50+ DIY Home Decor Projects to Make with a Jigsaw

50 Plus Best DIY Home Decor Projects to Make With a Jigsaw @savedbyloves

The jigsaw is a super versatile tool, and a great place to start the power tool journey. It is handheld, can be fairly inexpensive (like this Corded : Skil Saw. Variable Speed 4290-02), and cuts shapes in a variety of materials, with the appropriate blade.  I did a number of projects with a the above linked Skil Saw I scored at a garage sale for, and only recently splurged on a new one because of a gift card I received. The new one is fancy pants and cordless, but it doesn’t do anything the bare bones version can’t.  You can build the same projects with a basic jigsaw and a little practice.  That is great news, since as you will see below, you can make some seriously stylish and functional pieces for your home with this tool.  Enjoy!
