Woodself

Help Woodself to grow and to remain free!

 

www.woodself.com is a simple idea that has been running through the web for several months:  offer do-it-yourselfers a full service of free customized woodworking plans.

 

   

 

 

Customized furniture plans

 

 

Concept is playful: in just a few clicks, standard furniture can be customized by choosing for instance the width, the height or the shelves layout. Photographic rendering (virtual but realistic) gets displayed immediately, together with arrows depicting the main dimensions.

Once happy with their design, web users can submit their configuration and the detailed woodworking plans get instantly generated: exploded view, side or front views, part details, list of all parts identified with a label, holes location. All images are available for download.

At that stage, woodworkers have everything in hands to begin with their furniture project.

 

 

More furniture

 

 

Everything starts with a standard piece of furniture, ready to get customized. Woodself currently proposes twelve furniture: room divider bookshelf, wood shelter, coffee table, toy box, shoe rack, and more. All of them are designed to be easily made by yourself.

Now, Woodself has to expand its furniture catalog so that visitors can find the design that suits their need. So many ideas waiting for implementation!

 

 

More services

 

 

Novice handyman should feel confident before starting a woodworking project. Therefore a visualization tool has been recently integrated: an interactive 3D window that allows zoom and rotation around a cabinet with the mouse, in a semi-transparent environment. Very convenient to detect the screws or the dowels and be well prepared for the project.

 

Woodself_3d

 

3D tools exploitation is just at the beginning of its potential. Woodself wishes to go further, much further! Many services, both pedagogical and creative, are to be developed. A single aim: to make the woodworker’s task easier.
