The pirate ship playhouse plans pdf package featured in this video is genuinely awesome. I believe the most similar type of package to this I found online is Simple Pirate Ship Playhouse Plans by Roy Hill which isn’t all that great to be honest.
It’s not easy to find comprehensive plans for building a wooden pirate ship style playhouse and Steve Chancey (creator of the plans) nailed this helpful resource on his first attempt! He told me via email that this is his first woodworking plans product.
The full package provides plenty of helpful resources that you will be putting together a nice looking pirate ship playhouse in no time. But you will keep working at it because you know you can keep doing better and adding more features to the playhouse such as a climbing wall and maybe even a slide.
This is the perfect pirate ship playhouse plans pdf set to get you acquainted with the art of constructing wooden ship-shaped playhouses. Many playhouse-building guides can just overwhelm and scare off many dads and moms with how complex they are, but Steve’s offering hit the perfect balance of simple to follow yet highly detailed plans.
Do check out these wonderful plans and use them as your reference guide for building your kid’s first pirate ship playhouse. A full step-by-step video library is available in the full plans package and I highly recommend you check that out.
In addition, support via email or phone is also available so it’s not like once you’ve downloaded the pirate ship playhouse plans pdf pack, you’re left totally on your own to figure things out. Heavens no! If you encounter any problems during the construction process, you can immediately seek help from the Steve.
This type of support is obviously great and kudos to Steve for offering it. Hopefully more and more woodworking product creators would offer such service. Visit the link below for details on the package.
Basic Safety Guide When Building a Wooden Playhouse
Safety is one of those things that we sometimes don’t think about when we go about building a wooden playhouse or just doing general work around the house, but it should be top priority with whatever project you are working on.
When we talk about woodworking safety, the obvious things that come to mind are:
• Eye protection
• Ear protection
• Dust mask if working with power tools
• Read and understand your tool manuals (hand and power)
These are woodworking safety 101 and should be followed at all times. Let’s look at some other safety guidelines that often get overlooked, but are just as important as the safety 101 rules above.
When I talk about workbench clutter, I am talking about stuff that will pile up on your workbench as you are progressing through your project. This could be anything from cutoffs to various little tools like chisels, hand planes, sandpaper, rubber mallet, etc…
I know when I get going on a project, tools start piling up and can make your work space get smaller and smaller. When this happens, it can be a safety concern because you could be running out of room on your workbench and this is when accidents could happen. The smaller your space gets, the more chance of an accident happening.
If you ever had a tool fall on your foot like I have, you understand what I am talking about. I understand that a lot of little tools come out to play when building projects, but they should be kept off to the side or even better on a different bench.
I use an old kitchen island cart with wheels to keep my hand tools on and whatever else I have out for my project. The bottom line is that you keep your work space as clutter-free as you can to minimize the chance of an accident. No point getting the best pirate ship playhouse plans pdf pack if you can’t keep your work space free of clutter, and then end up in a nasty woodworking accident. God forbid!
Now floor clutter is also big safety concern because you don’t want to be tripping over things on your floor when you are using any kind of tools. I have had some very close calls with stuff on the floor of my shop. You don’t want to be tripping over your shop vac when you are running stock through the table saw.
I say this from experience. It is not a fun feeling when you are using your table saw or a router and you feel something wanting to trip you on the floor. This can be a serious shop safety concern that can be avoided by keeping your work area free of floor clutter.
I’m pretty passionate about woodworking so I hope the tips above would be useful to you. Once again, if you’re really interested in building a large pirate play ship for your child, you should have a look at the pirate ship playhouse plans pdf package that I spoke of earlier.
