Shop Projects #6: finally organized in the chickens storage

08-22-2015 08:03 PM by fiddlebanshee | 0 comments »

I needed badly some shelving to organize the feed and other paraphernalia for the chickens. I also wanted to divide an area in the garage into two parts, one being my weaving studio and the other the afore mentioned storage. I finally got it done, although the areas have not been totally closed off from each other yet. I need my carpenter friend to come and hang a door for me and I could use some extra hands to close off the top portion above the shelves. That will have to wait until weR...

Cheap, easy to make and incredibly strong shelving

08-18-2013 11:53 AM by mhfinefurniture | 5 comments »

Last year I embarked on project that included redoing the storage room in my shop and also building a gambrel style shed on my property. After completing this, I was looking at needing about 120 lineal feet of storage shelving for both. I didn’t want to go with a built in 2×4 constructed shelving unit as they are not adjustable, a pain to build/paint ( I have done it before) and more importantly I can’t take them with me if I ever move. I looked at the local borg and it would have bee...

Future Shop Shelving #1: OK - it's not all wood!

01-06-2013 01:03 PM by curliejones | 0 comments »

I have previously commented on the transition to a new workshop knowing this would be a long, long, process. But with each journey, you must take one step at a time. Last year I built a garden shed/greenhouse as a first step. Mowers, tillers, chainsaw, etc. all have a new home thus clearing the current “shed’s” dropshed. I just began phase two – and this involves closing in about 2/3 of the carport. The motivation to write about it came from the shelving I ...

Critics stink!

07-20-2011 05:30 AM by Transition | 16 comments »

My garage is an old barn. It is partitioned into three sections: 1) a 20’x20’ on the bottom right, 2) a 10’x20’ on the bottom left with stairs to 3)my shop on the second floor. So last night I was building some shelving on the bottom right. When I finished aroung 10pm, I took a 45min break to grab a bite. When I returned, I started filling the shelves. In the room on the left I heard a rustling noise. I peeked through the connecting door and discovered… a s...

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...

organization #1: moving jigs and green wood up higher

02-24-2010 12:26 PM by Gary Fixler | 8 comments »

This is bite-sized post – not really a full post or anything all that interesting, but I wanted to document my ongoing efforts to make a 1-car garage into a world class shop, or whatever is as close to that as possible. I finally drilled some holes in my resawing jig and hung some flanges and pipe nipples to get this thing out from under my feet all the *$#& time. I’ve tripped over this 50x now at least, and it doesn’t matter where I lean it. It’s always somewhe...

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...
