Welcome to BuildEazy, your one-stop-shop for all things DIY. We’re here to help you roll up your sleeves and dive into the world of woodworking, one project at a time.
BuildEazy: The Go-To Hub for DIY Enthusiasts
BuildEazy is more than just a blog – it’s a community. We offer a plethora of free and paid DIY plans, tips, product reviews, and comprehensive buying guides. Our aim? To help you craft your way to a home you love.
At BuildEazy, our mission is simple: we want to help 1,000,000 people take pride in creating beautiful woodworking projects with their families. We believe there’s nothing more satisfying than building something with your own two hands – and we’re here to make sure you’ve got all the tools you need to do just that.
BuildEazy started as a humble hobby for Les Kenny in 2001. He began by sharing his successful DIY projects online for anyone to access. Over time, BuildEazy’s popularity soared, and in 2017, it was acquired by Unixal, a French media company. Despite the change in ownership, our commitment to providing high-quality, accessible DIY content has never wavered.
Who We Are
Our team is a diverse group of DIY enthusiasts, professional builders, and writers, all united by a common passion: to make woodworking accessible and enjoyable for all. We’re here to guide you, inspire you, and most importantly, help you create.
At BuildEazy, we take our responsibility seriously. We don’t allow sponsorships to influence our content, and we always provide genuine, unbiased product reviews. Our content is evidence-based, and we always cite our sources. We’re committed to maintaining our editorial integrity, no matter what.

Most of the plans, projects, and articles within the site are authored by the former site owner Les Kenny (unless otherwise stated).
Les is a retired building contractor.
Two “DIY for Kids” books (co-authored with his daughter Roseanne) published in 2004 and 2005 respectively got him started on a writing career publishing numerous online woodworking projects, primarily for this website www.buildeazy.com which is populated with his do-it-yourself woodworking and building projects.
The site first went online in December 2001
The site was originally orchestrated by Les and his daughter Roseanne, a graphic designer.
Les now pretty much runs the site by himself.
BuildEazy does not get involved in any onsite discussion boards or forums or provide any personal project help (simply a time thing), but rather leaves that up to other willing people through the online facilities that are supplied to do just that. This allows Les to get on with what he enjoys most and does best – making things and writing about them.
It is a format that seems to works pretty well. One of the best help tonics has proved to be in the form of ‘User Photo/Comments’ that are added to the end of most projects.
Woodworking or building type plans and projects are continually added to the site, as are the photos and stories that are sent in to us of BuildEazy projects undertaken by other people.
www.buildeazy.com now has a world wide patronage with most visitors coming from (in descending order) USA, Canada, UK, Australasia, South Africa and the rest.
All plans and articles are written using both the imperial (ft and inch) measuring system, and the metric (mm) measuring system with the aim to be as universally understandable as possible.
Les Kenny, Family, and Buildeazy, in Google video
In Dec 14, Google Adsense team sent a crew to make a short video of Les Kenny, family, buildeazy.com, and adsense.
Two days of intense filming condensed into a video a little over a minute long.
A bit more about us
The video pretty much tells about us and the history of BuildEazy.
In the later part of 2007 we entered a video and short story into “the AdSense Story Contest” which was a contest organized by Google asking publishers (website owners) to submit a two minute video of their experiences with AdSense.
Most unexpectedly, our video and story was picked to be featured in the Adsense blog.
