My Review Of “My Shed Plans”
Over the years we have looked at and reviewed many shed plans available online. When we came across Ryan Henderson’s ‘My Shed Plans’ we were skeptical about the quality of the plans. However, some research soon convinced us that Ryan Henderson was a woodworking authority. This is why we felt compelled to review the product.
What is My Shed Plans?
‘My Shed Plans’ is a collection of around 12000 plans which are aimed at both amateur and professional woodworkers alike. Ryan Henderson has over 20 years of experience as a woodworker and he claims that his shed plans will help you easily build your wooden shed. Regardless, if you have failed to build a shed in the past or if this is your first attempt the plans are easy to follow.
How We Tested My Shed Plans?
We wanted to make sure that ‘My Shed Plans’ was easy to follow for newbie builders. We also wanted to see if the plans really ended up helping people build something useful. In order to test two of these concerns we hired a group of people who had never worked with wood before. We also got a team of experienced builders to look at the plans and tell us if they were foolproof.
Newbie Builder Tests
A group of four newbie builders were handed over the shed building plans at random. They were given all the tools and materials listed. Three out of four new builders had no problem understanding the plans and building the garden shed. There were a few hiccups along the way such as not being able to distinguish between certain tools. But they were generally able to figure things out for themselves and build the shed.
One of our builders actually got handed a really advanced wood shed building plan. While half way through the project his leveling was slightly off. With some help from our experienced builder he was able to complete an otherwise complex shed building plan.
The finished wooden sheds built by these newbie builders were amazing. The structure, design and durability of these sheds when checked by our experts were remarkable. This means that someone who has almost never worked with wood can easily construct many of the projects outlined in the plans.
Experienced Builders’ Opinion
Our experienced builders looked at each of the plans closely and also constructed a few models. The conclusion by the majority of them was that the plans were indeed excellent. The finished product would be very good regardless of who built these sheds. However, it is important to stress that using the best quality material will yield the best results. Factors like durability and the overall look of the sheds depend on the materials used.
Ryan Henderson’s ‘My Shed Plans’ is an excellent package for anyone who wants to build a wooden shed. It is also great for people who want to learn how to build with wood. Many of the techniques can be used to build other items like furniture. The plans work and so they are a must buy for both newbie and veteran builders.
Ryan Henderson – My Shed Plans Author
If though you would want to learn a little about Ryan Henderson before investing in his eBook.
Ryan is the real thing and knows about shed plan and woodworking projects.
The first thing about him. He has been invloved with building wooden garden and storage sheds and other woodworking projects for a little more than 20 years. He is also an active member of the Architectural Woodwork Institute (AWI).
I was impressed to learn that he is a member of the AWI since the AWI is a professional trade association with thousands interested in woodworking and it has been around since 1953.

Eighteen years ago when he started his first garden shed project he thought he knew everything about woodworking.
His first one took about six months because he used the wrong measurements and used the wrong material. He found him worn out and embarrassed about what he did.
He decided that there must be a better way to build a wooden shed.
So for the next 5 years he bought and read many books on woodworking and shed plans. Most of his reading led him to ask even more questions and found few answers.
He looks at shed plans and found them with parts missing and wrong diagrams. He could not find what he was looking for and no detail step by step plans.
So he decided to write his own ebook which led him to creating the program call “My Shed Plans Elite” the ultimate guide for shed plans and woodworking.
But these problems were a blessing. They actually prompted him to perform the one thing which he could actually do and that was create his own!
