Examples of projects completed from Ted’s Woodworking Plans
I’ve had my eye on Ted’s 16, 000 woodworking plans for some time.
It seemed too good to be true. Even though I’m not an avid woodworker, I figured if I made one or a few of the projects from the kit it would be money well spent.
My curiosity got the best of me. I bit the bullet and bought it. They offer a refund so I figured if it was totally worthless I could ask for my money back.
Is is too good to be true?
Not really. It’s pretty good. It’s not perfect, but it’s good.
Some of the plans are so bad but are included just to beef up the sales pitch of “16, 000” plans.
And then some of the plans are great. Some are okay. I’m not surprised it’s not perfect. It’s a massive collection and mishmash of different plans for all kinds of products.
Here’s the mindset you should have if you buy Ted’s Woodworking. Accept the fact you won’t like every plan. In fact, accept you will probably not do 90% or more of them for any number of reasons such as the plans are bad and/or they aren’t projects you wish to build.
BUT, the few plans that you do like and that are decent quality, if you build them, will be make the cost of this digital collection of woodworking plans worth it.
Will I ask for my money back?
No. It’s worth the price I paid. Sure, I could ask for a refund and probably get it and still keep the plans (they’re digital in PDF form); however, that’s not my style. If I deem something worth the money I paid, I don’t ask for a refund. I’m pretty confident I’ll get my money’s worth in the long run.
Moreover, I’m assured in my Ted’s Woodworking member section that I’ll get access to new plans that are added in the future. Of course I have no idea if this will happen.
Is Ted’s Woodworking just a bunch of ripped off plans?
Some people online have suggested that Ted’s Woodworking plans are blatantly ripped off from a myriad of sources and put together into a mega digital “plans product”. In other words, they allege Ted’s Woodworking is a massive copyright infringement.
Is Ted’s Woodworking a copyright infringement product (i.e. a scam)?
I don’t know. It’s possible, but I don’t know so I’m not going to speculate. Any digital product could be.
I do know this product has been available for years which means if it was a huge copyright rip off, it seems to me the product would have been shut down by now. Of course, just because the product hasn’t been shut down doesn’t mean there isn’t copyright infringement… but I frankly can’t say one way or another.
It’s very possible Ted obtained a license to sell each plan and/or the plans are in public domain and/or Ted came up with some of the plans. I have no idea, but I never investigated with a fine-toothed comb either (who has time for that)?
Who should buy Ted’s Woodworking?
This is for people who like DIY projects. Most of the plans are labeled “beginner”, “intermediate” or “advanced” which is helpful.
Even if you’ve never built anything or done any woodworking, this is a pretty good set of plans to get going with because there are beginner projects included.
You can build all kinds of stuff for your home. See the list of plan categories below.
At the end of the day, if you do the odd DIY project or dabble in woodworking, this is a decent set of plans to have in your inventory.
