Shop Thoughts

04-02-2018 08:55 PM by IantheTinker | 4 comments »

Recently I have not been spending as much time in my shop as I used to. I have no great reason for this other than I had already finished my box for the 2018 Boxswap and I hadn’t gotten around to starting a project that I find a tad bit intimidating (mostly because I attempted the project once before and botched it a good bit). However, I began the project the other day and have found success thus far, so I am feeling good. I am also wanting to try a project I found in the Small Shop magaz...

Simple Solution !

11-16-2012 06:18 PM by woodshaver Tony C | 10 comments »

I was looking for a place to store my 3 plastic Feather boards. I though how I nice it would be to have another wall to hang a few more things on. That’s when it hit me! It’s been there all along! My garage door! I had some left over T-Track laying around so I cut it into 2 1/2” lengths drilled a two holes in each of the 3 peices and screwed it to the garage door support. Then just attached the my 3 Feather boards to the track! I seem to be always looking for a better p...

Dave's Workshop #1: Finally a Space of My Own

08-29-2012 10:01 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

We finally got our basement a bit more organized and painted, thus giving me a space that I can actually call a workshop. The two photos below show the area I’m working in. The oil tank is a feature because I can put drawings or notes on it with magnets. They don’t blow away of get lost as fast. The workbench is one of the first things I knocked together after we bought the house. Someday I’ll probably rework it with better legs and lower it a few inches. ...

My Workshop #1: New Space for Workshop

04-14-2012 12:41 PM by steliart | 9 comments »

After a long period of searching I’ve been able to find a space to rent. It’s a bit big (170m2 or about 1830 square feet) for my needs but it will do more than fine. The price was logical and I team up with a friend woodworker to share the space and rent. We will be moving in May 2012 and there is so much work to be done here. Don’t have a clue how long it will take to make as I have planed it, but I believe it will keep me busy for a long time. Here are some photos and the workshop pla...

Work(shop) in Progress #10: Reorganizing Single Car Garage I - The plan.

08-25-2010 04:37 AM by PurpLev | 20 comments »

Lately, everytime I go to the garage whether it be to get something, or work on something I tend to always come back with bruised/scratched shins. The garage is a somewhat of a mine field. It never really started as a workshop, so tools and machines just accumulated as they came with no order or planning and each one made it more and more stuffy and cramped. My wife just asked me ‘why don’t you take everything out and reorganize the place’.... hmm.. that means spending...

The Shop #1: Space

04-25-2009 08:55 AM by amat55 | 13 comments »

Well there have been times when the man of the house needs to have some space of his own, Could this space be the den or maybe some unused corner some where in the house I think not its the garage for you. The garage now has a new name its “the shop” out with the garden tool out with the bag of old cloths, the shop has a new purpose to build a shed for those garden tools and maybe make it big enough for that bag of old cloths. Yes that what the shop does it hold our beloved toys ...

random #2: Just realized exactly how tiny my shop is :(

02-26-2009 02:08 PM by Gary Fixler | 4 comments »

I finally ran the numbers. My shop is a 1-car rental garage in cramped, suburban LA. Making things extra strange is that there is a 6’ tall cinder block wall running down one side of the property that terminates right at the corner of my garage. It actually buts into it, overlapping the wall by the width of the cinder blocks. The fence around the back of the property passes about 4’ behind the garage, giving me a little tree-covered (Hollywood Junipers and Ficus benjamina) area I ...

Work(shop) in Progress #2: Workbench: The TOP

06-18-2008 03:00 AM by PurpLev | 7 comments »

72”x24” 1-3/4” thick Top = $25Groz vise = $40Misc fasteners and hardware = $10Building your own workbench that actually fits in a tight space that has no space for a workbench = PRICELESS Now I just need to use scrap wood, and design legs to hold the workbench horizontally… I made it extra tall, cause every other bench I work on I get back pains from having to bend too much. In the mean time, I just improvise and put something under to hold it straight just so that I can work on it ...
