Woodwork Projects

All the woodwork projects found on this page are designed to be made with just a few basic woodworking tools, using project timber that is readily available in most hardware stores.

Project timber is also known as white wood, or dressed all round, this is knot free finger jointed pine, ready to use. It may be more expensive than raw unprocessed timber, but is well worth it unless you have all the machinery to do this yourself.

All the plans featured here are complete with step by step instructions. Free to download as a PDF file with no obligation to register your email address or any other personal details.

Feel free to build any one of these projects for you own personal use, to give away to family or friends, or even to sell at your local market.

You may also freely distribute the plans you download without any changes or amendments. Please use this contact me form if you have any questions.
