% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Woodworking has always been a vast field that inculcates creativity in its workpiece by intricately hand-crafted or sometimes machined patterns. Probably that is the reason why the woodworking industry is currently running in the top list of industries on the market. Plus, it is a good way of making enough capital and fame within a short span of a couple of years only. But starting one’s career in woodworking is not enough if you do not have the knowledge of the current woodworking trends of the year. Remember, to establish yourself in a particular field, you must have the idea of the current market and what are the customers’ expectations from your field.

So, today we will discuss 5 such woodworking trends of 2021 that you may try following to improve and strengthen your business potential.

5 Top Woodworking Trends

Though there are a myriad of trends to follow in woodworking, here we have compiled some of the best and quick profit-making trends for you:

  1. Wooden Toys

Wooden toy making has become one of the most demanded and sought as there is no particular season or reason to present toys to the kids in the family and elsewhere. So, there is no such definite season when one should manufacture toys in lots for one time sake as it won’t work on the next season. No, it does not happen like that when it comes to toys, especially the wooden ones that most children find more attractive and playful. You can develop a variety of toy products, sometimes personalized for birthday occasions, starting with a cute little nutcracker to a rocking horse, etc.

Note: You must take special care of the user safety while developing the toys as the user here would be the children. So, the product must adhere to user-friendliness.

  1. Wooden Utensils

Wooden utensils are considered the all time healthy cum safety cooking tools. Starting from forks to spoons to wooden handled knives and other wooden utensils, all these look great and at the same time are safe to be used, especially if you have kids in your family. They sometimes add ornamental beauty to your kitchen top or dining table as they sometimes seem like a set of antique pieces at home. A good scientific benefit of using wooden utensils is that they are poor conductors of heat. So, you can hold much heated fondue or other hot dishes on wooden utensils and can handle the same without burning your hands. This is one of the many reasons why wooden utensils manufacturing has become a profitable trend on the market where both the seller and buyer get benefited. Bill Baum from theedgecutter often talks about the importance of wooden utensils and how one can make use of them in woodworking.

  1. Swing Bed for Patio

If your interest is more into home decor or renovation, then swing bed for patio is an exceptional woodworking idea that is trending for its increased demand since the last year when Covid-19 crawled in and most office jobs turned into work from home jobs. Patio swing beds are a good place to rest yourself while you are still dealing with an important meeting or coding. Other than that, a patio swing is a good place to relax in the hot summer evenings or spring. So, you will notice a great demand for this thing, especially now when this global pandemic is still at its peak and no one knows when it is going to end.

The swing would require a couple of pallets made of wood, a rope or chain just strong enough to support the weight of an average weighing adult or so. So, here you might need some additional accessories other than wood for the manufacture of swing beds but it is still worth it. Another good thing about this trend is that it does not take much time, however, when manufactured, yields a sturdy output with an elegant outlook.

  1. Home for Pet

Making pet homes is the ever-trending woodworking idea you will find on the market. Just like the wooden toy trend, home for pets is another such trend that clients always have the requirement of. This is because the pet owners never consider their pets any less than their own children. So, they make sure to change or customize their pets’ home with their growing age and size.

This gives you enough room to display your creativity in putting forth a home product that the pet will feel the most coziest place to sleep or stay in. Not just that, but you can also approach many such companies (that keep a collection of the best of its kind pet homes) to display your crafting skills or project. Or, you may simply put it on a flier; on a regular journal or newspaper to attract mass attention who might be looking for something like that.

  1. Picture Frames

Manufacturing picture frames is one of the easiest, least time taking, and least effort consuming woodworking trends present on this list. Wooden photo frames will always be timeless and there is no particular season when you can expect the highest sale of it on the market. This is something that people will keep requiring till the end of time; no matter how tech-savvy we all are these days.

Making frames is more than just cutting a piece of wood into a particular shape and joining it. You get so much to do with its polishing and varnishing, selecting the perfect color combination to bring out the exceptional look out of it, and more! The only setback about wooden frames these days is many manufacturers keep up the price so high, especially in the gift stores and photo shops. This is what you should take the advantage of and be ready to sell your finished products at a price dear to all. The trend of wooden photo frame has evidently gained much popularity through their sale on flea markets. However, if you want to take this trend yet farther, why not try contacting some big photo shops or studios to find out if they have any requirement of wooden photo frames to capture the stills of their models?


The list is not exhaustive as you will find many other profitable woodworking projects as you explore the internet. But, the ones mentioned above are the most-sought by the current market based on the customer demand. Plus, the above trends do not consume much of your physical effort and time, or a wide variety of materials to work on. For instance, making picture frames is the easiest job in woodcrafting that hardly requires much time or energy. Plus, you will not necessarily have to use different types of workpieces/materials to create a single frame.
