"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...

005: scrap cutoff shelves #2: and now there are two

02-25-2010 01:33 PM by Gary Fixler | 14 comments »

All the pieces for both units were cut out at the same time, so there was another waiting to be assembled. I spent some time today on that. Here it is next to the first one, waiting to be filled up: I’ll have to find a new place to hang my roller stand, but that’s okay, as I’ve only been able to hang one of the two here on its over-the-rafters hooks. Right now it’s immediately in front of the new shelving: I learned something interesting about French clea...

Bedroom Closet #3: Shelves Installed

02-11-2010 06:45 AM by Broooklyn | 3 comments »

The puppies are now installed with metal L brackets. L brackets were not the look at I was going for but I figured they give good support without having to block off the left side of the shelves with a support beam. If I had a router, I may have attempted to inset the L bracket into the bottom of the shelf but for now, this newbie is happy enough. Anybody ever veneer an L bracket? :) Not the most artistic project but fun nonetheless. p.s. That’s an IKEA sliding door that I hacked ...

Bedroom Closet #2: The Shelves: Cut and Stained

02-11-2010 01:39 AM by Broooklyn | 1 comment »

So, in response to my previous post – I’m only working on the right side of the closet design and I only have 6 shelves at the moment instead of 7. The wood I ended up getting was “Whitewood” which seems to be some kind of spruce or pine. It’s pretty light and soft. I got it because it was pretty cheap and the width was perfect so I didn’t have to do any ripping. I did end up getting a circular saw but there was a massive snow storm so I had to work indo...
