I bought the Tudor bench plans from http://www.americanfurnituredsgn.com /
I bought one each from U-Bild and Yankee workshop. Everything else came from a pencil and paper from my own ideas. Made a garden bench from plans in Wood Magazine.
Rather than re-invent the wheel, I'm willing to buy a set of plans if I see something I want. OTOH, if I don't see it, I draw it and build it. You can see some of the items from plans as well as my own ideas on my web page.

Plans? Plans? Don' need no steenkin' plans.
If you don't want to make up your own, google is the place you wanna be. Loads of free plans. Or so I've heard.
You left out all the pertinent details, like what you want to make, and so on. Lacking all the important stuff, I took it upon myself to find a plan for you. Enjoy. http://jas.familyfun.go.com/crafts?page=CraftDisplay&craftid 118

I'm surprised at you, Joat!
After reading hundreds, if not thousands of your posts, and saving a pretty large percentage of them, I'd think you'd have given him the url to a pointy stick or pucky duck or something that would be a challenge.

You're right, I was being very selfish. But, I'm not sharing any pucky duck plans with any newcomer. I'm saving those for the regulars.
I'd have been willing to share point stick plans, but I haven't been able to fine any good ones. I've been looking for a good set of plans myself. But, I want a left pointing pointy stick, and all I've been finding are sticks that point right, up, or down. Can't use a one of them. I've gotten a bit discouraged with it all, and have about given up looking for good pointy stick plans. No, I take that back, I did find one left pointing stick, but it was very crude and amateurish, no use to me at all.

Don't buy plans. Download and save pictures of what I like and then build it to suit my preferences.

Woodcraft, Rockler, Grizzly, local woodworker supply stores, etc.
However, as otheres have suggested, if you see a piece that you like, look it over, take photos and work up your own drawings and working sketches.

Plans have advantages. I want to make a small pair of gates for the stairs on my deck. Some years ago I put them together hastily and they lasted, but it is time for something much better. So far, I've decided to use pressure treated and stain (like the rest of the deck), Spanish cedar, mahogany, or Ipe. They will have either spindles, square pillars or some sort of geometrical pattern. The tops may or may not be square as I'm thinking I can do a nice curve just as easily.
So far, I've put about an hour of thinking into this. If I had plans, I could have just put my brain into "coast" and had them done by now.
