Getting free woodworking plans is the best way to begin your hobby or small business in building furniture and woodworking. Learning woodworking is a good way to start a new career or turn your hobby into a money making business. It all begins with good plans.
The quality of woodworking plans available on the internet greatly varies. Some are good enough for everyone to build, but many leave out key dimensions or material lists. While the plans are free, they really don’t give you everything you need to actually build the item. The plans on this page are the kinds of plans that you should look for when looking for designs on the internet.
Once you have a collection of woodworking plans it is easy to modify them and customize them to make them unique to you as a craftsman. If you want to sell your pieces, it is best not to have furniture that looks exactly like everyone elses. Feel free to experiment. Try different styles of wood. Change some dimensions to make the item bigger or smaller. If you aren’t comfortable making those kinds of changes, then take your time building your confidence in woodworking and in time you’ll be designing your own plans.
