Shop Organization #2: Wall Slat Organizers

11-08-2008 04:45 PM by SteveKorz | 18 comments »

OK. Let me start by saying that my shop is a disaster. More like a DIE-saster. You walk in and it’s much like a bad natual disaster, or war zone- and it’s actually gotten dangerous. I’ve lived out of those bucket buddies for years, and quite frankly, I just have never quite been able to get organized. I like to do things with a certain amount of frugality… recycling everything I can and not buying new stuff. If I have it, and can use it, and it works, I’m...

Shop Organization #3: Hanging saw holder

11-09-2008 09:15 AM by SteveKorz | 10 comments »

I’ve been working on this wall slat system for a couple days. I only had a couple hours to mess with it today. One of the things that I made was a cam action hanging saw holder. I got tired of storing my saws flat against the wall on a nail. It’s inconvenient if you store more than one per nail, then you end up with saws on the bench that you aren’t using (getting dull every time something bumps into them). I made this hanger to solve that problem in my shop. I know,...

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

02-22-2010 02:16 PM 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...

The American Craftsman WorkShop #16: Sheet Goods Organizer

01-04-2010 10:09 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 22 comments »

Increased Efficiency Through Better Organization My shop environment is always shifting and evolving. The goal is to create an efficient space to work in. My shop is not large by business or commercial standards and many hobbyists enjoy a work space as large as mine. But large shop or small, as a business I have to focus on efficiency to make money. A Couple of Problems One of the biggest offenders for this disorderly disaster was storage for sheet goods. The goal is not to bec...

Battery Organizer

12-17-2012 05:43 PM by Daris | 3 comments »

Here was an easy project that I did recently; a battery organizer. I found this plan on the wood magazine website. Here is my attempt at making a video of how I made it, and as always check out my website at: to see more projects and videos of what I’m doing in the shop. I also put up a listing of free project plans that you might find useful. Youtube Link:

Organized Tool Center

01-23-2016 06:13 PM by TheMrWoody | 5 comments »

Here’s how I created a tool organizer for my measuring items. It’s got a place for all of the items I use frequently. Slots in the holding blocks keep multiple tools in each spot. It makes it very easy to find things and a quick way to see if you’re missing something. This is also a location for controlling my compressor. The white power switch remotely turns it on/off. The pressure control valve and water separator are right next to the switch. I used RapidAir for the flexible hose sy...

From the "Little Good Pieces" Blog Archives #8: Sauce Packet Bin - Part 2

02-26-2011 03:51 PM by TheGravedigger | 1 comment »

This article was originally posted on the Little Good Pieces blog on Oct 10, 2010. When we left our bin, it was being overrun by a horde of shop cats (well, two anyway). Since that time, I added three dividers placed to give four pockets of varying sizes. The unit was then spackled, primed, and painted (yes, white). The bin, together with its pivot blocks, was worked into position. The gap was a little wider than I wanted, so I added a piece of 1/4” plywood as a shim on the le...

From the "Little Good Pieces" Blog Archives #7: Sauce Packet Bin - Part 1

01-29-2011 11:59 PM by TheGravedigger | 0 comments »

This article was first posted on the Little Good Pieces blog on September 29, 2010. While I was starting my planning for the toilet cabinet, it occurred to me that I first needed to build an outfeed table for the new tablesaw. As I was shifting gears to start on THAT, my wife reminded me that we needed some way to organize the sauce flavoring packets that were trying to take over the pantry. Sigh The need should be apparent from the above photo. What I envisioned was some sort ...
