I looked it over at a glance. If you are new to woodworking, at $67 it's probably a good buy, but you have to be careful with plans. Sometimes they just don't make sense in that their cut list measurements don't match the details. I've made a few things according to plans that just didn't work right so now I can design my own projects or even look at a picture and build something to my specs.

But if you're new to woodworking - that is probably a good purchase to have!

Its' never hot or cold in New Hampshire... its' always seasonal.

Here we go again. It's a scam. Don't buy anything from Ted.

Why is it consider a scam? It's worthwhile to purchase it, I won't consider it to be expensive, Ted's woodworking guide are easily understood and moreover there are so many plans he provide. Check it out again..

I've never heard of this Ted guy or his plans, but from what I've read here..I'm not missing much. Part of the fun of doing this stuff is to be able to come up with plans of your own.

Purchasing 16,000 plans is akin to purchasing a set of 10 forstner bits when you only need 2 of them. Why not search around for the plans you want, purchase those individually and save yourself a few dollars in the mean time?

I work with other peoples plans every day. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't. Heck, sometimes my own don't even work the way I thought they would.

Coming up with ideas and seeing them develop is what makes this stuff fun to do.

Yes dlb you're right to say that, purchase individually, as and when you need it, but since there are about 16000 plans lay down in front of you, with all the blueprint and step by step guide in how to fix it, moreover you'll be getting 4 more time bonus books worth US$300 wouldn't it be a good idea to get it at this at such cheap price?

By the way......shouldn't Ted have more to do than troll the internet signing up for internet forums if his plans are so good?
