usually those are a ripoff… they are collections of plans that you can find for free online, and they usually are poorly done, and of things you wouldn’t have a desire to build anyways.

And to be honest, this looks like a post just to get clicks onto your site. First posts with suspicious looking links reek of spam.

my plans usually consist of an idea, a napkin & a sharpie. crudely drawn shapes with dimensions. #’s are all I need.

I was spammed with this on another board. I was repulsed by the approach but don’t know of its quality.

Check out this site.
They are absolutely free. Some of the plans ae from old American Woodworker magazines that are no loner copywritten and the entire is scanned in. There are multiple plans for just about any piece of furniture, woodworking toy, jig, or fixture you can imagine.
