Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #5: Lower Cabinet Design - Tool Packing

11-23-2017 02:59 AM by Bluenote38 | 5 comments »

SktechUp – what a great tool! I can change things much easier, explore design options, and visualize architectures far easier. After a couple false starts a bit of learning on how SketchUp works compared to its big brothers the lower cabinet literally came together. The lower cabinet is expressly to house most of my power tools – the ones I reach for regularly. The multi-tool and biscuit joiner will stay in their respective cases because they just don’t get used much. T...

Shop Upgrades #25: Kaisen Foam: Door and Latch Kit

02-16-2017 03:26 PM by bkseitz | 1 comment »

I’m a big fan of the Rigid Modular Tool box series. I use these tool boxes mainly to organize my Ryobi ONE+ tools into grab and go kits for projects around the town. I’ve a few other Battery tools hung for easier access, such as drills. But most of my woodshop are either hand tools or power tools, so portability for out of shop work trumped in-shop convenience. The a couple of weeks ago I had gotten some kaizen foam to organize my shop(s) better. First off was my measur...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1753: Returning to "Normal"

08-01-2016 12:14 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

As we begin this month of August, I am finally feeling as if things are getting back to 'normal'. Defining what that means isn't always easy, but after months of distractions and preparations and then our actual move, it feels pretty good.Everything essential to our daily living is just about done. Furniture is here and in place, boxes are put away and shops are set up. The most important thing though is that our 'creative places' are clean and comfortable and ready to be ...

Making of a Shop #1: Finally Starting

07-19-2016 11:23 AM by nbgarageshop | 3 comments »

I bought my house in 2012 and remodeled the whole interior and exterior. I setup a rough shop in my garage so I could do the things I needed in order to do my remodel. Now that I’m done with the work that I/my wife wanted done inside and out, I can finally start setting up my garage for woodworking. Its been awhile since I’ve built anything nice from scratch, mostly just some refinishing or making a few things for the home remodel. My garage is 23×20 but its not all usable...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1741: Organization

06-10-2016 12:20 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

As I mentioned before, the next several weeks will be quite busy for Keith and I. We are in the process of preparing to move in the next few weeks and there is a great deal of things we need to do. It isn't that we were unorganized while living in our current place, but rather that we are expanding our living space to nearly four times what we have today. Needless to say, we are beyond excited. While Keith and I think differently on several issues (and what couple doesn't?), one ...
