Kreg Owners' Community

Does anyone know of any good free wood working plans or sites out there? I am a beginner wood worker and want to start working on stuff for my daughters, wife and house.

Hi Chris - Welcome to the forum:)

One of the best free plan sites I've seen is Ana White. Especially for newbies. I thought there was a link from the kregjig home page but I don't see it anymore. Any way, try this:

Here is one of my favorites.

Thanks John and Will!! My wife found Ana White about 4 months ago and I have been addicted ever since. Haven't had a chance to check out the design confidential yet but will here in a few. Thanks for replying and if you find anymore, please let me know. By the way John, Ana White is where I found the plans to build my bar stools for my wife. Turned out pretty good, but might make some new ones since I now have my Kreg Jig.


Hi Chris Try www.vintageinternetplans .com

Hey Chris,

don't forget to look through old back issues of DIY, woodworking, or home improvement magazines...i find them at yard sales, auctions, or local classified ads. Then I cut out the best plans/articles and put them in a three ring binder to take up less space.

Google Books has a hundred years' worth of back issues of Popular Mechanics, which often has good plans.
Also look at Absolutely Free Plans and In addition many woodworking mags have sites that offer free plans if you sign up for their newsletters.

Def, VERY BEST plans available and all FREE. she takes pottery barn furniture, 1000 dollar furniture and breaks it down,  very simple to build. I have a link on my blog, and also, have pics of the projects I've been working on from there. Believe my, your wife/daughter will love this site. I have a list a mile long from my daughters of things to make. 

Good luck

There is another free woodworking plans site too. Here is the address It has alot of plans you could download or print out. It is label from a to z. Check it out. It even has stuff for kids to do too.

 Good Luck

I tried this site out, I'm building a wishing well, just started, little bit more intense than Ana's site, I had to do a little figuring, mostly outdoor stuff, I like this site as well.

good luck,

I purchased the ACS directly from Kreg 2 weeks ago. This morning I finished the assembly with the exception of installing the measuring tapes. The assembly took me about 4 hours, between reading the manual, watching videos and sipping coffee. I'm…Continue

K5 Review

I really like the k5 it is faster to change from different size of screws. I hesitated to update because of some of the reviews about the dust collection hook up. That to me one of the improvements it works perfect no dust to cleanup .…
