I categorized the projects into beginner, intermediate, and advanced.

Don’t be afraid to take a look into the plans in all of the categories. I put them into the categories based on whether they had angles to be cut and the number of tools you will need for the project.

There are some fun and unique ones so let your creativity flow and get to making!!!
