Years ago, high schools around the United States had “shop class”, where kids would learn how to work with wood and other materials. However, because of accidents and liability issues, shop class has nearly disappeared from the American landscape. Woodworking has become sort of a lost art that is mostly only done by professional carpenters. On top of that, you usually need a workspace in a garage or a barn to be able to make these projects in the first place. So it’s rare that we get to see these kinds of projects coming out of someone’s house. Here are some amazing DIY projects we found on the Woodworking subReddit that were made by amateur makers who are just having fun with their woodworking skills.
Handmade Deer Antler Drawers
At first glance, this set of wood drawers looks pretty normal. And the deer antler handles might not be everybody’s taste. But they’re great for anyone who loves hunting. The man who made this set of drawers uploaded a video on Reddit showing how it opens and closes. The track is actually interlocked, and makes a great sound when you open the drawers. There are also compartments inside of the top drawers. So it’s actually a really unique piece, despite how plain it looks on the outside. The man who made this is clearly very creative with woodworking, and this must have taken a long time to make.
