Woodworking Projects

I've spent a lot of time looking through book after book and website after website trying to find the perfect woodworking projects. It's tiring. My grandpa always seemed to have a great idea for his next project. He would draw inspiration from antique stores, auctions and even regular retail stores. He had an amazing ability to look at something and find a way to either rebuild it exactly or build something like it. His woodworking hobby saved him plenty of money and served as a great hobby. He spent hours in his shop building all kinds of wonderful things.

I've spent a lot of time myself building my own projects but I have trouble coming up with inspiration. I enjoy woodworking not searching for projects. It seems like a total waste of time to me. Often I'll pick up a woodworking book, flip through it and it is either full of projects I have already done, simple things I'm not interested in or the instructions are too confusing for me to even get started. Sometimes I'll even start a project and have to abandon the whole thing in the middle of building something just because the instructions aren't clear enough and don't provide any hints on how to move forward.

So I went out on a mission to find the ultimate source for woodworking projects. I wanted something that had enough content to keep me busy for a lifetime, yet I wanted the information to be organized in such a way that if I feel like doing something in particular I could just easily go right to it. I wanted the instructions to be clear, understandable and put in a step by step style that I could follow without issue. I didn't want a giant book of simple projects a fifth grader could do but I wanted something that made sense.

After days of searching I found just that, exactly what I was looking for. I have built many things from a dog house to furniture that I can use full time. I couldn't be more happy with what I have found. In order to share this I built a website to help get this amazing find out to the world. I'm saving a ton of time from not having to search for projects that I can now help others get to where I have. I wish I would have found this years ago and I think even my grandpa would love it.
