Project Plans

The "plans" section allows users to view plans submitted by other users or certified plans from Kreg. Filters and sorting were added to help users find exactly what they are looking for.

Plan Pages

Each project plan has its own page with directions, tools, materials, and a parts/cut list. Users can view pictures and videos and post comments for moderators or other users to answer. There is also a "view builds" functionality that allows users to see how others  have completed the plan.
