LIFEHACKER (May 25, 2011) – The DIY Furniture Design Bank is an online catalog of small furniture designs, laid out cleanly and simply enough for just about anyone to understand them. The instructions are short and tend to assume that whoever is reading them has had a minimum amount of experience with woodworking, but the illustrations make them perfect for printing out. So, even if you don’t know the first thing about woodworking (or have access to a workshop), you can probably get somebody to put one of these designs together if you really love it.
There are only 27 designs at the moment, but they’re basic enough for a prospective builder to make changes without really harming anything. The designs in the catalog are seriously trending right now, too. As simple as they are, some of them look an awful lot like pieces you might find in an expensive furniture haus, with a price tag steeper than a new Macbook.
