Topic tags/keywords: furniture plans

Just curious of everyone’s favorite vendor for full sized furniture plans? I’m hoping that we can get a few new vendors listed.

Thanks in advance.

Wish I could do that. My designs are less than good. Give me a good plan and there’s pretty good chance that I can build whatever it is. But if I have to figure out all the ins=and outs of a design – I’m lost.

Betsy,

Made this a while back. The plans were OK.

I’ve only bought one set of plans as long as I’ve been woodworking, Norm’s plans for a Lutchens bench. I never did use the plans because I found a Lutchens bench cheaper than I could of bought the wood for.

I really like these: http://www.craftsmanplans.com/index.html

FWW looks good. I’ve never used their plans, but the video workshops have helped when my project has even a remote resemblance to theirs. Installing the twin screw video on their workbench project had some great ideas. They are short but sweet. I never really do it the way they do, but for some reason I feel better having seen them.???? May need a paid membership, easily worth the money:

If I were you, I would buy some 4’ x 8’ layout board (card stock) and make my own. This will give you an idea of the problems that you will face and may suggest solutions at the same time.
Good luck’
