Workshop Build #6: Framing

02-24-2010 05:05 PM by ~Julie~ | 5 comments »

Finally time to frame the walls! We used 2×6 lumber and 8’ foot lengths for the studs that are 16” OC. These are placed on a 2×6 plate and with two 2×6’s for the top plate. Of course this sits on top of the blocks and so it makes the wall height about 9’. We put the walls up in sections and used the top 2×6 to run across sections to hold them together. We did have anchor bolts that came up from the foundation, through the holes in the blocks an...

Home Workshop #1: The War against Clutter

02-24-2010 02:35 PM by David Craig | 21 comments »

This week I found myself between projects and this is my on call week, so I decided to invest my time in cleaning up my basement shop. I have an on call rotation every other week which means that I could get paged anytime, 24/7. I do not like to do to many projects that require much concentration during my on call cycle because the infrequent paging makes it difficult to have a good stop point where a step is properly completed. Every 6 months or so, I have a tendency to move things around...

organization #1: moving jigs and green wood up higher

02-24-2010 12:26 PM by Gary Fixler | 8 comments »

This is bite-sized post – not really a full post or anything all that interesting, but I wanted to document my ongoing efforts to make a 1-car garage into a world class shop, or whatever is as close to that as possible. I finally drilled some holes in my resawing jig and hung some flanges and pipe nipples to get this thing out from under my feet all the *$#& time. I’ve tripped over this 50x now at least, and it doesn’t matter where I lean it. It’s always somewhe...

events #2: Anderson Plywood "Tools of the Trade" Old Tool Swap Meet - pics!

02-24-2010 12:13 PM by Gary Fixler | 7 comments »

I’ve been lagging on getting these pics up since this past Saturday. I’ve been busy in the garage, and tonight I went to see a taping in Hollywood of an episode of a TV show that my old friend from college wrote. It’s his first written episode, and it was a good time. Anyway, Anderson Plywood is in west LA, just north of the Washington/Sepulveda intersection: It didn’t look like there was too much to see walking up from the nearby lot: However, I k...

Setting up shop #1: Where it stands. . . .

02-24-2010 10:02 AM by dfdye | 0 comments »

After doing a bunch of topical stuff (painting, drywall patching, etc.) my wife and I are about to start some major remodeling projects in our new house. Before I start projects like new cabinetry and some new furniture, I need to get the shop set up to work efficiently. Prior to moving into our new house, I cobbled together parts for my shop—a set of cabinets with a laminate counter top for a bench, a cheap dresser for a miter saw stand, etc. Well, I finally have some dedicated shop...
