  1. I have been looking for plans for a daybed or deep seating bench that I could build
    for our screened in porch. Something deep enough that we could stretch out or curl up with a good book. Do you have anything like that in your collection of plans?

    Thank you.

    • Marge:

      Thanks for asking. I do not at the moment, but I’ll work up a sketch this week and do a plan for it within the next two weeks!

  2. I was trying to find a search bar for a rocking chair (armless) to use for guitar pickin on the porch

    • Armless rocking chair? Hmm…let me chew on a design for a bit. Look for something next week.

  3. Thank you very much and good chewing but dont choke

  4. Are the plans for these sketches available somewhere. I guess I’m missing something.

    • Not all of the sketches become plans. I create 250+ sketches a year (roughly 5 per week), but only one plan per week, in addition to plans I create for other folks (such as DIY Network). Look at the Plans section for a list. You can also go to for a bigger list of plans that includes projects for DIY, Lowe’s, and others.

  5. I have been trying to unsubscribe sketch of the day, what is up with not being able to do that.

    • See if you can find the original e-mail that you got when you signed up to receive e-mails – it may have instructions in it.

  6. You probably need to go to Word Press to unsubscribe.There is a link on the right near the top where you can manage your subscriptions. Just go to that, and unclick Chief’s Shop. Hope that helps.

  7. I have downloaded dozens of plans but when there saved i can’t open to print to make them do you know why need help thanks jim

    • The plans are pdf files, which you should be able to open in Acrobat Reader. Make sure you have that – it’s a free program. If you try downloading a Sketch of the Day, you’re only going to get an image because those have not been turned into plans. E-mail me at and I can try to send you the specific plan you want.



  8. Do you have step by step plans for your checker board with a drawer and other checker boards want to make for my son thanks

    • No plan for that one yet, but I’m going to e-mail one I did for Lowe’s a few years ago. It’s no longer up on their web site.

  9. What is the best way to cut off the excess from pocket hole plugs

  10. Hi
    I am looking for plans to a casket, simple but strong.

    • Just one for Halloween decorations.

  11. No, I am kind of planning ahead.

  12. Are the plans for the outdoor evening chair (March 31, 2014 with YouTube video) part of the purchase plans? Otherwise I can find the plans. This is not the first time this has occurred so – help!
