Being new to woodworking, shop projects are a large part of my efforts as new tools come into the shop and the shop becomes more of a shop than a garage. I am refurbishing one wall at a time, so please keep that in mind when an unfinished wall comes into view.
This was an early project to get my clamps out of the way. It was just a simple box placed on said unfinished wall. please excuse the trailer park curtains. They have been replaced now with the mini blinds. :)
This is the second tool cart. It has a new miter saw attached to it now, but still has the small power tools on the lower shelf. Plans are for a shallow drawer up top, and a deeper one for the power tools under it.
After having my lumber piled on the floor for so long, I finally built a rack for it. I looked at all of the popular racks like Steve Ramsey’s but most were more involved than i wanted to invest in, time or money. I am going to put a third layer on it, just a half length, for my cut offs.
This is the first tool cart. as you can see from my photos, I like to get multiple tools on each cart. I also put everything on casters. My wife says I am the king of casters because I stockpile them when I buy. Why not, it takes 4 per cart. On this one is my Craftsman bandsaw, my Rebel router table, and my HF combo sander. Also, shoe box storage below. I love this Rebel router table. It has a cast iron top, with miter and split fence, and cast aluminum framework. At a bit over $200, it was the most economical way to have a router table as opposed to building one from scratch, which I may do eventually using the cast iron top from this one.
I don’t normally like things from HF, but I read about 50 reviews on it and knew that it’s shortcoming were things that could easily be fixed, plus it used 6” stick on paper for the disc sander, which I happen to have a lot of from my auto body days.
The bandsaw is a Craftsman rebranded Rikon, so I got a better saw than I paid for, considering it was on sale and I used my Sears points for further discounting.
