Sandpaper Storage Cabinet #1: Sandpaper Storage Cabinet-1

1294 days ago by Huckleberry | 3 comments »

This is a versatile little cabinet in which you can store whatever your heart desires in it. The overall dimensions for this project is 21”w x 11 ¼”d x 13 ¼” h. Of course if you need something bigger than make it bigger, or to fit your needs. I am using Baltic Birch for mine but use whatever material you feel like using. As always if you have any questions email them to me at askhuck@hucksdiy.com.—http://blip.tv/file/4726686

005: scrap cutoff shelves #1: Finally got some of this lingering idea together

1643 days ago by Gary Fixler | 11 comments »

I have redesigned this thing several times, waaay overdesigned it in SketchUp while briefly mad with visions of increasingly elaborate designs in even the most utilitarian of shop storage solutions, and tried to build it 3 times previously, giving up nearly immediately each time when things failed to work out. I’ve switched between construction grade ply and premium baltic birch ply. I’ve failed to account for kerf and cut things undersized, and failed to check ply for square befo...

"Why is This Car Parked in My Shop?" Turning My One Car Garage Into A Shop #1: Moving the Hand Tools In...Installing A French Cleat System

1692 days ago by Brad_Nailor | 11 comments »

So, I spent all summer building a barn, so I can move all the junk out of my garage, so I can buy a real cabinet saw, jointer, band saw, and drill press and have the room to leave them all reasonably set up so I don’t have to do the Harlem Shuffle every time I want to use a tool…(whew!) And wouldn’t you know it…the wife wants to park her car in the middle of my shop. More about that later…much later! So, I bought my Unisaw and built my out feed tableSo now I need...

Setting up my shop #3: The planes are on the wall.

1717 days ago by CoolDavion | 2 comments »

After reading a lot of different options about how to store your planes (on there sole, on their side, blade in, blade out, etc) here is what I came up with: Here is the holder, basically two platforms on opposite ends of a cleat, edged with pieces of lattice As you can see I sized the platforms to be short of the blade opening. Both platforms are the same size so that I don’t need to place the plane the same direction every time.

French Cleat Wall Storage System

1739 days ago by thewoodwhisperer | 28 comments »

A French cleat is as ingenious as it is simple. It involves securing a strip of wood with a 45 degree bevel to the wall, and then securing an opposing beveled strip on the back of a cabinet or anything you want to hang. Its incredibly strong and versatile. Its a great way to hang cabinetry and as you’ll see in this video, it can be used to make an awesome modular wall storage unit.

2 Year Project Finally Complete

1790 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 17 comments »

Crossin’ it off the list! It was just a small project but one that I had neglected since December 2008 and since October 2007 before that. That was the original start date. Anyway, I finished it up today and Mama’s happy so everybody’s happy. I also reclaimed a little space that it was taking up in the shop. It is amazing how those little projects eat up space on the shelves. Exercise Discipline I should make a rule that once a project is started I can’t qu...

Garage Overhead Cabinets #6: Viola! Garage Cabinets.

1950 days ago by MyOldGarage | 9 comments »

(Triumphant sound of music in the background . . . . ) The garage cabinets are finally done. Last night we cut the 2×4 we used for the french cleat on the back of the cabinets and the rail on the wall. That was a kind of terrifying experience . . . getting that much board through the Shopsmith at a 30 degree angle. I had my feather board on and pushing sticks—all the safety measures I could think of. The operation made a ton of saw dust that blanketed us . . . because I ...
