Nightstand table plans have everything you need to create a bedside table to keep every needy thing at reach at night time. This Nigh Stand plan is quite different in design from the most of the other plans. This stand has not only the three regular drawers but also having a hidden drawer that uses a secret locking mechanism to keep contents securely.
Teds Woodworking Plans contains more than 16,000 different diagrams and enables individuals who are new to woodwork, or are experienced in the craft, to develop their skills and new brand new techniques. The website's database is enormous, with many different videos, CAD software, blueprints, and diagrams, which can cater to a number of different demographics, no matter what their age or background.

Consumers allege that according to the website, they are purchasing a CD with over 16,000 blueprints for woodworking projects. In actuality, they receive a log in and password to download plans from a website. Upon downloading some of the files, consumers are immediately dissatisfied with the quality of the plans. Although the company's website states that they have a 60 day money back guarantee, consumers are unable to obtain a refund.
A few days back, I was searching for some cool DIY plans. So, I got to work and ended up coming up with some easy to follow project and an awesome new ice chest cooler to have out on the deck! It was going to be perfect for summer hangouts and barbecues. It was a fun and practical plan to work on and I know you will have fun tackling select a design from this plan and start building your own. Enjoy learning how you can build a rustic cooler also sing the video tutorial and source tutorial plan!
The plans range from simple items like basic tables and chairs to more artistic creations such as jigsaw puzzle tabletops, wooden animal centerpieces, plans for upcycled wooden palette furniture, wooden clocks, hidden storage, garage plans and even plans for working musical instruments like guitars. With basic woodworking know-how, anyone can come up with interesting wooden creations with these plans.
Ted's plans are actually a rather poor subset of what is available on the web for free. The actual number of plans in the package is less than 2500, nowhere near the claimed 16,000. There is a search box on the Ted's woodworking main page that allows you to search the plans, towards the bottom of the front page. Try typing in some random jumble of letters there and see what "results" come up. Further evidence of scam!
Some of these spams were forwarded to me by followers of my website. I noticed right away that the links in the email went thru redirects on MailChimp's servers. The email itself also originated from a MailChimp server (mail52.us1.mcsv.net 204.232.163.52). Because I also used MailChimp for my mailing list, my first thought was that my MailChimp account had been compromised. But on further investigation, I realized the spammer used a list different from my mailing list. But I changed my password just for good measure!
Hmmm.. that video link seems to be broken for me.. but a quick google search for “Ted’s woodworking fraud” turns up a LOT of hits, even from Matthias over at woodgears.ca ( http://woodgears.ca/ted/ ) and Steve Ramsey has a page devoted to him at WWMM ( http://www.woodworkingformeremortals.com/2012/04/teds-woodworking-fraud.html ). Someone even tried to find the address listed for them and it doesn’t exist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I3rAcKT7NCw
The beauty of this project lies in the simplicity. All you need are 3 pieces of wood of your choice (though we must admit natural hardwoods will look incredible), sanding block, clamps, wood glue and finishing product. The hardest step of the whole tutorial is measuring – as always, measure 9 times, cut once! You wouldn’t want to finish your project and then realize it doesn’t have enough space to fit your DVD player, would you?
There is lawn furniture, and then there is what you might call landscape furniture—custom seating built right into the terrain. Done right, it can create a little oasis in your yard or even on your deck. Take, for instance, this bench with planters for piers. The entire structure is made from rot- and weather-resistant cedar lumber. It was built using lap joinery, a sturdy construction method meant to keep the planter walls from bowing against pressure from roots, should you decide to plant trees.
I got this idea from a Pinterest post. The final product looks so beautiful that I just couldn’t wait to make one for myself. This was somewhat a different experience from my other regular DIY projects as it doesn’t involve making something from scratch, but turning an existing wood piece into another one. Nonetheless, I enjoyed it very much and the final product was very satisfying. The tutorial I used is linked below.
Although refrigerators long ago rendered them obsolete, antique oak ice boxes remain popular with collectors, even though they’re expensive and hard to find. This do-it-yourself version is neither: it’s both inexpensive and easy to build. An authentic reproduction of an original, the project is especially popular when used as a bar, but it has many
Some tools required to build a picture frame are a table saw, miter saw, measuring tape, wood glue etc. A table saw with a backing board and miter gauge can be used to get the right angle and lengths of picture frame every time. You can use builders square to arrange the final cut pieces before nailing, screwing or gluing. Check out the video tutorial below for more details.
Beginners will find this program most beneficial because it teaches them many things that they do not know in the past about woodworking processes. The plans were done in such a way that you can easily understand it. This is because they have material lists, custom designs, and other useful information that can help anybody for any type of woodworks that he wants to do.
It might not be the easiest project in this list, but if you already have some experience with wood cutting and joinery, it won’t be any hassle at all. Thanks to the extremely detailed instructions it shouldn’t really be a problem even if you’re not very familiar with woodworking. This could actually be a great project for refining your woodworking skills as a beginner!
The source above is not exactly a tutorial, but it gives you a basic idea of how the author built a Quirky Pallet Art to enhance the look of their old house. You can also find another tutorial at the link below. It shares a step by step procedure for making a wooden pallet sign. The final product is not exactly the same as the one above, but the basic idea is the same.

This rack can be built from old unused wood pallets you can find around the house. So it is also a great way to recycle those old pallets. You can also find a step by step tutorial at instructables.com for which I have included the source link below. This tutorial helps you to make a wood wine rack from the scratch. So what are waiting for? Just grab the items you need and start building a cool wooden rack for those nice wine bottles of yours.
A woodworker's Workbench is a special type of bench designed to hold your work when you are working on a wood project. The main purpose of this table is to keep the woodwork steady and to prevent it from moving. Follow the tutorial below to build yourself a nice workbench suitable for your specific woodworking projects. Make sure to modify the table to fit your specific requirements.
These 25 projects are absolutely stunning, to say the least. I would love to try out some of these designs all by myself and get started with some serious woodworking that I have been procrastinating for a long time. My favorites among these 25 are definitely the desk organizer, the bowling lane, and the tiered planter, but nevertheless, all are good in their own ways. I believe these projects only require hand tools and basic power tools like a rudimentary router and a jigsaw.
Your garden tools need a clean, dry, and accessible locale to keep safe from natures elements. A smart option is to build a handsome wood lean-to shed against the house near the patio or garden. If it's made from cedar, a naturally rot-resistant wood, it will weather nicely while protecting your goods from precipitation and insects alike. You can make one in a weekend out of off-the-shelf lumber or buy a panelized kit that screws ­together in under an hour.

I am sharing here a link to the detailed tutorial written by Pete at diypete.com, who shares the step by step process for making a wonderful barrel coffee table from scratch. He also tells you what items you’ll need for this project and where to find them. For example, you can buy an old whiskey barrel online or from a local whiskey store for a few bucks, if you haven’t already got one.
By video tutorial, you will get step by step process instructions of making a nice wooden folding sling chair from scratch. However, my first wooden chair was not the best one, but it was good enough to motivate me to make some more folding chairs like this one. If I can make this, you too can make one yourself. You can browse the internet for more folding sling chairs ideas and start making one now.
You can also use Google image search to research a project. Unlike the PDF search, the image search provides a photo of what the project will look like, which is helpful in determining if you want to pursue building it. By doing an image search for how to build a step stool, you will have a ton of options that all lead to woodworking plans of various quality. (The how to part of these is important—otherwise you’ll just get pictures of step stools.)
After some research I found a tangled web of affiliate sites that link to “Ted” and his plans. These affiliates are raking in the money making 75% commission on his “plans.” Unsuspecting customers pay and receive copies of plans from old woodworking magazines that were illegally scanned. They also get links to free plans on the internet like my own and other DIY bloggers (listed at the bottom of this page) who have worked hard to provide this content to you for free.
Let's assume 0.5% of people who visit buy the plans. People generally refer to such percentages as "conversion rate". Ted's affiliate page actually claims a 10% conversion rate, but I see no reason to believe any of Ted's claims. At 100,000 visitors per month, a 1% conversion rate means 1000 sales per month, at $67 per sale, that's $67,000 (67k) per month, or $804k per year. If all those sales were affiliate sales, Ted would only keep about $200k per year. But I would expect that at least a third of Ted's sales are not affiliate sales. Affiliates boost Ted's page on Google, but they don't get paid for that. So if one third of Ted's sales are thru search engines, Ted would keep the $22k for those. Paying 75% commission on the remaining 44k would leave Ted a total of $33k per month, or $396k per year. A lucrative scam, even by conservative estimates.
