Sandpaper Storage Rack

02-17-2015 05:13 PM by GlassImpressions | 3 comments »

I filmed the build on my YouTube Channel. Please check it out! Please like, share, and if you enjoyed the video subscribe! http://youtu.be/KIjZJoHwwB4 My solution to storing my sandpaper was not ideal. As you can see in the pictures, the paper has curled from the previous storage method. I make a simple tray style rack to store each grit of paper separately. Materials: MDF, Hardboard, Glue, Label Maker Construction Methods: Rabbits, and grooves, glue. I filmed the build on my YouT...

Hints and Tips #5: A 'Quick' Way to Store Nails, Screws, Etc.

02-05-2015 04:26 PM by Dave Rutan | 6 comments »

I’m always trying to figure out how to use the many things we throw out in our day to day lives. In no way can I be considered a fanatic about this, but I try to consider any containers we put out for recycling. I use our Nestle Quick canisters to store the standard screws and finish nails in my shop. They are a good size, they are sturdy plastic and they are oblong, which allows the smaller of the two available sizes to be carried in a normal cloth nail apron! Originally the ...

Another 52 Weeks #2: Shows, Cleaning, and what is to come.

01-04-2015 10:42 PM by clieb91 | 4 comments »

Greetings all well as promised last week here I go again. Another year of blogging about time in the shop and other wood related items. My daughter is now 8 and still spends time with me in the shop and is looking forward to being a part of this as well. In the meantime though lets get started. I attended the Woodworking Show this weekend in Baltimore, a few good seminars, some great shopping and even better time hanging out with LumberJocks and plenty of other woodworkers. Besides some new k...

The Shop Environment and How It Affects Our Mood While Working

12-24-2014 05:19 PM by TheWoodenOyster | 6 comments »

I recently have moved to a temporary shop because my wife and I are between houses at the moment, living in an apartment. Moving to a new shop really gave me the chance to compare two very different shop spaces and how they function, as well as how I feel when I am working in them. I have come upon some interesting findings and would like to share them with y’all and see if you agree or disagree and if you have anything you would like to add. As a disclaimer, I was in no way educated in...

Path To A New Workshop #1: The Intro/Situation

12-15-2014 12:09 AM by Vactet | 2 comments »

Hi folks.Well first post here. Found out about this site from Pintrest pins leading to it and found it extremely helpful. Figured I’d chronicle my not-so-little project here via these blogs. So here we go. [WARNING: This entry is going to be highly text heavy] Short history lesson first. Started my own business in June of this year (2014). Was currently living in a house that I was renting for various reasons but had every intent of buying a house shortly. Prior to that lived in a Co...

Tales of a Hack #3: Shop status -- Full.

12-11-2014 10:59 PM by ajw1978 | 7 comments »

I’ll post some introductory reviews in the next couple days, but for now, just wanted to “show off” the latest additions to my “workshop” (a term I still use in the loosest possible sense as I’m still a Downtown-dweller with but a large patio from which to work). Last weekend, I jumped on a HD deal of the day that offered an 18V Ridgid drill/driver and impact driver kit, along with two batteries for $149. After placing the order, though, I saw the 12V Ri...

In the wood shop today #34: Fine woodworking - build your own chair day 3 progress

12-11-2014 12:14 PM by Canadian Woodworks | 4 comments »

Follow along as I walk through the wood shop during my 1 on 1 build your own rocking chair course. This is Day 3 of the 10 day course I offer. We’ve started work on each part of the chair from bent lamination for the back supports, coving the arms, carving the seat and of course the famous Maloof joinery. Also I take a look at a few pieces I’ve built in the past, some beautiful chairs and sculpted music stands.

The "Shed" #3: Inner Framing and Insulation Thoughts

11-11-2014 06:49 AM by Ty Sullivan | 4 comments »

This last weekend did not yield an overly fruitful progression on the microshop as the house soaked up most of my attention. I was able to start a portion of the inner framing to prep the walls for insulation and electrical placements. These types of sheds have LARGE frame centers but they’re still set on a 16” center around the perimeter. So, it is just a matter of filling in the missing sections and tying everything together. As you can tell nothing too complicated about it ...

The "Shed" #2: Dirtwork....augh.

10-26-2014 04:39 AM by Ty Sullivan | 0 comments »

After a few weeks of essentially doing nothing but research (including bugging my master electrician father inlaw) about how to NOT metaphorically shoot myself in the foot I finally broke ground on the electrical supply to the new shed. Graciously my father offered his tiller and his own back to help me get the trench dug and the 40 feet of main line put into it’s permanent location in just under four hours…no idea how long it would have taken without the now 24 year old tiller t...
