Review- Ted’s Woodworking
In this post, I wanted to cover another vital skill to those who want to be more self-sufficient. Woodworking is a skill that you will find comes in handy when you are thinking about green living or living off the grid. On the other hand it’s a really useful and just plain fun hobby.
In this Ted’s Woodworking review I’m going to list the pros and cons of this product so you can decide for yourself if this is something you might want to have as a resource for you and your family.
What is Ted’s Woodworking?
Ted’s Woodworking is a website that shows you step by step instructions for 16,000 woodworking projects. Yes, I said 16 Thousand! The woodworking projects to be found at Ted’s Woodworking are organized into sections so you can find them fairly quickly to narrow down the project you want to tackle next. All the diagrams and instructions are right there, along with a detailed list of all the materials you’ll need to complete the project.
Easy To Follow Instructions
If you’ve ever tried to complete a woodworking project and it just didn’t turn out as you thought, or you got stuck and didn’t finish, it probably wasn’t your fault. Many times you find that the instructions and information you were given just weren’t complete. This is where Ted’s Woodworking excels. They provide you with clear and concise instructions which are easy for even a novice to read and understand. The included diagrams are easy to follow so you will be able to complete your project. You get step-by-step instructions that you can easily follow.
The plans you get with Ted’s Woodworking are so well written even the novice will find that they can finish these projects.
You Get Everything You Need
-Diagrams which are detailed with a full set of dimensions
-Step-by-step instructions on how to start your project
-The necessary materials for that particular project
-All the woodworking tools you will need
Some Plans Include Video Instructions
Some of the plans also include video instruction for those who want to start out with step by step visual instructions. Some of the videos include how to build:
- Home Furniture
- Dog Houses
- Bird Feeders
- And many more
There is lifetime member access included when you purchase the package, so you get a lot of extras included at no cost. This benefit alone is worth more than the cost of the package.
Ted McGrath is an experienced woodworker with years of experience. Ted knows what he’s talking about when it comes to woodworking and DIY projects. So you have a master woodworker who has reviewed and put together this list of projects. What could be better than that?
A review would not be complete without listing any cons that come with the product. The only drawback that I could find when looking at Ted’s Woodworking website is that some of the plans were listed in a slightly disorganized fashion. But in my opinion that is understandable. When you have 16,000 woodworking plans there are bound to be a few that just don’t neatly fit into a category.
The second drawback is that the downloads make take a while if you have a slow internet connection, due to the size of the files. Especially the plans with video files may take a little longer to download. However, if the downloads take too long because you have slow internet, the member’s area has an option to order all the plans on DVD so you don’t have to spend the time downloading them.
Is Ted’s Woodworking worth the money you will spend? Absolutely. I don’t know of another site that offers the number of plans and plan detail that Ted’s Woodworking offers. And now is the best time to take advantage of this offer. Ted is planning to break these plans down and sell them individually soon. That means the price will definitely increase if you have to buy each plan separately. So take advantage of lifetime access to all the files and plans while you still can.
