    I was looking at Facebook and saw a CD with 16,000 wood plans and several bonuses for 47.00 bucks. It's called Ted woodworking plans. Sounds pretty good but I thought I'd run it by you guys and gals and see if you know anyone or if you have it yourself and is it for real.

    Thanks Bill

    Bill most of those are rip offs, we had a couple of spammer on here a while back offering similar things. When we confronted them they left.

    This thread has some information on those plans.

    http://familywoodworking.org/forums/...dworking+plans

    There is an article in the May 2010 issue of Wood magazine by Tom Lovino "The Shop Monkey" called 'Monkey Business" that addresses this very issue.

    Basically, the gist of it is that these 'collections' of plans are typically poorly done, that they may not actually own the copyrights to the plans, and that they typically lack the type of instruction that someone new to the craft might need in order to be successful.

    He suggests either going to the library and checking out the books or to subscribe to a few decent magazines.

    Just in case you didn't sit through the whole video, here is that guys link to some sites that he considers reputable and has vetted. I haven't but I assume after watching the video that he has.

    BTW, The video isn't that long and it really is pretty good...
