See More Below.

“Hi Adam, I bought the package this morning and had a quick look at the table saw sled plans etc. Well to say I’m blown away is an understatement. Well done this stuff is brilliant.”

~Derek J. from Caledon

“I am delighted with what I see on essentials project plans. So far I have made the crosscut sled which worked out really well, the plans were so easy to follow. I am now working on a modified workbench…”

~John W. from Birmingham, England

I've Got 3 Questions For You

1 – Would you like to drastically improve your abilites as a woodworker?

2 – Do you have a desire to build furniture and small crafts?

3 – Would you benefit from improved accuracy and better techniques in the wood shop?

If YES – then I’ve got the perfect solution!

You see, I started woodworking years ago in my garage, and I had a few key struggles, maybe you can relate…

  • My accuracy and precisions were all over the map, sometimes non-existent.
  • I couldn't figure out how to make repeatable cuts so project pieces would actually line up right.
  • 90 degrees was an elusive concept... I was just never getting perfect cross cuts, and my projects suffered for it.
  • Constantly feeling like I needed another tool to get any better, since all those woodworkers on youtube seemed to have everything they ever need already.

Now let’s fast forward a few years. I’ve figured things out since then, and a huge part of it was utilizing shop-made jigs and sleds.

I designed my own projects, perfected them, and made professional quality plans for each.

These projects have propelled my woodworking by leaps and bounds, and that collection of plans is what this page is about…

…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

“Adam, 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 United Kingdom

My goal is to help you take your woodworking to next level and beyond.

By providing you with high quality plans, for the exact same woodworking-enhancers that I’ve built myself and use in my shop, I believe you too can start building fun and rewarding projects like these:

Finally, take your woodworking to a level where you have the skills, the confidence, and the capabilities to tackle any kind of furniture project you can dream up!

Who Am I?

Hey guys. I’m Adam, and I’m a Small-Shop Woodworker.

Just a little about myself, I’m a lot of things… A husband, a father, a homeowner, I have a full time job, and I’m a self-taught woodworker.

As you can imagine, I don’t have much spare time, and my guess is that you don’t either.

When I got into woodworking, it was out of necessity – we needed a new platform bed. I got to work, and I immediately fell in love with building things from wood.

I spent years learning, trying new things, getting new tools, and struggling the entire time!

You ever struggled with woodworking before? Yeah, it happened to me too…

Youtube and Google had me convinced that woodworking required either years of experience mastering all hand tools, or a large shop full of expensive tools.

But even besides that, apparently your cuts have to be consistent, accurate, and dang-near perfect if you want to end up with a level, square, gap-free fit in the end.

Would you agree, and have you also found this out the hard way?

In fact, the biggest revelation I made early on is just how EASY it really is, to completely mess up an entire project because of a few inaccuracies early on. And the worst part is that you don’t usually find out until much later in the build process!

This is actually why I avoided advanced joinery techniques, and furniture projects in general, for so long. I just knew I was simply not ready to take on something that required so much accuracy, which I couldn’t seem to figure out.

My first attempt at it (the platform bed I mentioned above) was the most unlevel and unsquare piece of furniture I’d ever seen.

I figured accuracy was something I would just acquire after a few years more of working hard at it.

But I’m not patient enough for that… I needed to find a better, faster way to up my game.

So in my searches, eventually I came across a few shop jigs and table saw sled ideas. 

Apparently, these are like “Tool-Enhancers” that make accuracy (amung other things) much simpler… Bingo!

The ones I found seemed alright, but they weren’t specifically designed for a small shop or for increasing accuracy in the ways I needed.

But, they had potential…

So I started coming up with my own designs, and I tested many different sleds and various jigs. I made a lot of sleds, and scrapped most of them, as they weren’t quite right.

Eventually, I made what I consider the perfect set of table saw sleds, and other jigs that altogether, allowed me to truly start producing accurate cuts consistently, with the limited tools and space I had.

(FYI, I started woodworking in a small 1-car garage and that’s where I started to really hone my skills)

Plus, I was finally able to take on advanced joinery like mortise and tenons, dovetails, and more. Because it was being done systematically using a jig, it didn’t require years of practice mastering the techniques. This opened the door to all kinds of furniture projects!

Finally, I was able to confidently take on building the furniture we needed in our home, as well as furniture for others. I’ve got a list of requests longer than I’ll ever be able to get through, and it feels great!

“I love the wood plans. Very easy to follow, every thing is in such detail. I am glad to be a member…”

~ Ken F. from Ocean Springs, Mississippi

“Adam – Thanks so much for the plans. All of the plans are so detailed from the cut list, many different views and diagrams, and step by step instructions… Your plans are top notch and for very useful jigs!”

~ Cory from Louisiana

“…The plans are really detailed and very clear and they show everything that you need to do in easy to understand steps.

There is a board cutting plan to start the process off and several elevated views so you can see exactly what you need to do from all angles and around 20 pages that covers the whole job [table saw sled] from start to finish.

Adam emailed me a few days after downloading the plans to see if I had any questions and I thought this was excellent aftercare service. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this company and no doubt will be back for more plans once the sled is finished.

Rated ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐”

~ Glyn from Ipswich, England

The simple fact is this...

Regardless of your background, your lack of space, your lack of tools, and whatever else seems to be limiting you…

YOU, Absolutely have the ability to take on really cool and rewarding woodworking projects. 

By building & using the right “TOOL-ENHANCERS”, you can start crafting with accuracy, repeatability, and precision, while saving yourself time, space, and frustration!

This is something I’m passionate about because I learned after years of frustration, that this awesome hobby can be So Much Easier! 

Apparently, all I needed was the right shop and tool enhancements (in the form of various shop projects, jigs, and sleds), and my limitations seemed to vanish!

So I want to help you get to that point, just like I did. And the best way I know to do that is to provide you with the exact plans and projects that brought me to this level.

Not only that, but I have a growing collection of training videos and project tutorials that go hand-in-hand with these shop jigs and other essential woodworking techniques.

And I want to make joining an easy decision for you, so I’m offering a no-risk guarantee right now…

60 Day No-Questions Money Back Guarantee

Wood Shop Essentials is the real deal. You Can and Will get more done with these projects and jigs.

In fact, I’m so confident that you’ll be able to use these projects to advance your woodworking and get more done, quicker, more professionally, and lead a more satisfying hobby, that I’ll give you your money back if within 60 days you’re not completely satisfied.

Frequently Asked Questions

What exactly is included?

The plans, guides, and bonuses are pdf files, viewable on your computer, tablet, and phone. They can also be saved to your computer and printed.

Project Tutorials include detailed HD videos with full commentary. These videos are streamed online so an internet connection is required.

The Training Vault includes shorter videos, each focused on specific cuts or techniques common in woodworking. These are also streamed online.

Upon purchase, you’ll get immediate membership access. From the member’s area, you can access the videos, and all the pdf downloads for the plans and bonuses shown on this page.

Also within the members area, you’ll have access to my Full Woodworkers Resources page, and my Materials Resources page for jig hardware.

The library of plans, training videos, and project tutorials will continue to grow and expand. You’ll have access to it all, for as long as you’re a member.

Is it for beginners?

The included projects are beginner friendly, to an extent. You should have a basic working knowledge of your power tools, and some experience making cuts, understanding safety, having a tuned and accurate table saw, etc.

I do have beginner-focused training videos that are tool-specific in the Training Vault. That, plus the free content on my blog, The Power Tool Website, will help you get through many of the beginner hurdles.

I’ve made the plans very easy to follow and understand, so beginners can easily make sense of them.

Plus, the results you’ll get from these jigs are incredibly useful for beginners.

While I don’t consider myself an advanced woodworking artisan, I do work in the intermediate/advanced range.. And while these jigs are usable by beginners, I personally still use them on my projects on a regular basis. The point is, you won’t be out-growing these jigs any time soon!

What tools should I have to get the most from Wood Shop Essentials?

Much of beginner woodworking, and the training and projects inside WSE, are focused on the Table Saw, Router, and Drill Press. With these 3 tools, you can accomplish so many awesome things in a wood shop.

In addition to these, you will also want some basic woodworking hand tools. For example, you’ll need a way to cut curves. If you don’t have a scroll or band saw, it can be done with a jig saw, or even a coping saw. You’ll also need a drill and a pocket hole jig.

If you’re a complete beginner and have no tools, you will need to be ready to invest in the basics. In each project I lay out all the tools and bits required to complete the project, that way there are no surprises half way through.

Plus, as a bonus you’ll be getting access to my ebook “Setting Up Shop”, which is explained above, and has shopping lists and tips on saving money on tool purchases you’ll want to refer to.

Is there a guarantee?

Yes there is. It’s detailed above on this page. I offer a 60 day money back guarantee, no questions asked. If you feel I did not provide the value you expected, you can email me and ask for a refund.

Can I find these project plans free online somewhere else?

The plans I offer specifically are all custom designed and created by me, so no. But there are possibly similar projects out there.

The problem is that anyone can put out free plans, and they will come with zero support, and if they end up being poorly designed or explained, it may leave you high and dry in the middle of a project, having wasted time and money.

I stand behind my plans, and I offer email support for all my customers, as well as a 60 day money back guarantee. That means I have a real incentive to make sure my plans work, are everything I say they are, and to keep my customers happy.

That’s the difference in paying for premium plans like mine, vs finding freebies online.

Are there any specialty items that are hard to find, needed to build these jigs?

Some items I use may or may not be easy to find locally, depending on where you are. I do some of my shopping for these kinds of things on Amazon. You’ll get access to my Materials Resources page, giving you Amazon links to the items I personally use (and vouch for) when building my jigs and sleds.

Is my credit card secure?

Credit card security is extremely important to me. 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 is only seen and handled by these payment processors, and not by me directly, in any way. Honestly, you have a higher chance of credit card fraud at your local gas stations than you do using the Stripe or PayPal payment processors.

What if I’m not ready to begin yet?

With access to WSE, you get a lot of material from day one, none of which will expire for as long as you’re a member.

That means you can access your downloads from there anytime, whether it be today, or 6 months from now.

The benefit of buying now, even if you don’t plan on starting until later, is that you’ll lock in the current price. Plus you’ll get all new plans and content I add to Wood Shop Essentials, for as long as you remain a member.

How does the membership to Wood Shop Essentials Club work?

By joining the club, you’ll be able to log into the member’s area and access everything included.

You’ll be automatically renewed so you can remain a member for as long as you wish. 

Cancelling is simple, see below.

How do I cancel the membership access?

This is very simple. When logged into the membership area, you can go to “My Details” where you’ll see your account info. Here you’ll find your active subscription details, and beside that there is a ‘Cancel’ link you’ll need to click on.

You’ll even be able to keep the plans you’ve already downloaded.

How fast can I get started?

Well, first scroll down just below and click the buy button or the link underneath it. Handle the transaction and you’ll immediately have access to download all the plans. From there, it’s a matter of deciding where you want to begin, and then getting your material to get started.

“I have looked at part of it and am amazed at the volume of information you have in “Wood Shop Essentials” I have not gotten thru all of it but what I have is very impressive. I will be referring to them for assistance in the future.”
