I would really be curious to see what the plans actually look like.
Step 1 – Cut some plywood to these sizes
Step 2 – Screw said plywood together
Step 3 – Screw to wall
Step 4 – Profit

The thing most beginners struggle with is conceptualization. On a forum of dedicated wood workers these don’t make a lot of sense, but they do serve a purpose.

To all those beginners, look around though. You can find a lot of plans for simple stuff like that for free.

There’s this door that every time the wind blows it swings opens. Does anyone have a source of plans to build something like this?

If I can find the plans I was thinking of building it out of bubinga or perhaps Carpathian elm burl … your thoughts?

Sorry Yeti, but you linked a different animal. Ron’s Door swing stopper is rectangular with a wedge on one half of it. Your link was for the patented Poopiekat wedge, which is slanted from corner to corner. Wipe off your glasses and take another look. ;-)

I watched an Izzy Swan vid and saw him keep his shorter clamps in a drawer. Now, when cleaning up I can just toss them from across the room. Anybody old enough to remember Mary Poppins cleaning up? :-)

The angle is about 52.989 degrees.

The last time I posted something like this, I remember that I lost points for not showing my work:
arctan(3 3/64 / (7 27/64 – 5 1/8)) = 52.989 degrees

Obviously people have a hard time looking at a picture. They must need reassurance on the sizes I guess.
Look at this thread and see how many people wanted plans for it.
Just recently look at how many people Favorited the lathe storage rack. I mean, it’s alright but…
well proof is in the puddin..

There is a commen element to these plans, they are all extremely simple (at least to those on this site) but it may stir someone to consider with a very simple project and get them hooked on woodworking.

I doubt that, perhaps they have an ulterior motive!
By buying one of these plans you are providing them way to inundate you with adds for things you might possibly buy from them!
