I am slightly addicted to creating things. I love DIY and mostly I renew old things, but I also tried to build furniture and other woodwork at home.
Since I am also a garden lover I really enjoy making things for outdoor use.
But even if I really love it and have been searching for instructions online, I never really got it right. There was always some information I lacked and it was a struggle.
Then I found this site with over 16,000 downloadable woodworking plans at:
First I could not believe the number of woodworking plans that was included in this product…16000! My goodness! I thought: If this would work, I could make my own furniture, garden sheds, beds and everything! How cool is that!
The question is of course if the instructions are simple and detailed enough for someone like me…interested and devoted but far from a professional…!
So I did chose some plans (I have not yet tried them all….:-) and went through the directions and I was amazed actually…! Finally, I got my hand on instructions that were clear and understandable and that did not require that I was an educated carpenter.
Here is my review of TedsWoodworking.com
As I mentioned before, the instructions are great. The plans are clearly drawn, they are detailed with a full set of dimensions so you can see exactly how everything should be put together. There are also step-by-step explanations that describe how to do. Upon that you will get parts lists, material lists and also what tools you are going to need for the project.
I believe that if only the directions are clear enough I could manage almost anything, that is how I feel about this program. The instructions are clearly written and easy to follow. Even a total newbie will get what they need to create great things.
The program also has videos included that will help you make anything from benches, dog houses, garden sheds, and much, much more.
Ted Mcgrath is a very dedicated and experienced woodworker. You never doubt that he knows what he is doing!
Due to the number of plans that you get, it might be hard to find the exact plan you are looking for. They are all categorized but there are those that may not be placed in the right category. But with some searching, you will find what you need.
I have to say that I am amazed of all information I get with this program. If you are planning to start on your woodworking project, I just want to tell you: Don’t miss out on this!
