You can make so many things out of wood. In fact, a lot of your house and furniture might be made of wood. To make things even more interesting, why not get creative and make things yourself? You can make something to give as a gift or to use in your home. Either way, it's like adding more personality to the story.The tools you will use and need will depend on what you’re creating, but here are the basics: a saw, hammer, and nails, wood glue, paint, and paintbrushes. You might also want sandpaper, measuring instruments, and carving tools. To be safe, you will want to put on protective gear such as gloves and goggles, especially for bigger and more complicated projects. If you think your walls are too bare, then try adding personality to it by putting a pallet sign with words to live by. For this project, you might need a saw, a hammer and nails, painting tools, measuring tools, and sandpaper. You can buy the plank of wood, or you can recycle old wooden crates or boxes.
