    Lovely woodworking idea! So inspiring! 😍

    While YouTube is great for finding information on woodworking and how to start your first project—finding simple to follow, step-by-step woodworking plans is something I rarely find in YouTube videos.

    If anyone is looking for dimensional plans that lay out the entire process of a project—piece by piece and step-by-step—I highly recommend Ted’s Woodworking Guide that consist of 16,000 woodworking plans. Here's a link to his site.

    It’s an excellent guide with thousands of plans that go into detail about how to complete various projects.

    I believe it costs around $60-70, but the content within is well worth the price.

    Me and my hubby can't recommend it enough. Good luck! 🙂
