We’re excited to announce our first new feature in a long time: a tutorial on how to paint wooden houses.
We’re not kidding about this, it’s an entire tutorial.
In the meantime, check out the full article for the inside scoop on how we created this tutorial and how to learn how to do it yourself.
So, we’ve been building up a lot of wood-boring art and now we’re excited about finally making a tutorial that will teach you how to get started with the hobby.
We started by going through our wood shop inventory and found the most popular projects, so we thought it might be interesting to add some new ones.
One of our favorite hobbies is painting wood, so it made sense to share some of our best woodworking techniques and tips with you.
We’ll show you how the wood work is done and how you can do it in a couple of quick steps.
This tutorial is about woodworking basics.
You can learn more about our history here and check out our woodshop inventory here.

Once you have a basic rough sketch that you can paint, it is time to start adding wood.
The planer allows you to create smooth cuts in the wood and it makes it easy to add details to the edges of your woodwork.
Painting and gluing the plan.
To paint the wood, we start with a dry brush and a watercolor pencil.
We want to create a smooth and even line on the wood.

The wood should sit perfectly on the plan, with no gaps or bumps.
