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 ...

Video: French Cleat Drill Charging Station

02-25-2014 02:15 PM by JSB | 5 comments »

Hello everyone. Here’s my latest and hopefully last for a little while addition to my French cleat wall. I may do something else for the wall in the future but I doubt it will be a video. This was a useful project that anyone can benefit from. Have more drills? Make it wider. Customize it the way you want. For those who are interested here is a link to the video:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kkiqzUPB9LQ And here is a link to the plans:http://jayscustomcreations.com/?p=4323

New Crosscut Sled

12-10-2012 09:18 AM by MrWhite | 11 comments »

After reading a few articles and watching a few videos that had one, I decided to build a crosscut sled for my table saw. I looked at a bunch of designs but eventually came up with my own. Here’s what I built: I used ¾” birch ply for the base, doug fir for the front and back rails, and red oak for the sled runners. I found a 2×8x20’ at the local hardware place that had some very nice tight grain. Most construction lumber has really wide growth rings but this one board, out o...

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 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

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...

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 ...
