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...

how i save space in my shop #2: organizing my shoebox shop

05-26-2011 06:27 AM by emart | 3 comments »

for those that have seen my shop it is immediately apparent that space and organization is not easy in my 10×10 shed. the terms 10 lbs in a 3 lb bag come to mind for the longest time i have been wanting to put up a decent sized pegboard in my shop but as always space was a problem. i have 2 smaller plastic ones near my RAS but that just isnt enough anymore now that my machines have displaced several of my storage cabinets. in the back i originally had a small set of shelves that ba...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #258: Keeping Things Organized

02-16-2011 02:17 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

I got a large amount of work done yesterday, although it isn’t very exciting to write (or read) about. In preparation for my back up, I wanted to organize my computer and get everything where it belongs. I do this every month or so, but when I am really doing a lot of work it is very easy to have lots of files out of place. The biggest culprit is my “New Pictures” file. This is where I initially collect my reference photos for drawing. I usually use several photos at ...

A Little Me Time

01-02-2011 05:17 PM by WhiskeyWaters | 3 comments »

Pictures can be found at www.woodshopcowboy.com Just missed my flight to Boston, but on the upside, I get a little me time. I’ve been working pretty steady this weekend. I re-organized the workspace. And then – a new storage bench and some rearranging: That new bench is a salvaged office door, ripped in half and cut to needed lengths. It weighs some 200+ lbs. I have three more planks to use, so I’m thinking a new version of my bench that you see, but this one will have the mass n...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #186: First Snow of the Year

12-06-2010 03:06 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

I woke up this morning to a light blanket of white snow. It isn’t the soft, fluffy snow that you see in movies though. It is the wet snow that was almost rain and by the time you see it on the ground, it is more like slush than anything. The streets are clear, as they are too warm for it to stick, but they are deceptively slippery. Winter is definitely knocking at the door. It is still falling now as I write, but it is more of a chunky rain than snow. The sun just came up but th...

Garage Organization By a Newbie #6: Something's Finally Built!

08-04-2010 07:25 AM by CyBorge | 4 comments »

The shelving unit is in service! I ended up using 1/2” plywood all around instead of vertical 2×4’s. I also decided not to depend on the garage walls for primary support, so it can be moved if desired, though I did screw it to a plywood strip that was pre-mounted on the wall. Even though the unit is strong enough on its own, that simple action added a ton of rigidity. Here’s what it looks like, all full of hastily loaded junk, but keep in mind the paint is actually ...

organization #2: a simple, rolling, scrap wood, scrap wood holder

05-13-2010 10:51 AM by Gary Fixler | 6 comments »

Just before starting the new job, I decided to clean up one little area in front of my garage and log racks. I used some 2×4s from that Mexican restaurant that closed down, and pine slats from crates from a restaurant next door to that which was receiving kitchen appliance deliveries at the time (both scores – junky as they may be – here). The wheels were rescued from the simple 2×4 hand truck I made awhile ago, which broke (last 2 pics) from dragging too many huge logs ...

005: scrap cutoff shelves #2: and now there are two

02-25-2010 01:33 PM by Gary Fixler | 14 comments »

All the pieces for both units were cut out at the same time, so there was another waiting to be assembled. I spent some time today on that. Here it is next to the first one, waiting to be filled up: I’ll have to find a new place to hang my roller stand, but that’s okay, as I’ve only been able to hang one of the two here on its over-the-rafters hooks. Right now it’s immediately in front of the new shelving: I learned something interesting about French clea...

organization #1: moving jigs and green wood up higher

02-24-2010 12:26 PM by Gary Fixler | 8 comments »

This is bite-sized post – not really a full post or anything all that interesting, but I wanted to document my ongoing efforts to make a 1-car garage into a world class shop, or whatever is as close to that as possible. I finally drilled some holes in my resawing jig and hung some flanges and pipe nipples to get this thing out from under my feet all the *$#& time. I’ve tripped over this 50x now at least, and it doesn’t matter where I lean it. It’s always somewhe...
