How do I get plans for a project?  I feel absolutely stupid for asking because I don't know. Thank for your answers. Ken

Kenny,

Over the years there have been many posts leading to free plans.  Type in free plans in the search box on the forums main page and you'll get pages of topic discussions related to plans.  It may take awhile to go through them all but you should find plenty.  As an alternative if you know what you want to build search for it, as an example "night stand plans" or "table plans" etc.  I'm working on a tutorial on how to develop your own woodworking plans.  Its a rather involved undertaking and it won't be completed until some time next year.  I'll post it once I'm completed.

Hope this helps, Don

Kenny,

Here is the post I was thinking of.  Lots of links to check out.

Hi Kenny

 There are loads of places to find plans. One of my favorite sites to start looking is www.ana-white.com there are literally thousands of step by step plans there.

 Also, you should never feel stupid asking for plans for any project!  If there are projects you really like that are posted on this site, just ask the person who posted it.  There are not always fully drawn up plans for everything, but the person will more often than not at least rough it out for you on the dimesions and steps.  The best part is that when you ask here, many of the mistakes in plans have already been made and you will get the "new and improved" version of anything out there :)

Happy building!

Thanks for the replies, I use ana white all the time, what I need to know is how do I get plans from the kreg community itself. I see things I like, but I can't seem to find a way to get the plans to download from the forum I guess. And thanks for answering, I hope you understand what I am referring to.

Easiest way to do that is to ask the person who posted it.  Generally plans are not included with posts, but most are more than happy to e-mail you either full plans or instructions. :)

Trouble with my new plug cutter

I am having issues cutting cedar plugs, they are too loose, too short and rough. When I read the online advice and forums they suggested using a higher speed drill. I went and got a corded drill to get better speed to cut smoother plugs. I thought…Continue

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…

Kreg Jig Dust Collection Attachment

1st impression when you hold this attachment in your hand:  "not much to it", Kreg sure is makin' $$ here.



Then I installed it.. perfect fit, leaves just enough room to adjust the setting screw on my K4.



Then the real test, hook…
