The materials used for most DIY projects is wood. There are many benefits of working with wood. With wood you can build a number of structures such as tables, chairs, decks, fences, herb garden boxes, box shelves and all sorts of other objects.

Wooden poles such as utility poles for example can be sourced and reused for a number of different projects. Below in this post I will be presenting you with some DIY projects.

 

Fencing

 

Thinking of building fencing around a particular section of your property? Used wooden poles can be gotten either for free or for a very low price from utility companies. Utility poles are sturdy and can make for great fencing. Remember to ask the supplier what the wooden poles have been treated with so that you can check whether it is safe to use.

They can also be mounted against the wall. This way you can easily pick your favourite herbs to use when cooking and for medicinal reasons.
