Time to make some changes to the shop. #15: Demolition is over... now to organize the tools.

02-04-2017 04:16 PM by AngieO | 9 comments »

The demolition part is over. Now it’s time to set up my tools better. The flow was just not working for me. Every time I needed to use my table saw I had to pull it out. It’s on wheels… but it’s one of those stands that come with it. Works.. but more awkward than anything. But with it pulled out and the saw horses out… it created a small path in between and it was such a hassle. I don’t even remember where. I think on a Youtube video… someone menti...

Time to make some changes to the shop. #14: Where I was... Some changes... and a little demolition.

02-01-2017 08:53 PM by AngieO | 13 comments »

Well… back in September of 2013 I started this blog about making changes to my shop. There have been so many changes. It’s hard to believe. After feeling really discouraged I spent this past weekend making more changes. I mean…. we got up that morning and I said… “hey… we are going to do this!”. My poor children had no warning. So let’s look back for a second. Here was my “Shop” back in 2012. Yeah…. you are probably s...

Shop Upgrades #13: More reorganinzation

02-11-2016 11:53 PM by bkseitz | 2 comments »

Band Saw and Lath area coming together nicely. Still have more track wall to install and some overhead shelves. Temporarily moved all the sanders next to biscuit and dowel cutting tools while I brainstorm the sanding/downdraft table I’ll be building this summer. Hand tool workbench cleaning up nice, but think I’ll be moving chisels and planes to under homemade workbench with twin screw tail vice. Chemicals and safety equipment cabinets have stayed in plac...

Work Shop Organization #1: The begining

My Shop is just in the utility room of my house. As you walk in through a narrow hallway it open up to this. I have a little rack I’ve built for my axes, and adze, and acouple of digging tools there. As well as a planner, and a Jointer that we given to me. my buddy got some new ones and he just wanted them out of his shop. Free tools!!!! They are a lot faster then hewing and planing by hand. though I do enjoy hand tool work, I find myself waiting for a time I can use machines to make ...

French Cleat Screw Storage / Screw Caddy

10-04-2014 12:14 PM by Chris McDowell | 2 comments »

As to be expected, do enough woodworking and you will need various sizes of screws for all the different projects you work on. Then you end up with extra boxes of screws. I had all of mine just stacked together in a small bin. The bin was overflowing and it was just a pain to find a place to store the bin. It constantly got moved around. So, I made a small shelving unit to hold all the different screw boxes. It’s based on one I saw April Wilkerson make. You can see a link to her vide...

French Cleat Hooks - Repurpose Project

09-27-2014 12:37 PM by Chris McDowell | 3 comments »

We’ve had this old coat/key rack hanging in our garage collecting dust and whatever else didn’t have a spot. It’s basically falling apart. I also needed a dedicated spot to hang my shop apron. So, while deciding what to do, I noticed the old coat rack and came up with this. Watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2VOvrG4Qz2w
