TedsWoodworking 16,000 Woodworking Plans Review


Hello Fellow Wood Carvers and wood workers.Have you ever gone out to your shop and wanted to create something cool but ended up not knowing what to make?


I hate that! Don't you? Or am I the only one who does that?


Anyway, I have all the tools I need, I could really make anything that I wanted. Sometimes I just can't think of what that one project would be LOL.


Well, I just came across a site with over 16,000 downloadable woodworking plans, its called Teds Woodworking Plans and I don't think I'll ever be at a loss for something to make ever again.


So, I thought Id give an honest review of this site, Here we go...


Pros:


First of all, If you want to start a woodworking project, you will need alot of information, such as schematics, blueprints, a list of materials you'll be using, dimensions etc right?


So I checked out TedsWoodworking. I found the the plans to be clearly drawn and there're step-by-step explainations of how the plan should be done and put together are pretty clear.


Many other sites have collections of plans but the dimensions are totally wrong or they don't even include a parts list, material list or the tools you will need. If you're one of those people who have bought plans like this in the past, TedsWoodworking will change your perception.


With Ted's Woodworking you will get everything you need:

-Detailed Diagrams with a full set of dimensions

-Step -by-step instructions on how to start your project

-The necessary materials for that particular project

-All the woodworking tools you will need


If you are a beginner or have done some woodworking you will find these plans easy-to-follow because the instructions are very clearly written. The woodworking plans are pretty straightforward and not complicated at all. Even if you are a total newcomer to woodworking you can master all the techniques that are needed and develop the woodworking skills very quickly by following the instructions.


Another thing which is so great about these is that there are some videos included , some to guide you in how to build benches, home furniture, dog houses, bird feeders, sheds and much much more.


You also get a lifetime membership acess included in the package, and you get it no cost to you as they are free with no additional charges at all! This alone is worth the entire price for the plans.


Ted Mcgrath is a very dedicated and experienced woodworker who knows what he is talking about when it comes to woodworking and DIY projects s he has been a woodworker for many many years.


Cons

There is only one drawback that I could find and it was with 16,000 woodworking plans you are bound to get some which look a little disorganized but that is understandable as it is very difficult to place all these plans into their proper categories. Secondly, it might take you a little longer to do the all thr downloads because of the size of them. But the members area does include an option to upgrade to the DVD so you can save time on downloading.

Bottom line:


Truth is, I've been a carver and woodworker for what seems like forever, and I haven't found anything like this for less than 10's of thousands of dollars. Here's the bottom line: If you are planning to start on your woodworking project or shop, this isn't something you SHOULD use, it's something that you would be Insane not to use. That's my opinion.
