About Us

Welcome to buildsomething.com — the online community for do-it-yourself project builders! We’re glad you’re here! 

Whether you’re searching for great step-by-step project plans or you want to find the best how-to information for building DIY projects, you’re in the right place. At BuildSomething, we pledge to simplify the DIY project experience, so that you can start—and complete—every project with confidence. Best of all, all of the plans and how-to information on BuildSomething are absolutely free.

BuildSomething is brought to you by Kreg Tool Company, a company you’ve trusted for more than 25 years to create tools that help you build a sense of accomplishment as you build projects. We bring that same dedication to BuildSomething, with a staff of experts who have decades of how-to project experience. That means you can trust the plans to be accurate, and easy to follow, and the how-to information to be proven and easy to understand. 

BuildSomething is organized so you can find the information you’re looking for easily. The how-to information is grouped by subject, and the plans can be sorted by space and by type. This makes it really easy to find the inspiration you want, plus the how-to help you need to turn that inspiration into reality. 

You’ll see as you search that some of these plans are “Certified,” which means they were designed and tested by the experts at BuildSomething. These plans have been checked and rechecked for accuracy and completeness. Plus, we have a professional Support Team that is here to help you with questions about Certified plans.

The rest of the plans you see here are contributed by BuildSomething members like you who have a passion for projects and for showing others how to build them! That’s right. At BuildSomething you can share plans for the original projects you create. You don’t need to be a design professional to do it, either. If you can put together basic instructions, add a few simple photographs or drawings, and share a list of the materials you used, then you can contribute plans for projects you’ve created to buildsomething.com! Just click on “Add Plan,” and we’ll take you through it step by step.

When you sign up for your free BuildSomething membership, you become part of a community where you can connect with others who share your passion for building your own projects. You’ll have your own profile page where you can keep a list of the BuildSomething projects you want to build, and share photos of them once you do. You can also see what other members are building, follow other members, and have your own followers. And you’ll be able to ask questions, share tips, and offer advice in our forums

With all of these awesome features—and with an always-growing selection of how-to information and step-by-step plans—BuildSomething really is the best place to find the do-it-yourself information you’re looking for.
