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

11-13-2015 02:11 PM by ChickenChaser | 3 comments »

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:

Getting my tools ready #8: Still here!

04-23-2013 06:15 PM by DocSavage45 | 14 comments »

Haven’t posted in awhile re: my tools and shop. I have made progress and have shared that with a few LJ’s. I have succeeded in getting through my electrical inspection and now have an approved box in the Cau Haus. I ran metal conduit for my 220 single phase cabinet saw. Had some sticks of metal conduit from a project many years ago. Had to do some tricky(for me) bends and twists to get around ceiling joists and the metal gas pipe for the furnace. Of course I screwed it up! ...

I am remodeling the old workshop to turn it into an assembly and finish building. I have a new 12×24 building that will be turned into the main shop. Here is a look at the transition and some discussion on whats to come. I started by removing everything from the shop, then with a little help The walls got furred out, then White pegboard was hung. A great solution for small shops, it gives you the opportunity to use the vertical space

Shop Organization #2: Clamp storage.

11-17-2012 01:20 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

For the pictures, click here. After returning from the Bahamas, I had a long list of projects and ideas that needed some attention. But I discovered that finding other stuff to do first is almost inherent in operating a woodshop. Case in point—-I needed to work on a mirror frame that we had planned to create from trim. Sounds simple enough, just measure and cut the trim and stain and install, right? Well, I decided I wanted to cut the miters by hand. I have a miter saw and a m...

125 - Shop Evolution Update

08-19-2010 11:14 PM by thewoodwhisperer | 26 comments »

Right Click to DownloadRight Click to Download in HDSubscription Options In the past, I’ve discussed how shop improvements are never done. As our needs and tool preferences change, the shop has to be able to adjust accordingly. If not, you will likely be faced with an inefficient and potentially unsafe work environment. If you can believe it, its already been over a year since Nicole and I moved into our new house. And for those that don’t know, we are indeed still carrying ...
