Detail and clarity from start to finish.
The projects and plans on this site were created with immense enthusiasm and passion. Every project was designed with ease of construction in mind, whether cutting with a scroll saw or CNC machine. All plans contain full scale patterns for wood parts, lists of all required parts and hardware, tips for an accurate and successful build, and illustrated step-by-step assembly instructions.
Standard formats: PDF + DXF
Each set of plans includes two PDF documents and multiple DXF files.
The PDF files come in two sizes. One is 8.5"x11" (letter) and contains the majority of the project's documentation. The other is 11"x17" (tabloid) and contains large patterns that cannot fit on smaller paper.
The DXF files contain spline-based patterns for plywood parts that can be loaded into CAM software and used with CNC machines.
