Small Shop Adventures #7: Working Hard and Hello Winter.

11-16-2014 03:43 PM by BrockF | 1 comment »

(Note: This blog is the most current, as of November 16. It should be #8.)* Hello winter. We have snow on the ground but nothing like to the north in Wisconsin. Still, timing is everything. I have spent the time between my last blog and now racing the weather to complete the bench and get shop ready for the car to come back. If I had one of those little compacts this would be no big deal, likewise a large garage. But the car is a Durango and the shop is only 18×20. And my pl...

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...

Shop Upgrade - 2014 #1: Extreme Makeover - Shop Edition

06-12-2014 07:24 AM by scoobydooo9r | 3 comments »

Well, just about a week or two after I finally got around to shooting a shop tour video, I decided to finally purchase a drum sander which forced me to rearrange the shop. Of course, since I knew that changes were coming, I also decided it was as good a time as any to really take a look at the shop and fix the nagging problems that I encounter here and there. So, here’s a short list of things that will be upgraded: 1. Dust Collection 2. Shop Layout 3. Lighting 4. Too...

Workshop #26: ShopQuest 2014- got around to it.

03-05-2014 02:57 AM by clieb91 | 5 comments »

For quite awhile now this is how my pliers have been stored above my workbench… Since I was puttering around the shop today with yet another snow day. I finally took a few minutes to make a rack. I used some games that did not turn out for one reason or another as sides and a piece of scrap 2×4 that was once a shelf in my shop. Nothing very exciting I know… however as I continue to think about it I think this space is going to become a bigger area for a future S...

Build a Saw Till with a shelf

02-20-2014 06:51 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

I needed somewhere better to store my hand saws. I wanted something that looked good, held hand saws of varying lengths, and included some storage. Here is what I came up with. Please check out the video for a how too and subscribe to my YouTube channel for weekly videos on Blacksmithing and Woodworking.

Workshop #25: ShopQuest 2014- I found my Workbench!

02-16-2014 07:53 PM by clieb91 | 5 comments »

Here you can see my workbench on the right side, this is what it looked like after I got the Lathe off and on its stand. Some items were shuffled but it generally was full of lots of stuff. I took some time yesterday and this morning to do some cleaning and organizing. Much better :) I also worked a bit on my Lathe area as I need to get that straightened out with the new lathe there. Cleared off all of the shelves and actually figured out what all was on them. They loo...

Season of shop upgrades #1: Shop Improvements

02-16-2014 10:24 AM by PJ72 | 3 comments »

This past year I have occupied my shop time in efforts to organize the shop and spent the time to build several shop tools and accessories. Having a garage shop that is primarily used for parking cars; it has been a constant challenge to optimize the space as a part time woodworking shop. This year I removed everything from the garage to thoroughly clean and re-organize the shop. I painted the walls and added 8 banks of overhead fluorescent lights to brighten up the space. Free up Spac...

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...

From garage to workshop #1: A preliminary survey

02-06-2014 08:20 AM by JSOvens | 8 comments »

Hello fellow LJs and visitors, I am a fairly new member here on the Lumberjocks website and have so far only managed to post one project (the one that got me into this woodworking ‘mess’). I have done quite a few other small projects (which I may post in due time), but there has been one thing throughout all of my woodworking ‘life’ (about a year by now) which has been bothering me and constantly hampering my progress on any project: a messy, disorganized workshop! ...

Garage Shop Organization #1: Garage Organization Project

01-22-2014 12:15 AM 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 ...
