Garage Cabinets #5: Scrap use in basement shop

31 days ago by John Lowell | 1 comment »

Trying again, here are the three 24” boxes, with a few shelves – used up all the longer pieces, but may be able to put together a few bins with the remainder. The three small shelves are in the shop. Here is the wide view of the garage now, will build a third hanging for the remaining space, then on to lower cabs and a small garage bench. May take another 6 months, but am motivated to finish now…. cheers

Garage Cabinets #4: another 6 months - but hung a few more

31 days ago by John Lowell | 0 comments »

Waited until I got into a cabinet mood, and then a few weekends. Finished up four more large, with doors and one or two shelves each. If you read the prior post and noted the error, I placed a gap to store step ladders, but had so many folding chairs, installed a shelf between the cabinets and now the space is for short ladders, and chairs. After cutting all the doors, figured I had enough for some short hanging versions, about 11.5 in wide. With the scrap, built the two hanging v...

New shop/garage

39 days ago by BMichs75 | 10 comments »

Me and my wife are close to finalizing everything on the purchase of our first home. Unfortunately there is no space for my shop. There is an attached two car garage but not nearly as large as I need for the tools I have acquired over the last 12 months. The place I am renting now has a sizable 26×34 garage that I use for my shop. Therefore I am planning a shop build. I am thinking of a 30×40 or something close. I worked in residential construction in high school and have a very clo...

New Shop building! #1: Yee Haw! I'm so excited!

81 days ago by JoeinGa | 9 comments »

How many of you remember that 1962 movie ”The Music Man”? (Yes, I’m sure most of you do!) Remember the scene when the Wells Fargo Wagon is heading into town to deliver the musical instruments, and everyone is singing and dancing in the streets? Sure you do… ”Oh ho the Wells Fargo Wagon is’a COMING down the street, and it could be something special for me.” and now you’ll have that dang song stuck in your head for the next few hours! htt...

Woodshop Build #2: My Space

142 days ago by VarnellWoodworks | 8 comments »

A lot of you are probably used to seeing woodshops full of tools and sawdust. Some even have woodshops that the brothers Green would be jealous of. Well, I have neither. In my first blog in this series, I shared my opinions on table saws and told you which one I was purchasing. Today I will be talking about the space that will eventually become my woodshop. As you can see, it looks more like a garage than a woodshop but I’m going to change that over the course of the next few...

Garage Cabinet #2: Slowly but slowly

170 days ago by jakeprater | 2 comments »

This morning, rather than exercising or actually studying for school, I went back to the garage to try to knock out the shelf. I was out there for about 45 minutes, and came in at 1:00 pm. I went out at 8:30. So my day was pretty well shot. I’ll hit the books this afternoon, take a test, and hopefully not fail. Here you can see I’ve got the face frame attached. I like to use dowels to help me keep everything aligned – plus I’m a little cheap, so I don’t wa...

Garage Shop Organization #1: Garage Organization Project

183 days ago by CanuckMike | 7 comments »

Eviction Notice So my shop was located down in our basement but we decided to finish it so I had to move into the garage. It wouldn’t be as warm in the winter but it had a much bigger access door and no stairs to lug heavy pieces up. So out everything moved. As you would expect it was a mess tools were piled in totes and stacked as high as I could reach. After a few very frustrating years living out of totes, never seeming to find the tool I was looking for, it was time to get ...

Work Station #1: Part 1

218 days ago by christenite | 3 comments »

I recently inherited my grandpa’s vintage 10” craftsman table saw. It had a broken fence and was on a wobbly metal cart that had been pieced together. I have no idea honestly if he ever ripped anything more than 3-4” on it because of the fence. Anyways, the saw runs great and I want to put it to good use. Some of the problems presenting me were: 1) Saw will be in a garage shared with other stuff2) The stand and fence needed to be replaced3) My young kids play in the garag...

Workshop #18: Making the wife happier

460 days ago by clieb91 | 9 comments »

As most of you know it is usually a good thing to have a happy wife. Well I am just finishing up a few projects that are helping to make my wife a little happier. Some of you know I have a basement workshop, I keep some of my wood though upstairs in the garage (same place my wife parks everyday). Well the wood was getting a bit out of hand. Note my sheet goods on the far right side. One of my drying piles. So a few weeks ago I tackled the sheet goods side. I got rid of a few ...

In Ceiling Air Cleaner #1: An air cleaner that you won't walk into...

500 days ago by chopnhack | 0 comments »

Well, it all started out with a trip to buy an air cleaner off of craig’s list some time ago. I saw a used Jet AFS-1000B for sale for about $150. After checking out the spec’s, I thought, gee, this would work great, 30×24x12, that’s not too big, I can find a place for it…. Drove about 1.5 hours round trip to discover that hey 30×24x12 is actually too BIG! I imagined myself hanging this thing near the step down that I have entering my garage and knocking mysel...
