Open Shelves Bracket

11-14-2012 03:22 AM by BertFlores58 | 2 comments »

The wooden brackets. My daughter Janna needs additional shelves in the dorm to be attached in a concrete wall. There are 3 objectives: 1) The shelves has to be individually installed in a convenient space (the dorm is too small and has very limited space. 2) There is a need that it will be removed later when you need to transfer from other rooms. (Actrually we are only renting the dorm while Janna is taking Dentistry course 3 years to go from now). 3) Easy to instal...

Home improvement and Repair #2: Built in Home Library and Entertainment Center

10-05-2012 04:49 PM by C_Philhower | 1 comment »

This is a recap of a project I did almost 2 years ago, but wanted to post it online and just got around to it now. My Wife and I have a room in our basement that was partially finished by the previous owners of our home. For the first year and a half that we owned the house the room had a dartboard, an XBox and TV, a futon and about a dozen boxes of books. The walls were already sheet rocked and painted, carpet was installed and there was even an attempt at a tray ceiling with a small ceil...

Simple Garage Shelving Unit

02-03-2012 07:45 PM by Sailor | 3 comments »

Here is a super simple project that I made with some scrap lumber I saved from a remodel job last week. Our garage has been needing some more shelves so I figured these could be put to good use, I was right. I know to a lot of people here this project will seem silly and to easy but I bet someone out there is looking for the very basics. Thanks for watching!

Torque WorkCentre #5: Birds Beak Shelving

10-21-2010 07:54 PM by dustbunny | 16 comments »

About two weeks ago Hopdevil posted a question to the forum about shelving he had seen in the Martha Stewart Magazine. It is called birds beak shelving.Well thank you Hopdevil, a gun went off in my head. This would be the perfect project for the Torque WorkCentre.So off I went to my shop with video camera in hand and shot this remedial video showing how easy this project was to make. It was more difficult to get the camera and my mouth working at the same time so I think it shows how I really...

"Warehouse" Shelving #1: Introduction

08-31-2010 06:17 PM by Trimble | 2 comments »

Hi all… I just thought I’d jump in and start posting a few pictures of my current project. I’m not a seasoned woodworker by ANY means, though I’ve always secretly held a desire to learn woodworking. I live with my wife and son sharing a house with her parents. They were originally supposed to move out and let us take over the house, but when their project to buy a new house became a project to buy some empty land to “someday maybe” build a house on,...

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 ...

Garage Organization By a Newbie #5: Back On Track!

07-01-2010 07:42 PM by CyBorge | 5 comments »

It’s hard to believe how little progress I have made in the last month, but other areas of my life tend to take priority sometimes. The last time I posted, the overwhelming consensus was that I had unwittingly applied moldy drywall compound to my walls. Go me! It sure is a good thing this is a blog, where mistakes are okay, rather than a how-to tutorial! :-) I was lucky in that a lot of the mud was still wet enough that I could pry it off in large sections with a small drywall kni...

Wood Related #1: Updated Lumber Rack Projects !!

03-30-2010 05:49 AM by Michael Hacker | 6 comments »

I have moved.. and moved a considerable amount of WOOD! I have updated my lumber rack projects with new photos of the current racks. My new shop is the entire basement, and to say its bigger than my last basement shop is an understatement. I have four times the space! and at least 88” of height between my floor mats and floor joists! I have repacked the racks and have collected EVEN MORE WOOD! You see my new house was built in 1918, and the basement had a few excellent resource...

005: scrap cutoff shelves #3: still filling them up

03-10-2010 12:53 PM by Gary Fixler | 6 comments »

My new scrap cutoffs shelves are handy for odds and ends, too, like the little roll of brown paper that’s always in my way, rolled-up foam sheeting, some jointed and planed 2×2s I use as straight bars during panel glue-ups, and a few sets of rails for my router bridge setup. You know… all the narrower stuff under 2’ long. I also finally emptied the two boxes of exotic turning blanks (on sale still!) that I got quite a long time ago. It’s very easy to forget...
