As summer is here and the school holidays have just begun, you may be wondering what fun activities you and your family could get up to this summer. Why not take advantage of this hot weather and get creative outside in your garden!
If you have a passion for woodworking, then you’re in the right place as we’re about to offer some exciting ideas that you can get up to this summertime. Woodworking is the perfect summer craft, you get to be outside soaking up the sun, and making cool creations that can benefit your garden for the summer months.
Calderbrook Woodwork Machinery have helped us create this guide on the best summer woodworking projects for you to enjoy as a solo project, or with your friends and family.
Make a Birdhouse
A classic woodworking project is to build your own birdhouse! Birdhouses are great for the British wildlife to store their food, keep cozy at night, and have somewhere dry to shelter. By building a birdhouse, you’re giving the birds that make their way into your garden a safe, sheltered space, which is a great reason to build one this summer.
Another reason to take on this woodworking project is the fun you’ll have whilst working on it! Using your DIY skills to plan, craft, and build your own woodwork project is a satisfying experience. Watching birds fly in and out of your birdhouse once it is completed will hopefully be worth the hard work you would have put in.
Build Your Own Mini Garden Shed
As we are in the midst of summer, there’s no doubt you’ll be spending a lot more time in your garden during the hot weather. If you’re thinking of having guests over in the garden this summer then you may find you want to do some gardening and maintenance to prepare. For this activity you’re going to need somewhere to store your tools, this is where building your own mini garden shed comes in!
If you’re someone who has a love for gardening and woodworking, then there’s no doubt you own plenty of tools. If your main shed is becoming cluttered then you may find that building your own mini storage shed could be the solution to your problem.
Simply grab your woodworking equipment and build your own tiny garden shed so your extra tools have their own space. Why not make this your DIY summer woodworking project?
Construct A New Garden Bench
Finally, our last summer woodworking activity involves building a new place for your friends and family to sit when they come over! This summer project could be the final touch that your garden needs. As summer is the month of garden parties and barbeques, you’re going to need to make sure everyone has a nice place to sit. What better way to do this than by handcrafting a brand new garden bench for summer?
