RICK HELMS WOODWORKING
SMALL WEEKEND PROJECTS
On this page, I'm highlighting small, easily completed projects. Some of them require sophisticated tools, some only basic shop tools. In some cases you could actually complete them with no power tools at all, if you have S4S (Sanded All Four Sides) lumber.
I've included projects that the typical craftsman should be able to complete in a weekend. These are great for Christmas and birthday presents, or just to keep your skills fresh between major projects. I've built each of these, and they're all fun and beautiful!
