Beginner's woodworking projects by Ana White are quite popular. This is because Ana White makes complicated carpentry look doable and she provides plans that are clear and complete. Even if you have never held a hammer in your life, you will find these beginners woodworking projects easy to tackle. As long as you have some power tools (and willing assistants) on the ready, you will be able to build beautiful furniture following these plans.
1. X Console Table
I wanted to start this list of beginner's woodworking projects with this console table because this has always been in my to-do list. I have not gotten around to trying this but I think you will have a grand time following the plan. Most of the materials that you will need for this table are 2x4s. The corners come with decorative bolts. I gather that they are optional but I say don't skip this step. The corner hardware adds to the rustic beauty of the console table.
