Just How Important Are Woodworking Plans?

"Just How Important Are Woodworking Plans?"," The feeling of turning a natural resource into a doghouse or even a beautifully-crafted piece of furniture is just amazing.
 Read on to see how to avoid that frustration and enjoy the fruits of your labor.
 What type of wood are you gong to use and why? That's what I thought.
 You don't know unless you've made a few dressers before and you're getting pretty good at it, or more simply, if you go on line and get a good woodworking plan.
 Unless you're some kid who owns a $50 billion company called Facebook, you probably have a limited budget for your project, and starting with the right plan is the best way to stay with that budget.
 But don't forget that you're on a budget.
 Developing your workshop is something that will happen as you personally develop in skill and enjoyment of woodworking.
 Free or Purchased Woodworking Plans? I keep using the 'B' word, but the truth is, especially in today's economy, we're all on a budget.
 A word of advice - you will save much, much more in the long-run, or even on a single project, but having the right selection of plans, and they usually don't come free.
 Why? Their diagrams are confusing, unclear, or even wrong and they often skip important parts.
 And even if you do find one, it may not be the exact plan that is right for you.

The Absolute Answer

Years of frustration have taught me this one thing.
 You don't have to spend much to get good plans, but you absolutely must be sure to get high quality plans that will help turn your passion into a lifetime of enjoyment.
