The Simplest Clamp Rack I Could Imagine

04-09-2018 01:18 AM by YesHaveSome | 2 comments »

I had piles of f style clamps laying all across my shop and a couple months ago I decided to figure out the quickest, easiest, and cheapest way to get them on the wall. Here’s what I came up with: View on YouTube

My Mini Split Install

02-18-2018 02:17 PM by YesHaveSome | 6 comments »

It got too cold in my shop this winter to rely on crappy wall/space heaters so I decided to install a Pioneer ductless mini split. I’ve seen lots of posts/questions/comments on here and other boards about mini splits so I figured I’d share my experience. View on YouTube

Table Saw Crosscut Sled

02-15-2018 03:51 AM by wrenchhead | 5 comments »

This is a must have in my shop. This essential table saw accessory will allow me to make accurate repeatable cuts on narrow work pieces and panels. I built a general use sled, fit the runners and square up the fence using the 5 cut method. I learned this method from watching the Wood Whisperer and William Ng build their crosscut sleds. Check out their videos for a more detailed explanation of the fence squaring process. Thanks for watching! https://youtu.be/dIQ4_vhq5NU

Shop Projects, how “Nice” should they be?

02-10-2018 05:56 AM by IantheTinker | 31 comments »

I am building an outfeed table for my table Saw, just a short one to extend over the outboard motor. Then I will hinge a folding table onto the end of the short one. I am doing this to save on dedicated space while allowing options for assembling s9me larger upcoming projects. My only issue is that I keep gett8ng hung up on how nice these things need to look. I see the guys on the YouTubes making these really nice outfeed table with melamine surfaces and oak trim and whatnot. I am on a seriou...

My Simple Drill Press Table

01-22-2018 03:05 AM by YesHaveSome | 6 comments »

Since the day I got my drill press I knew I was going to end up building a table for it. Obviously, there are a lot of options out there for how to go about it but I wanted something simple for my first go round. It’s not huge, just 24×14 but it has an adjustable fence with stop block and replaceable zero clearance inserts. The best part was that I built it completely from scraps and hardware I had lying around. The only hiccup along the way was realizing that the crank didn&...

My Mobile Assembly/Outfeed Table and First Video

01-15-2018 04:11 AM by YesHaveSome | 2 comments »

I had always wanted to get into woodworking and video. For woodworking, space/time/money was always the big roadblocks for me. For video, I didnt really know have anything I wanted to shoot. When I got into woodworking in the beginning of 2017 I figured the two paired nicely. I’ve been in the website/digital industry for the past 10 years and also have a background as a CAD jockey. Woodworking, plans, video and website all seem to go together quite nicely so I figured I’d start a ...

Shop Projects #2: Table Saw Miter Sled

10-20-2017 05:42 PM by BrettGoodermote | 2 comments »

After having made my 1st table saw sled, I knew I had to have a miter sled as well. A few weeks ago I really found myself at a loss when I needed to make some accurate 45-degree angles for the clock I was making for my wife. I had previously watched a number of videos on this subject and found a method that looked like it would suit my needs and available materials. Here is a pretty good picture of the sled I cannot tell you just how happy I am with this sled! if you take a few ...

Shop Projects #1: Air Filter

10-02-2017 01:15 PM by BrettGoodermote | 2 comments »

One of the downsides to a small attic shop is the crazy amount of dust in the air. I have some windows I can open while it is nice out, but even that only has a limited effect. After browsing the internet I decided it was time to make an air cleaner. I did not want to make a major investment in a fan, and the typical box fan was just not powerful enough in my opinion. We use a Lasko Wind machine in the living room and bedroom and these fans are GREAT!! I happened to catch an end of the sea...

Shop air cleaner #1: The build

10-15-2016 07:42 AM by JSOvens | 5 comments »

A popular home-built shop accessory these days is a filtered shop air cleaner, of which I’ve had the privilege to see several designs. Whether floor standing or ceiling mounted, or using box fans or centrifugal blowers, they all have some things in common: they are fairly simple and inexpensive to build. My workshop is located in a tandem two-car garage, in rainy Vancouver, BC, Canada, thus it is not always feasible to leave my garage door open for long lengths of time (woodworking i...

Shop Projects #1: Copy of Jay Bates Conduit Lumber Rack

09-12-2016 07:23 PM by Rob_s | 2 comments »

I saw this idea on Jay's page first, and have seen versions of it as well. I’m extremely happy with the results, and planning even to add some more to the adjacent wall with maybe 2 pipes at the highest elevation only, and small, single pipe, segments running over the window. I also need to find some kind of caps, plastic hopefully, for the lowest racks just for some added safety. I decided to make one with my own twist(s) which include:1) mine is attached to a CMU wall instead of ...
