TedsWoodworking review - This program contains detailed and simple "hold-you-by-the hand" instructions that are so easy to understand and implement. It doesn’t matter what your current skill level is. 


The project plans are very detailed and contains step-by-step instructions with really practical videos, detailed diagrams, cutting & materials list that your project practically builds itself. 


TedsWoodworking is really affordable but not cheap. So if you're look for a really cheap woodworking program, you may have to look elsewhere.

Hey, welcome to my comprehensive Tedswoodworking review!
And thanks so much for dropping by...

So let me begin by asking…

  • Have you ever tried to build something unique with an out-of-box touch but can't find it "retail"?
  • Have you struggled to find very detailed plans to build your dream project and kept bumping into plans that come with instructions that leave out vital information?
  • Have you ever been presented with a challenging project, for example, a friend, or sibling, or customer comes and wants something custom-made for them?

Or worse yet...

  • Have you come across plans where the creator already assumes you're a master craftsman with access to expensive tools and a large workshop?

If you answer in the affirmative, then WELCOME ABOARD to TedsWoodworking  - "The Earth's Largest Database of Woodworking Projects"!

You see, I was born into a DIY home.

My dad LOVES doing stuff with his hand and my mom believes in alternative medicine more than anything else.

So I grew up with the "you-can-do-it-with-your-hands" mentality.

 I started building out my own little projects as a kid and showing it off to my parents, siblings and friends at school.

In fact, when I was about 10 years old, I built a good-looking wooden chair that is still in use today in my grandfather's house.

So when I first heard of TedsWoodworking and the enormous loads of project it contained together with the rave of 5-start reviews accompanying it, I decided to reach out to Ted and asked for a FULL copy of his program to test out and review.

The following day, I received this email from his team;

email reply

So I spent almost a day bruising through the entire program and I was simply BLOWN AWAY by the detailed step-by-step, hands-on instructions of each project.

As you already know, I DON'T review programs on this website that I haven't personally used, read or implemented, so when I told you I was blown away, I meant it!

So today, I'm going to review extensively about this wonderful program and help you make a good buying decision.

So Who is Ted and What on Earth is TedsWoodworking?

Ted Mcgrath is a certified master woodworker, trainer and a staunch member of Architectural Woodwork Institute (AWI).

He’s been in the woodworking arena for the past 25 years regularly publishing books, technical guides, and articles on woodworking.

He also runs a woodworking technical class.

And what’s TedsWoodworking?

Simply put, it’s a powerful woodworking program that Ted created to shell out over 16000 woodworking projects with:

  • STEP-BY-STEP instructions
  • Videos
  • Photos
  • Extremely detailed diagrams
  • High-quality blueprints and
  • Schematics…

…to make every project laughably easy.

So let's begin by filtering out those whom this program is not for.

This program is not for you if…

  • Looking for a cheap or free woodworking program (Freebiers)…
  • Not ready to put in the time and effort into making your dream projects come true…
  • Seeking a quick and short-cut approach…
  • Looking for a mysterious automated program to do all the woodworking stuff for you while you sit back and put your both hands at the back of your head, waiting for your projects to be completed in seconds…
  • Looking for a one-size-fits-all approach…
  • A sneaky cat-fish who only wants to explore the content of the course, steal all them projects and then ask for a refund.

So if you’re not one of those, then continue reading as we review the beautiful content of this lovely program…

What I Dislike About TedWoodworking Plans

Well, there’s always going to be a dislike or two no matter how awesome and brilliant a program is.

For me, there are three drawbacks I actually wish could be improved on…

1) Price

For many woodworkers, I believe the price of this program is extremely fair and affordable but if you’re on a very tight budget...

....well you may have to save up a little more or borrow from your kids (there’s absolutely nothing wrong in borrowing for the right course).

But I’m very certain, you’ll get the BANG for your buck!

We’re talking about 16000+ unique projects with step-by-step instructions. 

Personally, I think the price is waaaaaaay low compared to the value you’d be getting out of it.

But I also would like for Ted to create a section where one can pay in installments rather than the full price for those on a very tight budget.

My two cents though…

2) Little Disorganization…

Another drawback I found was that the projects were a little disorganized.

The search function didn’t work the way I expected which is understandable as it is a pain in the ass to place all these plans into their proper categories and make it easily accessible to all and sundry…

Which is why there is an accompanying PDF file that list all the titles and corresponding page numbers.

That way, you can simply hit the CTRL+F keys and type in the page number and you’ll be taking directly to the project

3) Heavy files…

Well, I expected the files to be heavy right from the jump but little did I know I was gonna have to wait a long ass time to get them all downloaded…

…although there’s an option in the members area to download the DVDs instead of individual files.

It’s gonna cost you a little more but it’s well worth it.

What I Like About TedsWoodworking

1) 16K 'Done-for-You' Plans…

Wood Projects

This is huge!

At first, I thought it was some kind of a joke – 16000+ projects for the price of 10?

I couldn’t wait to get the files downloaded and when the download was complete, I immediately opened up the “Woodworking-Plans-16000-pages.pdf” file and made sure the projects were actually up to 16000 or more.


In fact, the step-by-step instructions were so detailed that my little brother could follow and still get his dream project done without looking for assistance.

 When you log on to the private members area, you’d be presented with a screen like this;

The “Main Woodworking Plans Part 1 and 2” contains over 16000 plans plus detailed guidelines, tips and tricks on how to successfully get them done like an expert.

Detailed instructions and schematics for projects such as;

  • Heart-Shaped Puzzle Box
  • Traditional Springerle Board
  • Nautical Clock and Weather Station
  • Raised Letter Address Plaque
  • Counter Balance Horse Toy
  • Marquetry Mirror
  • Motion and Balance Toy
  • Checker Box (Page 216)
  • Indoor-Outdoor Slide
  • Ladder Box
  • Cart and Bookcase
  • Rocking Boat

  • Foldaway Bed/Storage Unit
  • Home Office

  • Tea Cabinet
  • Display Cabinet
  • Dovetail Mirror
  • Book Shelf
  • Peg Shelf
  • And many...MANY more.

In fact, I can’t possibly list out even 30% of the plans and what you’ll learn, otherwise you’d be reading this review for a full week.

The program contains plans for all the categories you could possible think of such as;

  • Cabinet Plans
  • Children Rooms
  • Farmshop Plans
  • Artwork Display
  • Cabin Plans
  • Carport Plans
  • Cart Plans
  • Cellar Projects
  • Utility Buildings
  • Wind Generator
  • Outdoor Sheds
  • Rabbit Houses
  • Gazebos
  • Humidor Plans (my favorite)
  • Media Center
  • Pergolas
  • Dog Houses
  • Computer Desk
  • & Many More!

And I’d highly recommend you check out the “Guide, Tips and Resources” section because it contains pure woodworking gems you wish you should have known.

The beautiful thing about all this is that Ted made the instructions, diagrams, and schematics drop dead simple.

Each plan comes with a hold-you-by-your-hand detailed instructions, and wealth of resources.

You get everything you need to produce stunning results for yourself, grand kids, or customers!

And it doesn’t’ even matter what your budget is because he provides proven strategies for completing your costs for a fraction of what most retailers charge.

2) Step-by -Step Detailed Instructions

I’ve talked about this before but I’m going to dive in a little deeper.

You don’t know what is called detailed instructions until you get your hands on one of these PDFs.

The instructions are super-detailed - so simple to understand and follow.

Let me just go ahead and show you a few pictures so you’ll understand what I’m talking about:

Woodwork plans

This is how it is broken down into;

1) Step-By-Step Instructions;

Every project has a very detailed step-by-step instructions that makes building any project super easy, super-fast and super fun.

It's like a professional holding your hand and guiding you in every step of the way.

2) Cutting & Material List

You not only get a detailed instruction of every project, but you get exact cutting and material list so you’ll be able to get the exact amounts of materials you need.

Can you imagine the kind of money this will save you?

Instead of wasting your hand-earned cash on the wrong wood and materials, you'll spend more time doing what you love to do best.

3) Very Detailed Schematics

Personally, this is just like handing me a million dollar jackpot. The schematics included in each plan, were so sharp and colorful.

The level of details makes the most difficult and challenging project a child's play - the project literally builds itself.

4) Advanced Look

The beauty about these plans is I got to see EXACTLY how everything should look even before I started building them.

It contains INTRICATE details of every angle, corner and joint.

I'm certain you're not going to need to scratch your head over any detail if you follow the instructions religiously.

5) Made for Both Beginners and Professionals

Regardless of your skill level and competence, Ted has got you covered.

There are literally thousands of projects that will suit your level.

 The projects on the first half of the main PDFs (Part 1 especially) can be done easily by an amateur like me or a complete beginner because the instructions there are crazy-simple to follow.

3) Very Practical Video Guides


The members area gives you access to a plethora of premium woodworking videos that walks you through the exact steps to getting your basic to advanced woodworking projects done.

The videos are insanely practical and contains a LOT of pro-tips on how to save time and make the most use of your materials. 

There are videos in almost every categories such as;

  • Arts and Crafts
  • Decks
  • Doghouses
  • Gazebos
  • Jigs
  • Tables & Drawers
  • Pergolas
  • Sheds

I’ve been binge-watching the videos ever since.

The following are some of the videos I find EXTREMELY interesting and I'd highly recommend you watch them the minute you log on to the members area;

  • DIY Built-In Cabinets with Beaded Face Frames
  • How To Build TV Wall Cabinets
  • DIY Custom Built Cabinets
  • Homemade clothes folding machine
  • How To Build A Simple Cheap Work Bench
  • How To Build A Professional Style Workbench
  • Build a Cheap Woodworking Workbench

For example, in the video about built-in cabinets with beaded face frames, I learned a trick that 90% of woodworkers don’t know about maximizing materials with precise cuttings saving me a lot of money in the process.

4) Free Lifetime Member Access

monthly updates

This is huge!

Not only will you get access to the 16000+ plans, you’ll also receive FREE lifetime access to new plans that's released every month from Ted's workshop – No recurring fees whatsoever.

5) Rave of Awesome 5-Star Reviews

TedsWoodworking has caused quite a stir in the woodworking industry. 

There are lots of great 5-star reviews all over the internet.

I’m going to list just 2 out of the thousands out there.

The first is from John from the UK

I can’t thank you enough for the plans. I can build things now that I never thought possible for me to do and make them look good.

If I had to boil it down to one single moment, I think the catalyst that starts in my woodworking journey would be a time when I purchased Ted’s collection of plans.

All I can say is, if you ever wanted to get into woodworking and didn’t know where to start, this is the package to get.

You’ll find plans for almost any project you can think of which makes it VERY easy to get started.

And the second is from Gerry from Nebraska…

I’d like to give a BIG shout-out to Ted. I recently came across Ted’s woodworking online course and I’m so glad that I did.

The number of plans included in the program simply blew my mind!

The content they offered with the course provided me SO many ideas for creative projects as well as some awesome furniture ideas and plans that my wife now wants in our home.

If you’re considering buying the TedsWoodworking course, the return on your investment would be lifelong.

Being one that loves woodworking, I’d say they offer the most detailed collection of plans I’d ever seen.

I’d also rank it as one of the best values of any woodworking course I’d ever taken.

Thanks for creating Ted.

You did well!
