Wood Working Designs through the Years

Wood working designs have been around as long as man has been working with wood and other raw materials. Humans seem to have an innate desire to create things, and many have created beautiful items out of wood. Wood working designs, however have changed through the years as often as the culture and tastes of society have changed. A piece of furniture from the Victorian era would probably not fit in with the harvest gold decorating era of the 1970s.

Some wood working designs have been passed down through the years, and are still used today. Certain types of furniture or other home d¨¦cor, such as shelves, can often be passed down through the generations and can weather the storm of popular culture and bizarre designs that have occurred in the last 30 years.

Types of Wood Working Designs

Wood working designs can come in so many shapes, patterns, pictures, designs, or just about anything humans can ever dream of. A wood working design can reflect a person¡¯s own thoughts, feelings, and interests or it could be inspired by something they have seen in nature or man made.

Wood working designs can be carried out in several ways. One way is with a scroll saw, which is a very versatile tool when it comes to working with wood. You can use your wood working design and cut out pieces of the wood so that you can look through the piece of wood in the design area.

You can also use a scroll saw for a different type of design. Pieces can be cut out and used together or separately. A good example of this would be a wooden puzzle or a small shelf.

A wood working design can also simply be burned into the wood. Wood burning is another variety of wood working, where a design is literally burnt into the wood with a hot, pointed ¡®wand¡¯ that looks a lot like a soldering iron. If done correctly, these designs can be very elegant. However, if not done correctly, they can produce lines that are too heavy or just crude-looking.

If you are at all interested in wood working, eventually you will begin looking at good designs. With the advent of the Internet, free designs are just a click away. Libraries can also be a good source for wood working designs as even if the library doesn¡¯t have the book you want, they can order it for you through inter-library loan and have it to you within a few weeks.

Whatever your skill level in dealing with wood working designs, it can seem like it never will become boring. From simple designs to very complex and intricate once, once you begin working with wood, you will be sharing a common pastime of many others through the centuries.
