworking.com/gallery-2?lightbox=dataItem-iueh8sil

16) Hand Grenade Dresser

This is a dresser in the form of a hand grenade. Tell me what can be more creative than this. It has multiple cabinets that can be used to hold almost anything. There is a tail coming out of the top; do not remove it or the bomb will go off. Just kidding! But why take the risk, right?

17) Wood and Aluminum Benches

These benches as you can see are made with the creative fusion of wood and aluminum. This is definitely not easy to make, at least not for a woodworking beginner. It has been built by pouring the melted aluminum into the voids of a natural wood block and then, turning it into a flat surface.See more of it at https://pagefiddler.wordpress.com/2014/10/14/hilla-shamia-singed-wood-and-aluminum-soul/

18) Wood-Carved Cityscape

This wonderful wood cityscape 3D sculpture was designed by the famous wood artist James Mcnabb. As you can imagine, it is really hard to make, definitely not my cup of tea. See how the shade is making a wonderful skyline pattern on the surface; creativity can’t get better than this.Check out more of his work at http://mcnabbstudio.com/city-series/
