French Cleat Square & Measuring Tool Storage

10-18-2014 10:39 PM by iamcliff | 5 comments »

All of my measuring and squaring tools were spread out throughout the shop. I wanted them all in one place, so I made this. Watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-IOwoCwpg54

New Shop - from the ground , up. #7: Progress! Time to move a few tools!

10-07-2014 03:02 AM by curliejones | 3 comments »

It’s been some time since I last chronicled the shop progress and I’m looking forward to moving in, albeit slowly. I painted the inside, built a porch, and wired the building. I must pay attention to a few things that I’ve ignored over the last several months while shop building, and then run underground power to the new space. I’ve had ample temporary power, using the 30A 120V underground wiring that supplied the old shed, it will be sooo nice not to deal ...

French Cleat Screw Storage / Screw Caddy

10-04-2014 12:14 PM by iamcliff | 1 comment »

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...

Video: French Cleat Blade Storage Rack

02-16-2014 02:12 PM by JSB | 9 comments »

Hello everyone. After another productive Saturday in the shop I came up with this French cleat saw blade storage option. It can be modified to your dimensions and needs as always. It features two rows of blade storage with 6 partitions each. The dividers can be removed for larger blades such as 1/2” or 3/4” bandsaw blades. You could even reduce the spacing on one of them for more table saw blades. For added storage options on the outside you could use dowels, screws, or nails. ...

Workshop Organization #2: The Workbench

01-25-2014 07:31 PM by DBuonomano | 2 comments »

So the first phase of my workshop reorganization/upgrade had to be my workbench. In my first entry I mentioned that my current “workbench” was actually two metal framed shelving units which stand 3’ tall and have a plywood top. When I bought my home in 2011 this shelving unit was already in the garage half loaded up with old paint, left over tile and a few extra trim boards for the kitchen cabinets. At the time, I didn’t have the setup or time available to start bui...

This is just a quick video to say thanks to fellow woodworker Jay Bates. Check out his video to see how he made some simple and inexpensive brackets that can be used for shelving or lumber storage. Thanks for watching. Take care.

30 projects in 30 days #24: a look back at the first 27 days

11-29-2012 02:35 AM by scottb | 7 comments »

Okay, so I’ve been good about the projects challenge, just bad about the posting.  27 days in, 1 project left to do… maybe I’ll wait until Friday night for some last minute, down to the wire drama! Here’s a quick look at much of what has been going on in, and outside of the shop. Quite the mix of big and small. I wish I was able to do more “want to” than “have to” but I’m also VERY happy to have cleared a lot of those projects off the p...

30 projects in 30 days #22: days 4-7

11-11-2012 03:37 PM by scottb | 0 comments »

Part of the problem, or challenge, of getting a project done every day (or doing anything in the shop ever) is the dance. The hop, skip and jump of winding your way around all the offcuts, jigs, scrap that too nice to trash, and trash that just doesn’t get out the door. So, in my quest to move forward to having actual floor space, and plenty of covered storage for tools and materials, I’ve stepped away from the lathe, took some plywood and got started on some BIG storage boxes....

New shop storage

07-25-2012 03:46 PM by TheBoxStoreCraftsman | 2 comments »

I recently had an opportunity to take advantage of what I thought could be an improved storage unit in the shop. A local office was upgrading their lateral filing cabinets and I had a chance at the used ones (all I had to do was pick them up). I thought it would be a good idea, since the cabinets are designed to hold a lot of weight and would provide some dust protection. after a month of use, I really like them and it frees up some of my drawer space under my benches!

Make a simple shop cabinet

02-10-2012 10:29 PM by Stevinmarin | 17 comments »

I needed a place to store really small cut-offs. That, and a place for my shop TV.
