Plans for building wooden furniture

Today we are going to share the plans to build wooden furniture that we found on the Tocomadera site, a social furniture project, developed in the research activities of the University Center of Design of Uruguay.

A system for guide and help in the construction of oneself thanks to a system of manuals and plans illustrating step-by-step processes. The design of the manuals is intended for people with no previous experience in this type of project.

The products follow the traditional types of furniture for the interior, meeting the basic needs of a typical home. Wood is the structural material, betting on durability. The system can be produced on a small or large scale, or be part of training and self-build programs.

To get started, we have a general guide to basic tools, materials, and processes. Below we share the manuals and blueprints for each of the 23 products
