Few of the LJ members actually post plans for their projects, for various reasons. Quite a few of us build from plans we find in magazines or purchase from other sources such as Rockler and feel that it would be a violation of the original publisher’s copyright(s) to post a copy of the plan. Many of us simply don’t use plans at all, building in an ad-hoc manner, designing as we go along.

Those who do post plans for projects, generally use SketchUp to design their projects and post links to the SKP file. You can print SketchUp plans using the free version of the program.

Hope this helps. Good luck in your search. Don’t forget you can always send a personal message (PM) to any LJ who has posted a project you like. You might get lucky and find someone who can provide you with the plan or at least the dimensions of the project that you like.

Good Luck!

I have printed from this website. I simply clicked on the printer icon on my tool bar and it printed. I have done several printings with no problems.

You can print anything from this website.
What project, blog or forum post would you like to print?

I’ve read these replies, but I am unable to see where the “Print” icon is or anything else that allows me to print. I could do a “Control P”, but that prints everything.
Thanks for any assistance.

If you can fill the screen with a plan, just press “print screen” and go to “paint/ edit/ paste” and download the plan. You can then send it to your printer.

Highlight what you want to print, right click hit print. (I’m using win 7)

Also. I find a screenshot utility quite useful. I think for windows there is one called Clip or Clipit. The one I use in Linux is called Shutter. These allow you to select any portion of a screen and print it or create a file.

Have your say...
