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...

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...

Build a Saw Till with a shelf

02-20-2014 06:51 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

I needed somewhere better to store my hand saws. I wanted something that looked good, held hand saws of varying lengths, and included some storage. Here is what I came up with. Please check out the video for a how too and subscribe to my YouTube channel for weekly videos on Blacksmithing and Woodworking.

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 ...

Garage Re-Do #16: Air Filter Arrived!

03-06-2009 04:24 PM by MyOldGarage | 3 comments »

That’s a peek down the inside of the new Wynn Environmental filter - the 9E300BL one. I’m anxious to get some cutting done and get this puppy mounted on my Grizzly dust collector. Once I get it mounted and that, I’m going to move it over to a more permanent location and run one trunk of at least 6 inch pipe to the unit. The only problem with that is the PVC to “air pipe” sizing. It’s just frustrating to measure stuff and see the differences. I can...

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 ...

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 ...

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 Re-Do #11: Dust Collection Thoughts

02-17-2009 04:26 PM by MyOldGarage | 11 comments »

This past weekend was a lot of fun. Peggy and I went to two woodworking shows and a wood working store. It’s a new affliction we have—with the new shop toys we are looking at what we “can’t live without”. Thankfully nothing else followed us home, but we did get pretty excited about dust collectors. When we were doing the Christmas gifts the sawdust being generated was being dragged into the house each time we’d come in from the garage. Peggy looked pret...
