Outdoor Woodworking Plans

Outdoor woodworking projects run the entire spectrum from simple and inexpensive to intricate and expensive. There are great plans for simple, beginner items such as a bicycle rack or ladybug house, as well as plans for a beautiful cupola to grace the top of your home or garage.

Free outdoor woodworking plans use simple tools and stock lumber to create a myriad of useful and eye catching accessories and storage items that every family and yard can use.




Always use galvanized or stainless steel fasteners to avoid rust and corrosion. Choose exterior treated lumber, cedar or redwood for lasting durability when constructing your outdoor items. Use water seal and water based stain to protect and finish your projects.

Storage chests, sundials, boot drying rack or weathervanes are all free outdoor woodworking plans you and your family can build together for a do-it-yourself project that everyone will enjoy.
