Free Project Plans

Below are over 60 free project plans for woodturning.  There are lots of things you can make on a lathe, but deciding which one to tackle can be a problem!  Below are a selection of project plans which will hopefully give you some inspiration and get you onto your lathe and being creative ;-).  While these plans are provided free of charge, we would appreciate a photo of anything you make from them – just send it to and include a few details about the wood and finishes used etc.  Also if you any problems with a plan then let us know and we’ll look into improving it.

Finally, if you’re not a member of the GAW then you’re still welcome to use these free project plans for woodturning, but please consider making a small donation to charity – either the Club’s charity of the year (Blood Cancer UK) or another of your choice.

All plans are in PDF or Word format.
