Ted’s Woodworking Review: A controversial product that delivers on value.

Hi, I’m Jim…

I’ve been looking for basic woodworking projects online for a while now and Ted’s Woodworking keeps showing up.

If you have been looking at reviews for Ted’s Woodworking, then you have seen either one of two types of reviews:

  1.  It’s the best thing on the market.
  2.  It’s a scam

It is not the best thing nor is it a scam, it is something in-between…

I bought it and want to tell you what I think about it.

I don’t like how it is organized because it makes what you are looking for difficult to find.


I do like that they offer a 60-day guarantee.

What you get when buying this add-on:

The 700 Boys Projects:

Is a PDF copy of a book that was written in 1916, it is very dated. There are some interesting projects like a secret door lock and how to make a toaster.

This book would be more of a novelty than of any practical use. The plans are not in-depth and the graphics are incomplete.

Build Your Own – Projects for Kids:

The plans and projects in this section are dated from the 1960s and 1970s.

The projects are more mechanical and metal work than woodworking.

The plans range from building a minibike to building a bike trailer.

Tree Houses and Kids Structure Plans:

A total of 14 tree and play houses to build.

An example of a playhouses in this section.

The project has a list of materials and tools needed along with detailed instructions.

A list of 20 projects from building a telescope to a small electric motor. These projects are also dated 60s and 70s.

The idea here is, “Motors convey basic ideas

Pros and Cons:


  • DIY Home Repair collection is comprehensive
  • Some interesting projects in the Science Projects
  • Detailed plans in the Tree Houses and Kids Structures.
  • Bonus books

  • 700 Boys Projects plans are incomplete

The DIY Home Repair and the Tree Houses has some value. The rest of the items are dated and may not be something you would be interested in. If it wasn’t for the DIY section and the bonus books I would not have kept this one.  I do like The Art of Woodworking and Guide to Organic Gardening because I didn’t know anything about hydroponics.

If you are a historian or want to get into building replicas or even repairing antiques, then this one would be a very good buy.

The books are old enough to be on the public domain. The copyright has long passed on these books. You can buy them for between $8.00 and $10.00 each. The entire group together here is a good buy.

Pros and Cons:


  • Books cover just about every area in woodworking
  • Great from a historical point of view
  • Great if you want to repair antiques or build replicas


  • Some copies look like they were copied at a library.
  • Books are very old
  • Some of the copies were not copied very well.


These books are not for everyone even though they cover just about every aspect of woodworking.

If you are concerned about the age of the books, then don’t get this one.

If history about woodworking is your thing then get it, it would be worth it.
