One of the most common creations that people who are new to woodworking create are doors. Generally, doors are a very easy piece of household furniture and fittings to create and complete. Generally, the doors themselves are one singular piece of wood that is needed to complete, so that is why they are the most popular among those who have yet to complete many carpentry projects as a DIY.
A door is a great way to get started on the hammer and chisel aspect of carpentry. The sculpturing is great to practice on doors, because you basically have a blank canvas on a way to work. You can really create things the way you want to, and you will be able to engrave any design on the door that you would like. If you have an idea on the way that you want to engrave your door, there is a good way to get started.
Hammer and Chisel is generally the classic way to engrave any material including marble itself. But with a door, you have a relatively inexpensive canvass that you can engrave potential designs with. With a blank canvas and the ability to try what you want; it makes a great project for you to experiment on.
It also gives you a great replacement for a door, which is one of the few fittings of a home you never expect to break over the years. When you start to think about how easy it is for a door to break and how expensive it would be to purchase a new one, it starts to become a useful addition to have a spare of. You just need to make sure that the actual size matches the doorways in your home.
