Woodworking plans

I have drawn plans for many of the woodworking projects on this website. Each of these plans has an accompanying article showing the actual construction of the project.

Most of these woodworking plans were drawn in Google Sketchup, a free 3D CAD program downloadable from Google. For most plans, the SketchUp model is included, so you can check out different views of the projects and parts.
