With each project we release, that includes the Line & Berry Shelf Clock released last Friday (read more about the clock here), 360 WoodWorking includes what we consider to be a full set of working plans. There’s a front and side view, patterns of most moldings and an exploded view. And we have them available for our members to print at 8-1/2″ x 11″ to take into the shop as they work.
Not only can you print the plans, but the views also open up online to a larger image so you can get in close to see any details. (You need to click the plans to get them to enlarge.)
My questions is, what plans do you find most useful? Is it the flat line drawings? Do you think that an exploded view is better because it shows you how the projects come together?
I’m sure that most of you will say that you like and use them both. But if you had only one from which to choose, which would it be?
