Woodshop Build #2: My Space

50 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

77 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

91 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

126 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

367 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...

407 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...

Drying Wisteria

643 days ago by Ken Caputa | 9 comments »

Hello !I’ll be cutting down my 25 year old Wisteria real soon and I’m not really sure what the best way to dry it before using it. In the garage, outside under my covered shed or in the basement in the heating room? There is a lot of wood for several walking sticks and the main trunk is approximately 4ft long and 5” to 6a” thick. Should I take the bark off before drying or after ? I hope someone ca help me. Thank you, Ken

Setting Up Shop #2: The Tools Are Here

669 days ago by Rex B | 1 comment »

I have done a lot of work on the woodshop since my last post. My fiancee and I spent a weekend painting the whole garage, and it looks awesome. The previous owner had taped and screwed stuff to the walls all over the place, and now all those marks have disappeared. Once the painting was done, I was able to move my tools and workbench in, with the help of 3 strong friends. I’m sure glad I only had to move the table saw about 3/4 of a mile to the new house. Here’s what the sh...

Setting Up Shop #1: The Plan, Advice Wanted

677 days ago by Rex B | 11 comments »

So here’s the background: I bought my first house about 3 weeks ago and have been planning my garage woodshop for about a month now. I am almost ready to start moving in and figured that I can use the advise of my fellow Jocks before I dig in. I don’t have a picture of the garage to put up, but it’s a pretty standard 2-car garage with no windows. It came with some pegboards and other built-in shelving on the walls, but I wanted a fresh start so I have been removing everyt...

Insulated Garage Doors #1: Insulated Sectional Overhead

740 days ago by Peter | 2 comments »

I was inspired last week to find yet another use for my Sing Honeycomb Panels. We’re launching a line of insulated panels for overhead garage doors. I’ve noticed that too many nice homes have dinged up garage doors. It’s because garage doors are expensive to repair. You don’t want to replace a panel for a golf ball dent, so you let it go until the damage is beyond cosmetic. Soon, you’ve run into the garage door with your car or time has made the edges drafty, so ...
