I've been out of the hobby for a few years now... and I'm not afraid to
admit that I may need to "cheat" for awhile and use another guy's plans, at
least for ideas.
ebay has more than one "30,000 woodworking plans" CD for sale for next to
So here are the questions:
1) Are they legal? (Or are they scanned copies of work that deserves to be
paid for? Or maybe improper copies of liscenced CDs?)
2) If legal, is there a particular plan set that is better than the others?
And an extra credit question worth ten points:
All I ever worked with was cherry or cherry-surfaced plywood. Maybe I'm
forgetting what this stuff used to cost, but it sure is expensive today!
(At least where I've found it so far). I wouldn't want to open a "turf
war" can of worms, but what other species work similarly without quite the
expense (I'm certain my early efforts will not merit the good stuff)?
Thanks in advance!
