Dave's Workshop #4: Drills-Keeping Things More at Hand

10-30-2014 09:20 PM by Dave Rutan | 1 comment »

Above: A while ago I built this stand for my drill press. It’s got a deep drawer and two shelves behind double doors. It got really tiring having to open the doors, bend over, and reach in to grab either my electric (corded drill,) or my handy hand drill. So today I put a thought into action. I looked up drill holders and found this really basic design to keep things at hand. Above: A simple chunk of 2×4 with two holes drilled into it and a little cutting and I got thi...

Easy Pallet made Yard Tool Storage

09-28-2013 01:06 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 1 comment »

I was tired of walking around tripping over shovels, rakes, brooms, and whatever else was laid around. I didn’t want to buy one of those plastic corner tool storage things from the local big box store so I made one a few years ago. After yard duties have evolved, so has the collection of tools. Now I have axes, mauls, and sledge hammers. It was time to build another tool storage. This was made from a single pallet, so it has that “rustic” look. Tools used: circular saw, dril...

My TINY shop renovation #2: Plans are starting to come together.

01-09-2013 03:48 AM by StayinBroke | 2 comments »

So, starting this blog yesterday and putting ideas down in my idea book has helped ease my frustrations with my shop so much that this entry just might be a little more, um, ..... normal. If there is such a thing. (Well, the beers I drank last night may have had a little to do with that too) I think it’s because I can share my thoughts and ideas with people here that have similar problems since my wife doesn’t get it and really doesn’t care. Anyway, I wanted to start this en...

The cluttered shop #1: Re-Doing my shop

01-17-2012 06:29 PM by Bagtown | 4 comments »

So, like many others, I’m hoping by recording my journey publicly here it will help me to actually achieve some of these goals.I like many folks out there have been laid off and am actively pursuing employment everyday. But I still find myself with extra time on my hands. So I’ve found myself in the shop more and more. I made some Christmas presents, and birthday presents, and I think it’s time to reorganize the shop. I’ve recently bought a used jointer and a new bands...

Fastner & Small Parts Storage

06-05-2011 06:46 AM by Eric in central Florida | 13 comments »

Hi everyone. I was trying to figure out a way to store some of my fasteners and small parts which lead me to construct this. Take some Dollar Store baking pans, some scrap wood, and a little routing, sanding & painting and problem solved. I then use my label maker to identify what is in each pan. I’m still sorting things out, but so far it’s worked great. You can take the one you need to your work area and bring it back when you’re done. I don’t think it&#...

Shop Update #6: Getting started on some storage

04-24-2011 05:02 AM by TheKingInYellow | 2 comments »

My wife is finally feeling better after an absolutely dreadful couple of weeks. 14 days of 102+ degree fevers are just brutal. I checked out a used Ridgid TS3650 this week as I am still considering an upgrade from my jobsite saw, but I will tell you that people in Winnipeg are unrealistic about pricing of used items. This particular saw had been used as a table for some angle-grinding work and the top was chewed up on the edges. It was thoroughly corroded (three years outdoors with now ...

The things you find find...

03-17-2011 01:49 PM by HickoryHill | 8 comments »

So I’ve made my drill charging station and decided I needed to cleanup a few boxes of miscellaneous shop stuff from when I moved 4 hrs ago. It’s amazing what you can find when you clean. I found a router wrench that I’d been looking for for atleast year. I must of tossed it in there one day. I also discovered that I had doubles of two forstner bit which they don’t give away. Guess I need to get organized more often!
