These are plans I have drawn at some point since 1998 for my own use or at the request of customers and now they are available to you. All plans are available in a PDF format. If you would like to have the associated Sketchup file so you can modify the plan to suit your needs it may be purchased from $1.95 – $8.95 depending on the complexity of the drawing for any of the furniture, jigs or shop made tool plans shown on the website. If you purchase both the PDF and Sketchup file you will save an additional 30 percent.

There are now 106 plans to choose from, not to mention the 250 or so free plans and jigs available to registered users. The free plans are not my drawings just free plans I have saved  since I started woodworking several years ago.

 

Register today …… it’s FREE and there is no catch  You may receive an email every two or three months…. just to inform you of new plans or website updates.

As woodworkers we are always looking for new ideas either for ourselves or for family, friends and clients. That is the reason I have decided to share what I have drawn up. So load your new plan on your I-pad, laptop, or whatever or just print them off and head to the shop. 

 

Some of the plans are one of a kind, some are from pictures I’ve seen while looking for plans and some are designs I have drawn up for other folks. All plans are distributed in a PDF format. You will require a PDF viewer like Adobe Reader to open the plans. Just click the icon below for the free download. If you want to use the Sketchup files you can download the free version of Sketchup Make (2014) here.

After you register I will email you a members only password so you can access the free plans and jigs.  As a small thank you, you will also receive an instructional PowerPoint presentation “Bandsaw Boxes Made Easy” that I made awhile back.

Bruce,

I love the website and look forward to being able to complete some of these projects. I am having an issue accessing the free plans, though. Paid ones, not an issue. The password that was sent to me in my welcome email allowed me to register to the site, but it will not open any of the plans. What do i need to do to fix that issue?

Thanks!

By WoodChuck Mon Mar 31st 2014 at 11:31 am  

The free plans require a secondary password which I just sent you in a separate personal email.
Thanks for registering. Enjoy your woodworking.

Nevermind. I guess I didn’t wait for the second email to come through. Thanks for the quick response! Can’t wait to get building!

Hello
When I connect to the link you send on the introductory pdf I have access to a few folders. Which ones )if any) are the free ones and how do I download them.?
I’m looking for a simple homemade dovetail jig…
Thanks and sorry for the inconvenience

By WoodChuck Thu Mar 13th 2014 at 2:05 pm  

Hi you have access to all of those files, I just put them in alphabetical sequence as I upload up more.
You can right click on any of them and click save as or just click on the file to open it and then save under the file menu
I do have dovetail jigs on the site as well that might interest you. Just search all plans using dovetail as the key word.
Cheers
Bruce

If you are trying to access the free (protected plans) , you will need to use the password I just sent you with your new member registration letter. Let me know if you still have problems after trying that.

Sorry you are having a problem. The password you require is the one provided when you registered. It was in your welcome letter. Now additional free plans for members are located in a separate location. I will contact you directly with the information. Bruce
