Anyone with a few basic shop tools can build these projects

Money Back Guarantee 100% - Burst Badge OrangeThese woodworking projects don’t use complicated joinery or require specialized tools. I learned the woodworking techniques needed to accomplish what I want to do with each project – and believe me, I’ve made my share of mistakes along the way.

I don’t assume you already know how to make stopped chamfers or mount cabinet drawer fronts, and since these are original plans, I tell you the steps that I took – and pass on the tips that I discovered along the way.

After all, that why you’re here looking for plans right?

Learning New Woodworking Skills is a Truly Rewarding Experience

I’ve found the best way to learn how to do something is by doing it – with a little guidance along the way. Like most do-it-yourselfers, I’ve learned and practiced my skills and gained more confidence over the years with each new project. When I put together these plans, I think about how I felt the first time I used a new tool or did something I hadn’t attempted before.

I’ve been there, and that’s why I detail exactly how I built these woodworking projects in my little basement workshop. I’m confident anyone with an interest in woodworking who has a table saw, router table, mitre saw, sander and electric drill (along with a box of hand tools and some clamps) will enjoy the satisfaction and pride that comes from building these projects.
