Our History:

Barry Rach, founder and president of, began his career in drafting, design and engineering in 1979 in college. After working in the drafting/design field for a few years, he decided a more "hands on" aproach was needed so he started a welding/fabricating business. From 1982 until 1998 the company designed, fabricated, tested and installed everything from small railings, weldments to large industrial projects. Over the years we had amassed a large inventory of plans ranging from simple to complex.

In 1985 the concept to sell some of the more basic and popular plans was born. Some of these incuded plans for a log splitter, go cart, shop press, trailer, BBQ smoker, bending brake, etc. Our sales at that time came from mail-order and magazine ads. Our customers enjoyed these metalworking plans but they also wanted more woodworking plans. Around 1997 we started designing and building projects for woodworkers which has been a huge success.

In 1999, we moved our operations to new, and bigger facilities that included a 3,200 square foot workshop and a 1,390 square foot office complex. The workshop is were we build and test our projects from concept to printed plan. The office complex is were we design, print, process and ship orders.
