Woodworking can be an enjoyable and very rewarding hobby; if you know what you are doing.There are simply hundreds of things that you can build for your home and garden. If you are the creative type and enjoy using your hands in order to get those creative juices flowing then woodworking is probably the best hobby you can pick and what better project to choose only to build a gazebo to adorn your lawn. The trouble is where do you start?
When building a gazebo in your backyard, there are a few things that you should take into account, in order to prevent costly mistakes and to keep the expenditures under control. We have built dozens of gazebos and we have learned throughout the years that good plans and planning don’t have any substitute.

Getting your hands on the right gazebo plans for your needs is paramount. If you want to keep the costs under control and to build the gazebo by yourself, a square construction is the good choice. Otherwise, the best compromise between looks and costs is to choose quality rectangular gazebo plans. An octagonal shape will add style and character to your backyard, but it requires a significant investment and a high amount of work.
Let’s get right down to it:
There are plenty of great woodworking packages online with plans of gazebos, pergolas, sheds, garages and boats and some of them are cheaper than Teds Woodworking, but I seriously doubt that you will find any download package that is as comprehensive as this one with its thousands of detailed designs for all kinds of projects, great bonuses and very good customer support.
If you plan on attacking all 16,000 designs at once you will not get the most out of the product. (FYI: I didn’t count whether there are truly 16,000 woodworking designs in the package but there are definitely thousands upon thousands). Even though there are plenty of types of gazebo plans for both beginners and pros, like all woodworking, you are going to have to follow directions and take your time. The beauty of this e-book is that it flat out encourages woodwork and carpentry. It encourages brain stimulation and improves various woodworking techniques. As a teacher that is good enough for me.
You can easily spend the next few years going through all the plans and woodworking designs which were of high quality with clear instructions and crisp images and text. Some designs were completely original concepts which I had never seen before on garden projects. It really depends on how much time and patience you have to find the right plan for you.
This e-book takes you by the hand and shows you step by step some of the best gazebo plans out there

As mentioned earlier, Teds Woodworking which has a huge folder on Gazebos provides file upon file of designs. There are enough plans for beginners, intermediate, and expert woodworkers to last a life time. If I had to pick the biggest advantage of getting this download, it would be the amount of designs for beginners. There are folders full of simple carpentry plans with excellent direction and diagrams. The amount of blueprints is staggering.
It contains lots of outdoor woodwork projects :pergolas,patio,spa,screened & wooden gazebos,garden canopy,garden arches and much more. I also use these blueprints as handouts for my classes.
For experts the product is designed by a professional so you can expect lots of details for some of the blueprints. Teds Woodworking lists plans, diagrams, and materials needed for most projects. Even the super experienced benefit from this package. Why? All the legwork is done for you, regardless if Ted is a fake or not.

Download times can be long. The size of Teds Woodworking download package is not small by any means so if you have a slow internet connection it may actually take a few hours to download all the blueprints.
In the members area you have the option to upgrade to the DVD edition and skip the long download session.
Teds Woodworking can be a little overwhelming at first. Why? There are so many different designs and projects the members’ area can get a little confusing and jumbled. But once you get started you will get used to the organization and the folders, you will not find it difficult at all to manouever around.
