Like many others, I got the woodworking bug, and went out and purchased Ted’s Woodworking Package. I was overall happy I did, but I do have some criticisms of this set of woodworking plans, which I detail below. What follows are my personal observations of this package.
What I Like about Ted’s Woodworking
Here is a short list of nice features that I like, in Ted’s Woodworking Package:
- over 15,000 Woodworking plans
- DWG CAD file viewer included
- 3-D Modelling Software included
- A large variety of woodworking plans
- Good value for the money
- A nice selection of Woodworking Tips and Tricks
- For those interested, a how-to guide for starting a woodworking business
- Great customer support
Importantly, other websites typically have excellent plans, but they are rather expensive, and limited in number.
What I Don’t Like about Ted’s Woodworking
Ted’s Woodworking plans are not uniform in style. This is just a minor nit, but it would have been nice to have a uniform presentation style for all these plans. Also, the woodworking plans should have beginner, intermediate, and expert ratings. Instead, the plans are presented as is. A novice woodworker might have trouble with some of these plans.
The video section needs to be beefed up a bit. Not only does the entire video section need additional content, but the video variety seems to be lacking. I mean, do you really need to see some video content from Loew’s?

A typical woodworking plan from Ted’s Woodworking
So, now that you have seen the broad outlines of the package, let’s burrow down and see what a typical plan entails. For example’s sake, let’s say you want to build a document chest. In these woodworking plans, you get the entire spectrum of instructions, including:
- step-by-step assembly instructions
- the documented product
I document these three features below.
Here are the blueprints for the document chest:
Below are the Assembly instructions for the document chest, in part.
Lastly, here is the final document chest.
In summary, we see what a typical plan from Ted’s Woodworking includes, and the amount of detail that is provided for the user’s utility. I was impressed, although I’m not a professional woodworker.
