Created by Ted McGrath, Teds Woodworking is one of the most popular woodworking plans and projects packages online today. In this Teds Woodworking review we will take a look at this product and see what are the pros and cons of this package.
Teds Woodworking Review - What Exactly Is This Package?
Created by Ted McGrath, a professional woodworker, educator and AWI member, Teds Woodworking is a massive collection of more than 16,000 woodworking projects and blueprints which you can easily follow to build your own home furniture, garden chairs, dog houses, bird feeders, shed and many more.
Ted McGrath spent the last 2 years putting together his woodworking package and according to him this package is the most comprehensive online today.
However, with so many woodworking packages out on the market and on the internet today, Is Teds Woodworking really worth the money?
To answer this question and to find if this package is really for you lets talk about some of the pros and cons of Ted McGrath's woodworking package.
Teds Woodworking Review - The Pros And Cons
Suitable For Different Levels
There is no doubt that many woodworkers can benefit from this package. Beginners will find these woodworking plans' clear and concise nature gives them a solid foundation to build their first projects as they build their confidence to move on to more complex carpentry projects and increase their skill level. Advanced and professional woodworkers will appreciate the huge variety of different projects and the time saving value of having a high quality set of plans waiting for virtually any challenge.
Very Useful Bonuses
When you order Teds woodworking package you will also receive these 3 bonuses:
1. Free drawing and CAD plan viewer
2. 150 premium woodworking videos
3. The Complete Woodworking Carpentry Guide
The complete woodworking carpentry guide (a 200 pages guide with carpentry tips and tricks) is very useful for beginners and the premium videos can help any woodworker to hone his carpentry skills.
With 16,000 plans, you'd expect Teds Woodworking to be pretty disorganized. However I found it pretty easy to find the exact project I wanted.
Money Back Guarantee
The product comes with 60 days money back guarantee and if you are not completely satisfied with what you get, you will receive your money back.
It May Take Time To Download The Package
The size of this download package is not small and if you have slow internet connection it may take you a couple of hours to download all the blueprints.
In this case it may be a good idea to upgrade to the DVD edition (you can do it at the members' area).
Some Broken Links
A few links to some chair and bird feeders plans in the members' area were broken when I checked them lately.
May Be A Little Overwhelming At First
Just because there are so many different woodworking projects and plans, the members' area can be a little overwhelming at first. However the plans are organized by category and once you get started, you will find it is not difficult to find what you are looking for.
Teds Woodworking Review - The Bottom Line
Overall, there is no doubt that Teds Woodworking is a very comprehensive and detailed woodworking package that comes with a great amount of solutions for any kind of woodworking project you might think of.
There are other great woodworking packages online and some of them are cheaper than this one, but I seriously doubt that you will find any package that is so comprehensive as this one with its thousands of detailed instructions for all kinds of projects, great bonuses and very good customer support.
