I decided to build a charging station to store my cordless drills. It turned out pretty well and really helped because I just had my drills laying around and my chargers in different places with the cords in the way…. Thanks for watching!

Here is a quick shop tour video for everyone. Enjoy! Thanks for watching!
Ok, as some of you know or gathered from my electrical questions, I have been upgrading my shop once again. When we had our new deck built this summer, I had the electrician run a 40amp sub panel to my shop. You can read about it here. When all was said and done I ran a dedicated 20amp circuit to the DC and 2 independent 20 amp GFCI circuits (about 10 pair of duplex outlets) around the shop. I debated about how high to mount them. I know 48” is fairly standard, however, i do not hav...
I got the inspiration for this from Workbench Magazine . I deliberately did not look at their drawings for dimensions or scale. This cart looked like a good design. As with many projects, it is infinitely easier to customize an existing design rather than come up with all original ideas. How many times do we stand on the shoulders of giants that have gone before us? The inner structure: I replaced the pegboard on theirs with 1/2” plywood thinking I would simply screw to...
The ground is finally drying out and I have started clearing the area for the shed. I need to keep two feet away from the property line, so I’m going to frame out a 10’ x 8’ area with pressure treated 4×4 with rebar stakes to keep everything in place. An inch or two of quarter down gravel levelled inside the frame and then a raised 8’x6’ platform of pressure treated 2×4s with pressure treated decking on top. I’ll put paving stones or something ...
A few years ago I became interested in wood working again. It was probably after I bought a Craftsman table saw from a neighbor for $25. I already had a band saw, a drill press and a sander. But my previous foray was interrupted by a divorce, marriage and 4 moves. It was also about that time that my wife and I decided to convert a bedroom into an office. When we looked at cabinets in the local big box store sticker shock set in. The price was outrageous for a few upper kitchen cabinets m...
As someone commented an entry or two ago: pics or it didn’t happen! Hardly complete, but two of the panels are up, and one has all it’s cleats on. Only had an hour or so in the shop and most of the time was spent clearing off this wall so I had a place to mount the panels! The panels are mounted to the walls with eight 2” #10 screws, and they cross four studs so they are not going anywhere. The vertical panel will only catch two studs unfortunately, but it should ...
Today was a bit of an experiment: Will my son sleep through me using my table saw in the garage? And the answer is: no. Not great news on the woodworking front, but not really surprising. Anyhow, I got about an hour to work in the shop today, and I set up my workmate as a semi-permanent mitre saw stand. My saw is just a cheapo Ryobi 10” SCMS but I swapped out my store brand 80 tooth blade for a CMT speciality SCMS 60 tooth blade today and man am I impressed. I was only cutting ...
We continue on with the build and get our dados sorted out.
