How To Break Down and Handle Plywood 

Depending on the types of stores in your area, you may find most of the required materials from hardware stores, specialty stores, and big-box home stores.

Amazon is a great place online to find items you can't find locally.

When you make a purchase on Wood Shop Essentials, watch your inbox, you'll get a link to my resources page, where I link directly to the same materials and hardware I use in my projects.

I know how frustrating it can be to follow plans that don't provide links. It leaves you searching sometimes for hours online for the right parts.

That's why I always post the exact materials I use so you can easily find them, and buy the same ones, or at least get an idea of exactly what it is I use, so you can find them locally if that's what you prefer.

Aboslutely yes! We offer multiple ways to buy here on Wood Shop Essentials, including credit cards, paypal, and others.

Each payment type is fully encrypted, and we do not handle your purchase information directly. Instead, the payment processors handle and manage the entire transaction.
