DIY Woodworking for Everyone

Amateur Woodworker is a free resource enjoyed by many in the DIY woodworking community. We provide a large number of free woodworking plans. Unfortunately, while it is free to read, it's not free to keep afloat. We have considered many alternatives, such as charging for access to individual plans or having an annual subscription, but none of these seem to sit right with us. We want Amateur Woodworker to continue providing free and open access to one and all. So please consider donating a small sum to help keep Amateur Woodworker on the Web.
