How to Win at Woodworking

As a non-woodworker, I wasn’t sure I could do it…until I did.

Let’s be honest for a minute.

Terran Marks – Blacksmith


I’m a blacksmith by trade, but I’ve dabbled with woodworking projects over the years.

One of my most prized possessions is a wooden chest that I built a few years ago.

Black walnut. Dovetail joints. Treasure chest top.

It’s something else, isn’t it?

I’m not ashamed to say that there’s 80 hours of work in that box.

And I enjoyed every minute of it.

Expert Guidance and a Clear Plan Make all the Difference

I was lucky enough to have some great teachers show me how to build it.

They walked me through the whole process from jigs to Danish oil to tack cloth.

I Caught the Woodworking Bug

When I have some free time in the shop, I like to tinker with wood.

I’ve built a few boxes over the years, but I keep running into the same problem:

I don’t know what to build and I don’t have good plans.

So what do you do when you need a new woodworking idea and some clear, detailed plans to build it?

You go do an Internet search. At least that’s what I do.

I’d find cool ideas for coffee tables (like this one):

And I’d tinker away here and there whenever I could find a woodworking project that sparked my interest.

But What I Found Next Made All the Difference…

I felt like I’d hit the motherlode.

  • More plans than I could useĀ  in a lifetime. (Thousands!)
  • Clear, detailed instructions. (Easy to follow!)
  • Simple enough for a novice woodworker like me.

It’s taken my woodworking game to the next level.
