From cluttered garage to organized (hopefully) wood shop!! #2: Progress!

05-23-2016 03:02 PM by PeterDominic1983 | 0 comments »

So got these fancy new 4’ LED lights to replace the ancient 8’ tube/ballast lights… theyre SUPER bright, so for now theyre upside down! Thinking I might make a plexi diffuser or something in the future… Anyway, starting to get things cleaned up a bit. Throwing away TONS of stuff.. there is really only a few categories of items: keepers (to keep in garage, or some other area of the house), sell/donate (ebay, craigslist, verage, something like that), and trash! A...

Rediscovering Woodworking #3: More Hybrid than Power Journey

05-18-2016 12:13 AM by Tim Royal | 0 comments »

It was suggested in the comments on my first blog 2 years ago that I seek a more hand tool direction because of almost non-existent space to work. I AM a hybrid woodworker and love handtools, but have found that it is actually more and not less expensive to be completely hand tool oriented, primarily because larger projects using rough lumber are so labor and mainly space intensive as to be impractical when you are essentially forced to do most of your work outside in nice weather. What do yo...

Shop Bench

05-09-2016 02:37 AM by WoodywoodpeckerMike | 9 comments »

This is my Garage Shop Bench project that is taking on a life of its own…growing and evolving…. Check out the video n pics… The build went rather smoothly…only hit my hand with the hammer 3 or 4 times…but I got in some left hand hammering so it was pretty good. The bench came out sturdy, level and even with the existing bench it aimed to mimmic. I am having trouble adding a video…will update when synced…

This isn’t exactly woodworking, but thought it was a cool idea you could use on your shop doors.

Hermit House Woodworking - Starting from Scratch #11: Some Much Needed Shop Improvements

04-14-2016 08:41 AM by Ted Ewen | 6 comments »

Lights, Power Points and a Dedicated Circuit. One thing about living in Scandinavia: Winter days are short and dark. The previous owners were, apparently, bats because there is very little lighting anywhere in the house. While the new shop space has great windows, they do not do a lot to illuminate the shop if there is no sunlight. Even when there is, it’s not exactly the best lighting for doing detailed work and measurement. I was using a light intended for video recording to h...

Workshop #7: All day in the shop! Slat Wall Tool Boards

03-26-2016 10:55 PM by Matt | 2 comments »

This whole “I’m building a workshop and I’m building it NOW!” thing came out of starting a project (to build a 4×5 view camera) and getting VERY frustrated at not being able to locate my tools. Nothing has a place where it belongs. Nothing is organized. Well, that’s about to change! Today I built two tool boards. One 3’x8’ which is located where the workbench will go once it is built. The second is a smaller 3’x4’ tool board...

Shop Remodel Project #2: Roof Framing

03-25-2016 10:14 AM by cdbridge39 | 6 comments »

Well, I got my ceiling joists and rafters up now (4/12 pitch). Didn’t go with trusses because I wanted to do everything myself. The rafters are 2×6 and on two foot centers. The strips for the metal roof are going to be 2×4’s. The height of the ceiling is 10 foot and the outside measures 24×24. I just washed the walls to get ready for painting. I’m leaving the rafter tails exposed and painting them.

Shop Remodel Project #1: My New Shop

03-23-2016 10:51 AM by cdbridge39 | 7 comments »

I moved here about six years ago and turned the my carport into a shop but I need more room now. There is a block building (24×24) on my property but years before a tree fell though the roof. Nobody repaired it so it sat for years in the elements. It was also over run with vines and it had trash in it. I decided to burn the inside old wood and trash so I could clean it out. Then I repaired the damaged block around the top and poured concrete in the block for strength. This is going to b...

Workshop #1: Conception

03-15-2016 11:01 PM by Matt | 0 comments »

So, I have been working for years out of my garage and whenever I want to do something “real” I run into the problem I don’t have anything “set up”. Nothing has a place. There is no workflow. During my latest project (I’m building a view camera and a pinhole camera) I became so frustrate I stopped and decided to take over our small garage bay that was serving as our shed. I had it with working without organization and without dust collection. So, I...

Workshop construction from dream to reality. #1: conception...

02-24-2016 12:09 AM by DalyArcher | 1 comment »

Well, after much debate and discussion it appears as though I am finally on my way to having a real live workshop all my own! My wife and I bought our current home with the idea of flipping it and buying something else with a large yard and shop. Take a couple years, add a little one to the mix and plans change. Our location is great, walking distance to schools and stores and work. We had considered selling and looking for something else, but we bought at a great time and the property ...
