As our videos become more popular, we're getting requests for woodworking plans. Over the past few weeks we've had three requests for the Classic Coastal Fireplace Mantel plans. It took about 20 hours to document, photograph, and dimension the diagrams, but they're now ready for purchase.
We hold a high bar for the quality of our plans because we want you to be successful with them. The fireplace mantel plans include 9 photos, 3 drawings, a materials list, a cut list, and instructions. There are several links included as well so you can see some of the details of what makes a quality fireplace mantel... we don't subscribe to the "quick and dirty" or "do your best and caulk the rest" view of building projects.

The organizing shelf plans show you how to make a shelf for recycling bins and storage bins. This is very useful in a garage to get these bins off the floor and maximize the storage space on the walls. This project uses lap joints, so it could be a way to expand your experience with another type of joinery.
If you're interested in spraying finishes and paints, a spray booth is a good idea to contain the mess from overspray. The challenge is, who has room for a spray booth? We designed a collapsable spray booth that uses a drop cloth over a frame. It incorporates an area for filters and a fan to pull the overspray away from the workpiece. The plans for this spray booth are available to you can build one for your workshop!
