About This Course

Course updated on November.2020

Who this course is for:

  • This course is perfect for the complete beginner and is ideal for developing your skills as a DIY carpenter without spending a fortune.

What you’ll learn: 

  • How to build a beautiful bird house, a small aviary, and wooden garden planters.


  • No prior knowledge is required to take this course

In this bumper woodworking course, you will learn how to build a beautiful bird house, a small aviary (animal enclosure), three wooden garden planters: a simple planter, a more decorative planter and then a stackable vegetable planter.

Develop your skills 

We’ll start off learning how to build a simple planter made out of decking boards. This course assumes no prior knowledge and no DIY experience, so everything is explained in full. Once we’ve created the first planter, we will develop our skills further and apply them in building a much more decorative version of the first planter.

The good thing about both of these planters is that the materials required are relatively inexpensive, and the tools you’ll need can be found in any DIY shop and can be bought without spending a fortune. Because the materials are affordable, the projects in this course are great for developing and improving your DIY skills. The skills you learn can be applied to other DIY projects too.

As well as garden planters, I’ll show you how to build a very simple but very useful stackable vegetable planter. This planter can be completely bespoke, and you can make it as tall or short as you like and arrange it into an array of different designs. I’ve called it a vegetable planter as it is ideal for creating your own home allotment, but it can actually be used for growing anything you like.

By the end of this course, you will have learned creative woodworking.
