Instructables Woodworking Club: Project #2

Posted on


The second project of the Instructables Woodworking Club was a scrap wood house number sign which focused on glueing. This project involved gluing scraps of wood together and clamping them in order to create a door sign, cheese board or decorative key hanger. The club organizers had all the material ready for us and then the 5 of us (who happen to all be women), followed the steps set out by the Instructables lesson.

The lesson was straightforward and informative. We all got to cutting and glueing and creating our projects. What I liked most about this club build night is that everyone was working together to learn something new.

Lana, who’s a regular club member said this about the second project:

“This Instructables group further increase my knowledge of tools: again using the compound mitre saw, then learning about the planer and glue (who knew that stuff was so good?!).  Afterwards I also gained knowledge and experience using the handheld drill to pre-drilling the holes and using this same tool to screw on the hooks from the Instructable website.  I am again really happy with how this turned out.  I took some scraps of wood plus some coat hooks that were just laying around and made something I am proud of.  I can use these skill to make other usable items out of scraps and discarded pieces.  Again thanks to Yukonstruct and Instructables, a whole new world is opening up for me.”
