• Mystery Cabinet #4: I Love Dovetails -

02-18-2018 12:43 AM by Ron Aylor | 7 comments »

I Love Dovetails –  Being quite productive yesterday, getting the parts roughed out and the sides shaped, I was going to give this cabinet a rest until I got back from Alaska, but …  … it didn’t take to long to pack and besides the plane doesn’t take-off until tomorrow afternoon … so, I thought perhaps I’d take some time and cut a dovetail or two …  Two led to four, four led to twenty … once all the tails were cut, and I squared things up with the help of a squar...

• Mystery Cabinet #3: And So It Begins

02-17-2018 12:25 AM by Ron Aylor | 5 comments »

And So It Begins -  It was a veritable heatwave in Lilburn today … 75°! I took advantage of the wonderful weather and started roughing out some cabinet parts. I managed to cut and shape the sides …  … and get the horizontals cut. I got a bit carried away with the coping saw …                … but nothing a good filing won’t fix! I was also able to get the dovetails marked.  Before cutting the dovetails, I took the time to dismantle the old racks and pegs.                 Well, I made a ...

• Mystery Cabinet #2: Considerations and Design

02-16-2018 02:32 PM by Ron Aylor | 11 comments »

Considerations and Design –  I want this cabinet to house my molding planes, jack plane, and various pieces of hardware. Currently, I have cans of stain and assorted chemicals all over the shop. I thought this cabinet might be a good way to corral all of these cans onto its top.  But first I need to think about some dimensions. I have 22-1/2” between rafters …  … and 36” from the top of my sharpening station to the wall plate. So my cabinet will have to fit within those dimensions...

• Mystery Cabinet #1: The Problem

02-15-2018 03:20 PM by Ron Aylor | 16 comments »

The Problem – In my first shop lay-out, I had my bench positioned along a wall under a small window. I had my tool chest at the end of the bench, and pegs and racks for various tools on the wall above, all within easy reach. This was a great set-up for a number of years.  As time went on, I decided to move the bench to the middle of the shop for 360° access, and build a tool wall in the corner …   … this left the original pegs and racks, now cluttered with all sorts of things,...

Shop storage projects #1: Overview

01-01-2017 09:30 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Ok, not much for a picture today,maybe later on. Need to move and remove a few things in the shop. Can’t do a whole lot over by the Lathe bench. Too much other junk in place. However.. I can empty out, and clean up Tool Chest #1, and have it taken upstairs as a Hope Chest. I can remove a couple power tools from one spot, place them where the plane til is. Then place the power tools where the til used to be. I may have enough room to move the brace til over beside the pla...

First Order Toolcart #1: The inspiration and the plan

01-17-2016 03:20 PM by CJC716 | 3 comments »

After working with pegboard walls for 6 months I have grown to despise the functionality of it. I often do most of my work on the assembly table or my small bench and find that my tools never quite make it up to the peg board and when they do they seem to immediately need to be used again. As a fan of the TESTED – Adam Savage podcast I came across his concept of using tool carts to get tools out of drawers and into a state of first order retrievability. This is a method I often use a...

Getting into the YouTube game

12-29-2014 05:10 PM by BenhamDesign | 6 comments »

It seems that everybody has a YouTube channel. Well I decided to get into the game myself. My mother bought me a GoPro camera for Christmas. I`m sure she is hoping I will shoot some video of her grand kids for her. Which of course I will, but trying to keep up with a 7 and 10 year old is a lot of work, so I decided to take it into the shop and try my hand at shooting some woodworking videos. This 1st video is a fairly simple build so I could figure out how to work the camera into my wo...

Easy Build Workshop Stool.

07-21-2014 08:57 PM by David White | 5 comments »

NOTE: A PDF version of this post and the Sketchup model are available in the downloads section of my blog. If you’re planning to build this stool, I suggest you get them as the images herein are of pretty poor resolution. My time in the shop is pretty limited and building shop furniture is not something I particularly enjoy (I’m more of a fine furniture kinda guy), so when I do feel the need to make something for use in the workshop I like it to be simple, sturdy and quick to build....
