“I would like to thank you for the many hours of enjoyment I have had making many of your projects. I have built all of your trains and fire trucks. The latest is your Wildflower Rocking Horse. I keep checking your web just to make sure I am not missing something. I have a lot of my projects in my office and they get a lot of attention. Again I want to thank you and keep those plans coming”. B. Cunningham

"I congratulate you on the details and completeness of the plans and I have found that if I follow them exactly, it all goes together very well.......you have a feeling of accomplishment as individual segments are completed. It will be a Christmas gift for my grandson." L. Drake

"My 13 year old son and I had attended a trade show in Grand Rapids and viewed a completed working model.....The construction process required learning a few new techniques. The tower was built in sections and finished with clear polyurethane as soon as the section was completed....I believe it will be around in the future when grandchildren come to visit." L.F. Howland Michigan

"I recently finished your Marble Chest. It was fun to build and I must compliment you on your design, instructions and patterns. Great Job. The layout and dimensions were so accurate that I had few problems. I also built my grandson the Marble Tower. The first time he saw it, he played nearly 5 hours straight with it. Great plans and a fine job." R. Altier

”I solved the hinge problem by adding a small block of wood below the lid. The project works well and my grandsons were thrilled to get it.” B. Myhre

"Anyone looking for an interesting, challenging, and fun project, this is it. Many hours can be spent making and assembling this project. It will have you scratching your head at times, but when people watch marbles go thru the maze, they'll say that's amazing. It will be worth the time spent." d J. Dixon

Hello! I'm writing on behalf of my 85 year old father, who just completed the Victorian Dollhouse. I've attached pictures. As you can see, he went above and beyond what the plans called for :-) It is truly a masterpiece! The recipient is my grand-daughter (his great- granddaughter)...So proud of my Dad! Enjoy!! D. Koehn

An added note; His interior additions are not included in the plan. They were his designa. Very impressive. We have learned this woodworker may take on two more houses for other family members

We have other examples of finished projects that are included with YouTube videos on the individual plan pages. There are many more examples of our plans on the internet. Especially examples of our Marble devices you can find searching in Google.

 


Some time ago while searching the internet, we stumbled on to pages showing contest winners at Rockler Woodworking’s annual design contest. As we searched through years of contest winners, we were surprised at the number of our completed plans woodworkers had completed and entered in the national contest. We capture a couple pages (below showing two of our horse plans). We assumed the other pages would stay on line but they were later taken down. The list below shows (old) links of contest winners using woodworking plans from Forest Street Designs.

Another surprise was to learn the celebrated Craftsmanship Museum in Carlsbad California features many of our finished plans. Below are some images from artisan’s creations on display there. Their site is: www.craftsmanshipmuseum.com
