    Default Build your own furniture

    When I was young my father and I bought unassembled furniture kits from Home Depot and assembled/stained our own funiture. It was a small way of connecting and small way of making furniture our own, plus it saved a bit of money. However these day it seems that Home Depot no longer carries these kits and I am having trouble finding them anywhere. Does anyone know of a good place to find them?

    Making furniture is a nice hobby. Look on line for outlets and stores - I'm sure you will find plenty of those out there. And if you have a hard time finding, consider building from scratch.

    The reasons why HD no longer sells them are: slow sales, low margin and limited shelf space.

    I don't know about kits, but there are a lot of sites that sell furniture parts, i.e., legs, hardware, etc. You might make a nice project out of them.

    We recently found a local store that belonged to the Real Wood Furniture organization (http://www.unfinishedfurniture.org/certification.cfm)

    I like to build my own items but we liked what they had and it was not particle board or MDF.
