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,

Pantry slides for heavy application

  Recently purchased two 96" tall pantry cabinets that are 23" deep that only came with two adjustable shelves and two fixed, (one at about 55" and one at the very bottom).  Shelf holes in the walls are drilled 2" O.C.  Like most store-bought…Continue

Miter Saw Recommendation

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
