Why use a kit? While there is something to be said for marking, cutting, assembling, and finishing a project from scratch there are a few times that it makes sense to use a kit instead. Here are several advantages to using a kit for a wood project:
Kits vary widely with materials included and level of expertise needed so research carefully to find out what is provided and what isn't.

Wood kits are available online for every ability level but stick with well-respected brand names in the woodworking and DIY industries where you can expect a high level of quality and guidance.
