Before I tell you about my favorite project – wooden coffee table, and before I’ll give some useful tips about where to get the coffee table plans from, I want to tell you about my first woodworking project.
As I mentioned earlier, I’m not a carpenter but since the last year I’m building wood projects, especially small wood furniture for home, not as a profession but as a hobby.
The beginning was difficult and things don’t go as well as I’ve expected, specially because I’ve worked according to an inappropriate woodworking plans.
I remember my first woodworking project, it was a cabinet for my wife, Emmy. She wanted to buy just a small wooden cabinet so I suggested that I’ll try building one myself.
I remember the difficulties of getting some quality wooden cabinet plans. The first design I’ve made was according to woodworking plans that a friend of mine gave me.
The second design was according to plans that I’ve got for free from an internet website for woodworking projects.
The results were shocking!!! It was horrible…I mean, I knew that I don’t have an experience but I was still amazed…it looks nothing like as the plans shows. It looked so unprofessional (after all, it was me that build it:)), so cheap and inaccurate .
I remember myself being so frustrated, thinking of giving up and buy the wooden cabinet for Emmy, and then one of my friends told me about website that contain 14,000 woodworking plans and he personally tried it and he’s very satisfied with his result.
I decided to give it a shot and surprisingly after building the cabinet using the plan from this website, it looks much better.
That was my first woodworking project. Since that one I’ve made few more wooden furniture for me and my family or for my friends always using woodworking4home website.
It’s very friendly database that provides high-quality designs, including step-by-step instructions, detailed photos and it suites for both pro and beginner’s levels.
