Quick Poll

Simple woodworking projects are a lot of fun to build. They can be done quickly and build a lot of confidence. And, then there are more complicated projects. Ones that involve a lot of thinking, a lot of planning and a lot of tricky joinery.

For some woodworkers, this isn’t a big deal. For others, well, we need a little bit of help trying to sort out the building and assembly steps.  Will we need special clamps or a fancy jig to make things happen?

Fortunately, there’s an easy way to get to the bottom of these questions – build a prototype. Using inexpensive pine, plywood and even cardboard can help you get an idea of the building challenges and the overall size and proportions of the project.

Today’s question – which comes from our friend Allen Grayson – do you build prototypes of your projects?

  1. On the harder projects, I slow down and really think my next step through. It helps keep the old noodle sharp and cuts down on wasted material.
