    I know we have many accomplished wood workers, carpenters, and cabinet makers within the membership. I don't consider myself in the same category, so I often look at someone elses plan. I found a nice web site that carries and sells plans at a reasonable price. You can download files in PDF format. They are clear, good use of color, and easy to understand. Here is the web site http://www.plansnow.com/index.html

    P.S. I just bought a new table saw in anticipation of some work on the new dig. This should be another learning curve...

    I am going to back up Rich's approval of the site! Excellent service and selection. They have a newsletter and offer all sorts of neat discounts and their library of available plans is truly extensive.

    They also have quite a few free plans.

    Then there are the shop tips, and free advice.

    The site is a must for novice and pro alike!

    Cheers!

    Good site Rich!
    I am looking for plans to build a roll around cart that I can store all my smoking paraphrenalia in, thermometers, trays, cutting boards, knives, aluminum foil, paper towels, mitts, lighter, electric charcoal lighter, chimney, rubs, spices, etc. I want the top to be 90% cutting board for prep and easy to clean. I want a closeable top that covers the entire top of the cart. A small "cold storage area" for "something cool to drink" would be a plus, so I don't dehydrate [​IMG] (hey, it gets HOT here)
    It needs large enough wheels it can navigate unpaved yard areas, pneumatic I think.
    Don't want much. [​IMG] I'm thinking, it could happen. I may start drawing plans at any time.

    Geez, Mike!

    Sounds like your project will need about fifteen horsepower and an overweight permit! [​IMG]

    Cheers!

    I am also a member of WoodNet and the Wood forum. I also have all the Woodsmith and Wood magazines from the beginning of time... There are countless projects in the magazines and I have used many of them mostly for ideas as I like to design most of my projects. I did once buy a plan from Norm Abram's site to build my router table and it turned out awesome.

    Woodworking is my passion but somehow I got bit by the smoking bug and now my woodworking has taken a back seat for the time being... lol

    I collect all kinds of wood for projects. I recently tore down an old cedar fence on my side yard that was pretty well gone. I love to make projects out of scraps and leftovers. I'm currently using the cedar fencing to build a log cabin bird feeder I designed last year.

    A couple of weeks ago I went to my barn to bring down some fire wood for the house and realized that it was kirk walnut I have had for about 3 years. So I cut some up with my band saw and used it with some oak to smoke a couple of chickens... Turned out great. The walnut is really mild and worked well with the white oak I had from an old fence post...

    Here is a picture of my bird feeder made entirely out of scrap cedar except for the roof base. I cut the shingles out of cedar and glue them to ¼" plywood...
