Tips For Finding Quality Wood Working Plans

You have to take into account a few things before embarking on any wood working project. First and foremost, you need to select good wood working plans. Good plans will lay out everything in detail and leave nothing whatsoever to your imagination.


The second thing which you need to take into account is how complex are the plans. Be sure you do not start with a very complicated plan that even someone who is a very experience wood worker will have a tough time figuring out the plans.

Be sure that you can follow the instructions given in the plans before you begin and also ensure that you possess all the necessary tools and equipment. If you don't, are you ready and willing to spend to buy the necessary tools and equipment? You should also be willing to commit to the necessary time to finish the project.

Wood working plans may also be categorized based on quality. Essentially, the plans should be laid out very well and have sufficient details. The plans should also have good illustrations and pictures. Better plans should have more illustrations and pictures because "a picture is worth a thousand words". This is particularly true if you are building something for your very first time. Text shall not provide as much understanding and insight like good pictures or plans.

Basically, many wood working plans come with a cut list. A cut list, is a list of all the required lumber for the project. Cut list also comes with board cutting instructions. If you cut the lumber first before assembling, your job will be much easier. Also you can paint the pieces before putting them together. By doing this, you shall skip the hassle of having to climb a ladder to pain the top of your 10' board when everything has been put together. So, make sure the plans you wish to purchase have a cut list.

Woodworking Plans - Useful Woodworking Tips For Newbies

Apart from being a profession, woodworking can be a huge fun for you if you are a newbie. Be sure to follow this article down to the resource box, to enable you find more useful tips. These woodworking tips are definitely going to help you build some good woodwork, and set you on your way to making it a hobby.

The first thing you should be concerned about in your woodworking plans is to see how far the money you have can take you. Frankly, you do not need a jumbo budget to come out with something extraordinary when you want to kick-start your project. The woods, and most especially the tools can be expensive, but I am pretty sure you can make do with the little you have. You can have all the money in the world, and still unable to come out with some inspiring woodworking plans.

The next thing you need is to have your tools assembled. You should never bother yourself about going into wood working if you do not have your tools in place. Make sure every bit of what you need to have your work in place is intact. Doing otherwise will be almost like putting the cart before the horse. As a newbie, you can get some woodworking tools that are inexpensive, but of high quality. The tips in this article are not going to do you any good if you miss this one. So, start with what you have and see how far it takes you.

Another important tip to have some fair knowledge about the kind of woods you want to use for your project. You want to know the usefulness of some of the woods you are going to be making use of. A wood like Pine costs much less than the Oak wood, and is easier to work with. As a newbie, go for a Pine wood, and avoid taking unnecessary risks with the Oak wood which might cost you a lot if you make a mistake. Go ahead and spend some time in picking the right wood from a stack until you find what you want.

Tips on Building Your Own Shed Workbench

The new wooden storage shed built in the corner of the backyard has just become your new workshop shed and you have 120 square feet of empty space. The little portable workbench that you have been using up to now is no longer big enough. With this new prime working space you can take on bigger projects so a bigger shed workbench is in order. So why not make one yourself? There are some things that make a really good workbench. Here are some tips that I think might have some benefit.


In the workshop the workbench is the center of operations. The bench must be built strong and be able to withstand the forces applied to it when projects are clamped down on it. The work surface of the bench must be perfectly flat otherwise any assembly work done on the top will reflect any deformities that exist on the work surface.

A good workbench should have the top covered with hardboard that can be removed when it becomes damaged and another can be installed. (You will always have a nice surface to work on). A vice at one end of the bench is a good idea. A right handed person will want to attach the vice to the left hand side of the bench and vice versa for a left handed person.

Another good tip is to drill holes at intervals on the bench top so that you can insert "dogs" or bench stops. When planing or sawing a work piece it can be wedged against the dogs to hold the piece secure. To keep tools out of the way while working the bench should have a recessed area along one side where the tools are stored while not using them. To keep the bench square and stable a shelf can be can be built below and adding a drawer for small items is beneficial and also protects against loss. Good heavy duty legs will provide support when hammering or using a mallet.

You will want to hold your work square and secure so it pays to buy a quality vice which is a very important piece of equipment. A good vice can be purchased from any tool store. With a few strips of plywood and some hardwood blocks fastened to one end of the bench, a very good tool holder is created. A square of plywood with a lip that hooks over the front of the bench and a backstop that supports a work piece makes for an excellent bench hook. A sheet of pegboard and some metal hangers fastened to the wall above the workbench is a good way to store tools and other items. Wooden pegs can be used for hanging hand saws.
