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 ...

Ultimate Mobile Woodworking Bench (UMWB) #9: Overall impressions of my Ultimate Mobile Woodworking Bench

01-05-2014 09:52 PM by Garry | 3 comments »

I have to say I’m very pleased with the UHWB. I started work on it a few months ago and it’s been usable for the last month and a half. These last two weeks on Christmas vacation gave me time to really focus and get it finished. After way too many years of makeshift garage workshops in rented houses, it feels great to have an organized workspace that I know I can take with me almost anywhere. I built a small bookcase for my wife’s craft room and it went very smoothly. Her...

Shop Notes #1: How do you manage your shop?

12-29-2013 11:56 PM by DocSavage45 | 25 comments »

Spent at least 4 hours today just cleaning up. Wanted to start planning my dust collection stations , joints etc, but I ended up just counting what parts I have collected so far and cleaning up garbage and saw dust from inside my cabinet saw. I wondered what methods of organization might be more efficient. So I am asking for my fellow lumberJocks to share their sage like wisdom. Thanks Tom.

Shop Organization - Benchtop Tool Cabinets #1: The Beginning of Tool City

01-29-2013 12:32 AM by sugerman | 2 comments »

I have spent an insane amount of time contemplating the most efficient way to setup my small shop. My main goals were: Giving each benchtop tool its own dedicated home. I waste so much time pulling them out and setting them up whenever I have to switch modes. Maintain the working area around my table saw to allow easy breakdown of large sheet goods. Give my mitre saw, jointer and planer appropriate infeed and outfeed space. Set the tools at a comfortable working height to reduce ...

Shop Organization #1: Chisel Rack!

11-17-2012 01:11 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

For all the version with pictures, please click here. I guess I got a bug to get more organized as the projects I’m working on get more complicated, storing all the tools in the rolling tool chest o’ many drawers is getting awkward. Plus it seems like all the cool kids have a chisel rack…. I came up with this a few days ago in my head, but I’m sure it’s just an amalgamation of all the cool designs I’ve seen out there. I’m pretty sure the slo...

A change in woodworking habit and environment #1: Changes to the environment

10-19-2012 06:17 AM by David Craig | 5 comments »

I have had a number of changes in my life over the course of the last year. I was a little spoiled over the last five years with a job that I could work from home and a schedule that allowed a somewhat normal pattern of sleep. I have been adjusting to the midnight shift and a couple hour drive each day. I don’t expect much sympathy here, I am grateful that I am still gainfully employed :) But it has caused me to have to reassess how I spend time on my hobby. Kiids, relationships, wor...

French Cleat

08-07-2012 04:59 PM by Litrenta | 6 comments »

Started adding a french cleat system to keep my tiny little space organized. I had tons of scrap pieces of plywood and dowels hanging around from previous projects so was able to make good use of it. I absolutely love this setup and have had a lot of fun building out all the attachments for the wall.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #733: Another Organization Day

06-15-2012 12:20 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

With all the new storage boxes that we acquired the other day shopping, it was inevitable that what would follow would be an organizational session. Many people comment on how we are able to keep so organized running a business from our small place. Even Ellen (who is notorious for being neat) said something to me when we stopped there on our way home. She had said that her and Cindy (her daughter) were talking about us the other day and were both amazed that we are able to keep things so cl...
