Teds Woodworking “OPEN BOX” Review

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

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:

  • blueprints
  • step-by-step assembly instructions
  • the documented product

I document these three features below.

Here are the blueprints for the 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.

  1. I can see why you’d be a little irked that the plans were not all uniform in style. It makes it take longer to look through them. Of course, it doesn’t effect the integrity of each individual plan and I’d still buy it, but really, it would have just taken a minute for Ted to reformat the oddball patterns.

  2. That document chest looks pretty sweet! I’m just getting into woodworking, and I’m sure I have a lot to learn. For example, what kind of wood was used here? It looks amazing.
