Location: Ottawa, Canada

I'm a retired it technical person that loves to work with wood as a hobby.
I found wood to be more manageable for all kinds of projects.
Due to limited access to my workshop a few years ago, I resorted to reducing the scale of my projects in order to build these monsters on my kitchen table without my power tools. Everybody who saw my work wanted the plans so out came the auto cad program and numerous hours on my computer.
Being in the service industry all my life I could not stand on the side line and do nothing. I had to help them to get going.
I am amazed at the lack of realistic quality plans for different scales.
Being an IT teacher I realize that the diversity of technical skills often limit people from trying to develop their creativity and express themselves in the best way they can and be successful in their ventures. So I created plans with options for the different levels of difficulty. Good luck in all your ventures, they are all great no matter how small they appear.

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a few months ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…

Some people are asking what i use to make my plans. Well I use “Woodworking Projects for Everyone” made by
The trick with this program is to set your dimensions and printer and save it as a template. Then you copy the template and use it for your projects by re naming the files.
The only drawback I found was to not be able to print more than one view or layer at any given time.
Yes the table plans are in a step by step PDF or printed versions with a list of materials and cuts and pictures.
These are not availlable on my site, but could be if there is interest. Let me know.
