A change in woodworking habit and environment #1: Changes to the environment

642 days ago by David Craig | 5 comments »

I have had a number of changes in my life over the course of the last year. I was a little spoiled over the last five years with a job that I could work from home and a schedule that allowed a somewhat normal pattern of sleep. I have been adjusting to the midnight shift and a couple hour drive each day. I don’t expect much sympathy here, I am grateful that I am still gainfully employed :) But it has caused me to have to reassess how I spend time on my hobby. Kiids, relationships, wor...

Tool thoughts #37: Cleaning Day!

677 days ago by NedB | 4 comments »

I was out in the shop for a bit last night, planing these down: And afterwards I was cleaning up the inevitable stray chips and dust with my new dust-rite nozzle. I noticed, however that it wasn’t doing such a great job of picking up. You guessed it, my DC is Chock full at the moment. So, job 1 today is to empty the DC, then I’m going to attack the creeping meatball that always shows up in my shop. That’s my term for clutter. I’ve got the first meeting for my Ro...

how i save space in my shop #2: organizing my shoebox shop

1154 days ago by emart | 3 comments »

for those that have seen my shop it is immediately apparent that space and organization is not easy in my 10×10 shed. the terms 10 lbs in a 3 lb bag come to mind for the longest time i have been wanting to put up a decent sized pegboard in my shop but as always space was a problem. i have 2 smaller plastic ones near my RAS but that just isnt enough anymore now that my machines have displaced several of my storage cabinets. in the back i originally had a small set of shelves that ba...

Garage Organization By a Newbie #2: More Demolition - and Junk!!

1517 days ago by CyBorge | 5 comments »

With the behemoth out of the corner, the bulk of the demolition was done. I still had to take down the cabinets, but I decided to go through the junk in the garage first to clear out some space. I should have done this a week or two ago when I piled it all up in one spot, because now I was effectively undoing all that work. Oh well. I sorted everything into three piles: my stuff, my wife’s stuff, and garbage. The garbage piled turned out to be the biggest of the bunch. We appare...

Reclaiming space and building my shop

1626 days ago by lovinmrv | 7 comments »

It’s time to get organized. I moved to Vt in 2003, a lovely home with a great view and a huge garage/carriage house. The upstairs of the carriage house serves as my office and a guest BR. Downstairs is a big 2 car garage that will serve as my shop. Right now it is hopelessly crammed with too much stuff…some mine, some my ex’s, and is home to a solar heating project I’m working on. So, in order of priority, my tasks are: 1. Finish and store first solar pan...

Tool thoughts #2: Doors!

2158 days ago by NedB | 3 comments »

Howdy folks, got a little more progress on the shop this weekend. It’s been a long project, and I’m far from done. This weekend was spent avoiding the last summer blast of heat, and hanging the doors on the shop… This may seem like a small step, but for me it marks when I can truly start moving in equipment and stuff into the shop. Starting to get a little crowded in there, but that’s the nature of the beast… at only 240 sq ft I’ll be doing...
