Tim made some small changes to the BBQ Grill Plans; the main ones were adding the side door, thermometer and the chimneys. "This allows it to double as a really good smoker. It makes a mean pork shoulder."

"I had a special adapter that converts the Bobcat quick attach to accept 3 point hitch implements. The plans were very easy to read and the project was rather simple to put together. Materials cost only about $250 as we had the steel laying around the shop."

Your plans and instructions where detailed and made building this bench very easy! As you can see I added a center beam for better support on the bottom shelf. Who says a "workhorse" can't look good!!

Excellent job on the playhouse David - the project AND the landscaping look great! "Although I had finished most of the work in about 4 - 5 weeks of weekends, the devil is in the details! The plan worked out great. I was pleased by the accuracy of the measurements. I enjoyed the process and the kids are enjoying the result!"

"My daugther is very pleased with the cabinet and is using it already to sew clothes for her daughter. These were the only plans we could find that can be used to build a cabinet solid enough to support a vibrating sewing machine. I'm sure she will enjoy the cabinet for many years in the future."

Terry's Toddler Rocking Horse made from Poplar wood and stained to let the woodgrain speak for itself. "I added the stars and round knobs on the end of the handles to help protect eyes. I am sure my granddaughter will have years of fun with her rocking horse."

Bending Brake (18") was modified (not visible in this photo) so that a pair of springs automatically raise the hold-down bar when you loosen the bolts! As Gerald says: "you might want to add this option as it makes it easier to add and remove your work from the brake". Great idea - and we are definately looking into adding this to the plans.

Fred sez: " I'm very pleased with the plans although I have heavily modified them... 24" instead of 18", all machined with lathe/mill (no welding), thicker material and hardened pins. As a home shop tool, it's really neat and I've sure had fun building it - this design will really do the job for me!"
