Do you want to start on a woodworking project, but you are afraid? Maybe you've tried in the past and you wasted wood, energy and time. Well, fear no more. Major woodworking projects should start with a major plan! If you have experience, you know what I mean.

You have to have that stick-to-itiveness. You will probably make mistakes; however, with good instructions from a woodworking blueprint, you will have much less mistakes. Think about your mistakes as a learning experience and not as failure. Take mental and real notes so you can avoid making the same mistakes in the future. Take notes or real mental mistakes and how to avoid them next time. Above all, your “stick-to-itiveness” is what will help you accomplish all your goals.
