1. DIY Animal Blocks Jigsaw Projects

We Lived Happily Ever After has a tutorial for these adorable wooden animal toys. They used a scroll saw, but if you wanted to make larger animals you could turn this project into a jigsaw project. I don’t suggest trying to make these tiny animals with a jigsaw.

2. Jigsaw Paper Towel Rack

Houseful of Handmade’s paper towel rack would make an adorable and functional addition to any kitchen.

3. One Board Bench

Ana White has some plans for the “one board bench”. It’s functional and would be a quick project for a beginner. all of the cuts could be made with a jigsaw depending on the thickness of the board you are using.
