Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #21: Dungeon Gets A Lumber Rack

11-21-2014 01:22 PM by Paul Bucalo | 4 comments »

A couple of days ago I started on a wall-mounted lumber rack in the dungeon. At that time I had barely enough room to get around the Black and Decker Power Mate and various stuff laying around, including the destructed pallet wood I had in various piles on the floor. Here is what my workspace looked like while I was constructing the rack: Because of the limited space, I didn’t want to use the miter saw in this project. This past summer I bought a Stanley FatMa...

Time to make some changes to the shop. #12: Time for a new Lumber Rack

11-11-2014 01:32 AM by AngieO | 10 comments »

HEY! Hello LJ’ers. I have been super busy in my shop and in my garage lately. YES… there is a difference. There USED to be a garage at my house and now it is a wood shop. On the other hand… two minutes away from my house is a storage garage. :) Anyhow… here is one of the many projects that I’ve been working on. The tote storage racks helped a bunch. And it motivated me to get the lumber racks done. I plan on building two. I have one done. So…. I did this kinda backwards this...

New Shop building! #9: ... Rack 'em up!

09-25-2014 03:01 PM by JoeinGa | 4 comments »

This was the mess you saw when first entering my shop. (Notice the picture taped to the wall with blue tape)...Bonnie asked me what was that little picture taped to the wall for? I explained that this was the wall where I would build a lumber rack, and that was a print screen I stole from Jay’s Custom Creations to remind myself of what I wanted to do there... .. . Now it just so happens that I have been tripping over two 2” X12” X16’ boards that someone was ...

Shop Organization #1: Vertical Lumber Rack

06-02-2014 04:25 PM by pintodeluxe | 13 comments »

I found the need for a lumber rack, and knew I wanted to orient the lumber vertically. From my many lumber shopping adventures, I find it easier to sort through and retrieve lumber from vertical racks. -----The far left compartment is for sheet goods. The rest of the rack will store hardwood. -----The rack is made from 2x lumber which ties into the top plate of an exterior wall, and to a beam. -----The brackets are made of scrap white oak.-----They are assembled with dados, glue and scre...

Workshop #24: ShopQuest 2014- Wood Rack Revisited

02-09-2014 04:45 PM by clieb91 | 5 comments »

So as I mentioned in my earlier blogs for this year’s ShopQuest I wanted to get rid of my wood rack. I decided that was going to take a major effort and instead to do a little better allocation of space on it and see how it works this year. I spent a weekend cleaning it up and finding space for some of the wood and getting rid of some of it as well. I am not a fan of throwing out wood but some of it just was not going to be useful at all. I narrowed it down a little further and used pie...

Workshop Organization #1: Phase 1

01-25-2014 01:39 PM by DBuonomano | 2 comments »

Like many of my fellow LJ’s my workshop is setup in half of my two car garage. My workshop has been setup over the last few years as I’ve acquired new tools, and taken on new projects. Because it grew gradually there was no overall design or plan behind the setup… it’s just kind of happened. I’m sure that sounds familiar to someone else out there… So after I completed a couple of Christmas projects, the whole time muttering under my breath (or occasio...

This is just a quick video to say thanks to fellow woodworker Jay Bates. Check out his video to see how he made some simple and inexpensive brackets that can be used for shelving or lumber storage. Thanks for watching. Take care.

Future Shop Shelving #1: OK - it's not all wood!

01-06-2013 01:03 PM by curliejones | 0 comments »

I have previously commented on the transition to a new workshop knowing this would be a long, long, process. But with each journey, you must take one step at a time. Last year I built a garden shed/greenhouse as a first step. Mowers, tillers, chainsaw, etc. all have a new home thus clearing the current “shed’s” dropshed. I just began phase two – and this involves closing in about 2/3 of the carport. The motivation to write about it came from the shelving I ...

Workshop #16: ShopQuest 2012- Serious Progress Made

02-04-2012 04:19 AM by clieb91 | 7 comments »

but still more to go. Over the past few evenings and having the day today I was able to put another serious dent in the reorg of my shop. I have officially gotten everything moved around to about where I want it. The major push (and I mean it physically) was to get my lumber cart moved over to the wall that is just bare concrete and therefore not good for hanging anything. So here is what the back of the shop looked like last week. With a bit of pushing and some help from those little ...
