Was reading one of my favorite tool blogs last week and was intrigued by a post and the challenge it contained. Stuart from Toolguyd posted an article that talked about a Kickstarter campaign for some simple desktop cord keepers called “Stacks” and how it might be a good DIY project. In the article, he also threw out a challenge: Weekend Challenge: Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to design or make a desktop cable and cord stop or tamer of your own. Ch...
I needed badly some shelving to organize the feed and other paraphernalia for the chickens. I also wanted to divide an area in the garage into two parts, one being my weaving studio and the other the afore mentioned storage. I finally got it done, although the areas have not been totally closed off from each other yet. I need my carpenter friend to come and hang a door for me and I could use some extra hands to close off the top portion above the shelves. That will have to wait until weR...
There’s been a few things in my shop that I’ve had in the back of my head to do, things to improve my situation. So these last couple of days I’ve decided to tackle a few. They are not all pictured below. [Below] Somewhere in the past I bought this Porter Cable 8 inch, variable speed grinder. I remember during my research that one complaint about it was that the goose neck light only received power when the grinder was turned on. In other words when the light was on the...
With the purchase of tools over the last 2 years I feel a need to reorganize my workshop so that I don’t trip over stuff and I can install ductwork for the DC. I have one long wall about 30’ that I want to line up all the tools, have all the work surfaces be one height so that they can be each other’s outfeed and infeed support and I want it all on wheels so that I can roll one to the middle of the workshop should the need arise. I scoured sketchup’s 3D warehouse an...
Not a huge addition to the shop, but this helped out clean up a lot of clutter on my desk area. But little by little im getting closer to a nice organized shop. I just used whatever scrap I had laying around which help clear up a little clutter in another part of the shop! :) I really love this piece even though it was such a small addition!
I filmed the build on my YouTube Channel. Please check it out! Please like, share, and if you enjoyed the video subscribe! http://youtu.be/KIjZJoHwwB4 My solution to storing my sandpaper was not ideal. As you can see in the pictures, the paper has curled from the previous storage method. I make a simple tray style rack to store each grit of paper separately. Materials: MDF, Hardboard, Glue, Label Maker Construction Methods: Rabbits, and grooves, glue. I filmed the build on my YouT...
Organization is an ongoing process. You don't just organize things once it seems. I have come to that realization as I think back on how many times I have blogged about making our small place here more efficient and organized. I have been writing for nearly five years now (I think!) and it seems that every year around this time we always come up with new and improved ways to make working from our home here not only more efficient, but more aesthetically pleasing as well. After all ...
I’m always trying to figure out how to use the many things we throw out in our day to day lives. In no way can I be considered a fanatic about this, but I try to consider any containers we put out for recycling. I use our Nestle Quick canisters to store the standard screws and finish nails in my shop. They are a good size, they are sturdy plastic and they are oblong, which allows the smaller of the two available sizes to be carried in a normal cloth nail apron! Originally the ...
