Sandpaper Organizer

1948 days ago by sIKE | 3 comments »

One of the future follow on project from the Norms Miter Bench project was to build in a sand paper organizer into one of the drawers of the bench.In early February a fellow LJ KnotWright told me about a liquidation sale from the shutdown of a Dell production line. I bought a bunch of things but one of the jewels was a 2’x2’ bin for PC components on the assembly line. I looked at it, knew that it would fit in one of my drawers and immediately re-purposed it in my head. With all of...

French Cleat

702 days ago 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.

005: scrap cutoff shelves #1: Finally got some of this lingering idea together

1599 days ago by Gary Fixler | 11 comments »

I have redesigned this thing several times, waaay overdesigned it in SketchUp while briefly mad with visions of increasingly elaborate designs in even the most utilitarian of shop storage solutions, and tried to build it 3 times previously, giving up nearly immediately each time when things failed to work out. I’ve switched between construction grade ply and premium baltic birch ply. I’ve failed to account for kerf and cut things undersized, and failed to check ply for square befo...

Router Table #9: Drawers, Bits, and a little Playtime

1635 days ago by PurpLev | 19 comments »

Had some shop time today with 42 degrees outside, it was quite a lovely day. my compressor came back to life also – I guess when it goes below 40 the air is too thin for the compressor to be able to raise the pressure in the tank. I also got the radiant heater from Lee Valley. Last time around, by the time I decided to order it- they were out of stock, and just received new stock this week. it works well, not as well as I was hoping for, but decent. To turn it on/off you have to yank...

The American Craftsman WorkShop #18: Shop Organization Continues

1646 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 20 comments »

Purging the Lumber Rack Woodworkers naturally have the hoarding instinct and this must be kept in check with strict discipline. The lumber rack has been gathering leftover material and unique pieces of wood for years with little culling to insure the quality of the collection. I cleared three small shelves first and gave a good stack of wood away to a local LumberJock member. He got a Porter Cable dovetail jig for Christmas and this will keep him busy with making boxes. I had the wood b...

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

755 days ago 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...

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

1519 days ago 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 ...
