And Take “Small Shop Woodworking” To A New Level!
Great news – I’ve designed an entire collection of really helpful jigs and other shop projects, and I made professional plans for each.
Everything has a central focus; To get more from a small, under-tooled shop.
I want to show you exactly what I’ve designed, and what it can do for you, but first…
Quick question: Do You Want To…
Then this will be the most important message you’ll ever read.
Before you read ANY more, please understand this is NOT for woodworkers with access to large work shops.
If you have lots of space and all the power tools the pros use, then what I have to offer you will probably not help.
And it’s NOT for woodworkers with “proper” training. Everything taught and used here is approached with a “simpler is better” mindset.
I’ve found this mindset reduces overwhelm and gets us through our struggles much faster.
So if you’re into woodworking theory and history (and tedious perfectionism), then this is not for you.
It’s NOT for professionals. If you already have the techniques figured out, and a fully functional shop, then you probably don’t need the help I can offer.
And finally, it’s NOT for the “woodworking by hand” people. I love power tools, and I use them – the Right ones, the Important ones.
If you don’t like that, this is definitely not for you.
What you’re getting here is the exact projects, techniques, and plans that I use myself to take on any woodworking project I want.
And while I can’t promise you’ll have similar results, I believe that if you follow and use what I have to teach, you can become a great Small-Shop-Woodworker.
I don’t promise a magic button. And I’m not a Youtube woodworking guru that knows everything.
I’ve grown my skills as a woodworking hobbyist, from my garage, with limited tools.
I want to show you how to do the same. How far you take it is completely up to you.
With that said, let me jump right in and show you…
Wood Shop Essentials is a membership site that is for beginner and intermediate woodworkers.
The singular focus for you inside, will be this:
Getting more from your tools, by utilizing the proper shop jigs and table saw sleds, while transforming your space into a functional and efficient wood shop.
And even more specifically, I’m providing you with:
Highly rated, highly detailed woodworking plans for lots of jigs, sleds, and other shop projects.
AND – you get access to my Training Vault where I’ll teach you how to use these jigs to take on more advanced cuts and joinery techniques.
These training videos are all geared towards simplified, small-shop woodworking, but still result-driven.
All the while, helping you improve your accuracy, your consistency, and your overall capabilities as a woodworker.
I also provide furniture plans, the kind that don’t require all the expensive tools, but instead they’re all focused on and around the jigs and sleds that are included with Wood Shop Essentials.
I also provide project tutorial videos to help get you started, where I walk you through step by step, building projects.
In a nutshell, I provide the projects and the guidance you need, to do what I’ve claimed as my main goal:
To help you get more from a small work space and limited tools.
It’s a mindset, a paradigm shift. It’s going to open your eyes and remove your invisible hurdles.
Most beginners get caught up in watching youtube videos, which is a roadblock in and of itself.
Have you spent hours watching youtube, so called “Learning” from the gurus?
Don’t get me wrong, many of them are impressive.
But how often do you find yourself admiring their techniques, just to realize you don’t even have the tools you need to do things their way…
That’s why I want to help you take on a new mentality with your woodworking.
A new approach entirely – by EMBRACING the fact that you have a small shop, and limited tool access.
All it really means is that you don’t have as much money tied up in your shop.
But you can still get the results you want, you just need to use some different, ‘outside-the-box’ techniques.
Here’s why this is a GOOD thing…
It forces efficiency, creativity, and ingenuity, and nevertheless, you can accomplish the outcomes of the Pros, without all the tools they use.
I continually add more plans, more projects, and more videos to the members area.
So once inside, not only will get IMMEDIATE access to everything I’ve made so far…
But as long as you remain a member, you’ll get all the updates and the new stuff as soon as I add it!
Beginner to Intermediate skill-building furniture plans, highly detailed, easy to follow, and utilizes small-shop techniques.
Complete video walk through for building the Box Joint Jig, the Moxon Vise, and I even through in a tutorial for the Sofa Arm Table furniture project, which used to be a paid course only, now included with Wood Shop Essentials.
Additional build-guide videos will be added to this section of the members area.
This is a growing library of short tutorial videos that you can stream online.
You know how on youtube you gotta watch like a 20 minute video, just to find a simple technique that could have been explained in 3 minutes…?
Yeah, that wastes time, and I don’t like it. So I like to keep my videos on point, and as short as possible.
This is where I’ll teach you the concepts and the techniques when using the WSE jigs and sleds, while mastering ‘Small Shop Woodworking’.
Let me show you some screenshots of what’s inside…
Yes, that’s a tremendous amount of helpful, game-changing content for small-shop woodworkers.

“These plans are great and really easy to follow. I’m very new to woodworking and have just started setting up shop, so having a set of plans to kick-start me in the wonderful world of jigs is a real blessing. And they really are easy to follow: They’re well thought out, clear and comprehensive, leaving absolutely nothing to guesswork…”
~ Peter from the United Kingdom
“The plans are great. Some of the best I have seen for detail and explaining things to this noob…”
~ Brad D. from Lenexa, Kansas
“…My first thought was that the sled plans alone are worth what I paid for access. I’m not much of a woodworker but I think with WSE I can get a lot better.”
~ Jerry S. from New Caney, Texas
I made Wood Shop Essentials with the beginner-intermediate woodworker in mind. But to get the most out of it, you should have at least basic working knowledge of your power tools, making cuts, and shop safety.
Otherwise, I’ve made the plans very easy to follow and understand, so beginners can easily make sense of them.
Plus, these jigs and other tool enhancers are incredibly useful for beginners . . . and you won’t outgrow them anytime soon! In fact, I still use them myself for projects in the intermediate-advanced range.
If you need help getting over common beginner hurdles, the Wood Shop Essentials Video Training Vault has tool-specific videos geared towards new woodworkers. I also have a lot of free content for beginners on my blog, The Power Tools Website.
I custom design and create all the plans myself using professional software . . . so no. While it’s possible you can find similar plans scattered around the web, these particular plans can only be found on Wood Shop Essentials.
You should also consider the potential cost of using free plans. Free plans come with zero support . . . and if they’re poorly designed or poorly explained, you may be left high and dry in the middle of a project. That means wasted time and wasted materials.
But when you join Wood Shop Essentials, you’ll get email support from me personally.
And I stand behind my plans 100%, so I also offer a 60 day, 100% money-back guarantee. That means I have a real incentive to make sure my plans are accurate and helpful and do what I say they’ll do.
That’s something you won’t get with any free plan you find online.
Most of the training and projects inside Wood Shop Essentials focus on just three tools:
With just these three tools, you can accomplish so many awesome things in a woodshop!
You should also have some basic hand tools. For example, you’ll need a way to cut curves. If you don’t have a scroll or band saw, you can use a jigsaw, or even a coping saw. You’ll also need a drill and a pocket hole jig.
In each project I lay out all the tools and bits required to complete the project — that way there are no surprises halfway through.
If you’re a complete beginner and have no tools, you’ll need to invest in the basics. To help you, as a member of Wood Shop Essentials you’ll get access to a bonus ebook, Setting Up Shop. This ebook includes shopping lists for all budgets, plus handy money-saving tips for your tool purchases.
All Wood Shop Essentials plans, as well as the included furniture projects, I make with both imperial and metric measurements included.
Depending on where you are, some items I use may or may not be easy for you to find locally.
I typically use Amazon to find items I can’t find easily in my area.
To make sure you can find what you need, when you join Wood Shop Essentials, you’ll get access to my Project Material Sources page. This page includes Amazon links to the items I vouch for and personally use when building my jigs and sleds.
Yes. I take the security of your credit card and other personal information very seriously.
That’s why I’ve partnered with Stripe and PayPal. They offer extra layers of protection, including an encryption layer on the transaction, to ensure that your payment information is safe.
Your card information will only be seen and handled by these payment processors. I will not be able to access your card information in any way. You honestly have a higher chance of credit card fraud at your local gas stations than you do using the Stripe or PayPal payment processors.
I offer all members a 60-day 100% money-back guarantee.
Try out as many plans, tutorials, and training videos as you want. If they don’t help you make breakthroughs in your woodworking skills, just let me know within 60 days, and I’ll happily refund you.
Canceling after the 60-day period is hassle-free, too — it only takes a few clicks to complete.
Sure. When you join today, you’ll get immediate access to everything inside the members’ area:
