Testimonials

Real feedback from real customers...

"I find this resource a valuable addition to my library of reference materials. I have built the table saw cross cut sled and the dovetail jigs that go with it. Your tips are insightful and relevant to what most of us intermediate beginner woodworkers need to know..."

Mike H.

"I am delighted with what I see on essentials project plans
So far I have made the crosscut sled which worked out really well, the plans were so easy to follow. I am now working on the mitre sled and a modified workbench..."

John W.

"The new sled is complete and I love it!! Used the 45-degree jig and got a perfect picture frame. I added a place to hold my pencils, square and tape measure since I’m always looking for one.
Thanks for the great plans!"
