Dunno if this qualifies a project but the only thing I've made from commercial plans is a self centering mortise jig with plans from Wood Magazine. Needed a slight modification as the plans had the base screwed to the moveable legs

Right now I'm in the planning stage of building a swivel top tool stand for my benchtop oscillating spindle sander with the bench grinder, Worksharp and Drill Doctor scheduled for the bottom side. The plans I'm starting with are also from Wood Magazine but the way it's looking, no one would be able to recognize it as such

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

Built a Futon and needed drawing for the routed grooves that allow the futon to fold up and down. Got the plans from Lowe's, delivered to store in about 2 days.

Used transfer paper to draw on wood, routed about 1/16" larger than plan which allowed frame to move a lot easier. Turned out great.

Default Kreg Router Cabinet

I am just finishing a router cabinet from a video featuring the Kreg jig assembly method. The table top is by Woodpeckers and is phenolic, with an aluminum insert plate. The router for the cabinet is a Triton.

I am new to woodworking, so this is one of my first projects. So far, so good.
