Dave's Workshop #11: Puttering Around with Loose Ends

08-19-2015 08:19 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

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...

Shop Projects #5: Wall O'Tools

08-17-2015 12:22 AM by fiddlebanshee | 1 comment »

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...

shop remodel #2: paint organized

04-13-2015 12:18 AM by Woodpecker23 | 1 comment »

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!

Sandpaper Storage Rack

02-17-2015 05:13 PM by GlassImpressions | 3 comments »

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...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1492: Organizational Project 2015 - Phase 1

02-06-2015 01:25 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

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 &#...

Hints and Tips #5: A 'Quick' Way to Store Nails, Screws, Etc.

02-05-2015 04:26 PM by Dave Rutan | 6 comments »

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 ...

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...
