Ted’s woodworking projects

Are you a woodworking enthusiast and looking for DIY carpentry ideas that are easy to follow and understand?  I came across a site with over 16,000 downloadable woodworking plans.  Now, this is a review of this site and if you want to visit it now, Just click HERE.

Here is my opinion:

If you want to start a carpentry project you need all the relative information possible like schematics, blueprints, dimensions, material lists and not to forget the tools that will be necessary to complete the job.  Ted’s Woodworking gives you all the diy carpentry ideas plus, the plans are clearly drawn with step by step explanations of how do all of the woodworking project yourself.  There are several other sites who have NO parts or material lists nor giving you any indication of what tools you will be needing to put your DIY carpentry project together.  To top it all off, there are collections of plans with dimensions that are totally wrong.  If you are one of those unlucky people who have bought some of these plans, Ted’s Woodworking ideas will change your perception for ever.

PROS:

In Ted’s Woodworking Plans you will get the following: (CLICK to see for yourself)

  • detailed diagrams with a full list of dimensions
  • step by step instructions of how you should start your DIY carpentry project.
  • all the materials that you’ll need for that project
  • as well as all the woodworking tools that you will need.

Then of course you will get the no questions asked 60 Day Money Back Guarantee.

If you have done some woodworking or even if you are a beginner, you will find these plans easy to follow and to understand as the instructions are really clearly written, straightforward and not complicated at all.  Newcomers to carpentry will be able to master all the techniques and woodworking skills very quickly  by following the clear and concise instructions.

Oh, and another great thing about these woodworking plans is that there are videos included which guide you on how to  build dog houses, benches, bird feeders, home furniture even sheds and much more.

There is also a lifetime member access included in the package and you get these extras free, yes, no additional charges at all.  This alone is worth the entire price for Ted’s Woodworking .

CONS:

All the plans and prints etc may be a bit overwhelming and also it may take a while to download as it is quite a big file.

Categories would be nice, ie * Beginner/ Newcomer/ Easy,* Moderate Difficulty, *For the Experienced.  Or even easier,  show it as: */ **/ ***/

Other than that, I really have nothing negative to add.

If you want to start learning the woodworking craft you have to realise that it is not easy and to become good at it will take time and effort.  Although, this can be great fun and with the right guidance you can get on the internet.

There are all kinds of information available about woodworking on the net and you can read a lot about it there.  There is also a a lot of DIY Woodworking ideas on-line that you might need and that will give you guidance.  However, speaking of guidance–it is absolutely important to check the accuracy of these woodworking plans since there are some of them that should NOT be on the net at all.  Use only easy and accurate DIY woodworking projects in the beginning.  That will make it a lot easier for you succeed and will make the woodworking craft a lot more fun as you’ll soon discover.

You also have the alternative choice of woodworking magazines.  These magazines have mostly accurate woodworking plans that are easy to follow and  if you stick you it, will give you great results. The downside with magazines is the price.  You will pay more to get DIY carpentry plans from a magazine than if you search on the net.  It is a lot easier to use the internet but you have to look with a critical eye before you start with any woodworking project.

It is good to start with simple DIY woodworking plans in the beginning where woodworking hand tools are used to finish a project.  This is important for you safety as well as learning about the woodworking craft, before moving on to more intricate projects where you will use heavier carpentry equipment.

DIY carpentry ideas —- plans that work?

There are so many books on the market for diy carpentry ideas but so very few of them are actually of any real help for the beginner wood worker that us poor souls give up before we even got STARTED.  It is also often found that the provided diagrams are incomplete or that whole steps are being left out, leaving the woodworking enthusiast frustrated and with not many other options but to fork out more money for yet another woodworking guide in order to finish his current project.

Luckily for the beginner as well as the professional carpenter I came
