The most common phrase we hear around here is, “I would love to learn woodworking, but I have no idea where to start.”
My answer? Start with a cutting board.
A small cutting board or cheeseboard is the perfect project for beginner woodworkers. It’s fast — you can build one in less than an hour, from start to finish, even if you have no experience. It can be made from a single piece of wood, so you don’t have to know anything about joinery, or stand around waiting for glue to dry. And you’ll have to use at least 6 different power tools, all of which are foundational to pretty much any woodworking project.
And my personal favorite reason for making a cutting board for your first woodworking project? It doesn’t require much in the way of precision or exact measurements, so if you screw it up, nobody will ever know.
