Rediscovering my old hobby #1: Making old tools usable with no space!!

10-20-2014 01:29 PM by revrok | 0 comments »

I live in the urban San Francisco Bay Area in the smaller city of San Leandro between Oakland and Hayward in the East Bay. That means I have some advantages and some disadvantages when it comes to woodworking. The main advantage is the availability of free wood (hardwood pallets are everywhere and broken furniture on craigslist and curbsides) and good prices on old used tools. The main disadvantage for me is the cost of housing. Because of that I rent a two bedroom duplex with very little usa...

Time to make some changes to the shop. #10: Shop storage solutions for dead space.

10-16-2014 11:44 PM by AngieO | 11 comments »

I’ve been making some changes to my workshop. I have this dead space behind my entry door into my shop. Usually it ends up collecting boards… the kind that fall on you when you enter the shop. LOL! So over the weekend I decided to do two things… use up some of the wood I’ve been “collecting” and to clean up the shop. This was the area that my focus went to as I walked in the shop and as I closed the door a board fell and almost hit me. Oops! :) Sometime last year I ...

Mini hand tool cabinet #1: Scope and planning

08-30-2014 07:26 AM by JSOvens | 3 comments »

Hello folks, I’m starting a new project which should hopefully not take too much time. I’m on the finishing stages of my Ph. D. thesis and have been relying a bit more heavily on shop time to relieve my frustration, so the goal of this project is also partly to give me something relatively simple to do that I can spend 1/2 – 1 hour on at a time when I just need to get away from this accursed writing chair. I don’t know if there’s sort of a rule of thumb as ...

Pecky cypress goodness #1: Shop cabinet build

06-03-2014 03:33 AM by TheFridge | 2 comments »

I needed some shop storage and I wanted to use some pecky cypress I was given. So I figured drawer fronts of pecky cypress would be an awesome start. So I started by getting some free plywood after some old cabinets were demo’d on a job I was on. I would’ve preferred European style cabinets but didn’t think about it until after I milled and assembled the face frame. Here is the carcass from reclaimed wood. Cabinet set in place with face frame attached. Yes, I used a kre...

How to Make a Woodworking Hand Tool Storage Board

06-02-2014 07:36 PM by WoodAndShop | 0 comments »

By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at WoodAndShop.com) In my above video I show the woodworking “hand tool storage board” & shelf that I just designed and built to store & display some of my most used hand tools, including my chisels, marking gauges, back saws, try squares, dividers, and molding planes. In addition to using scrap to build this simple storage board (which hangs on wall studs) I built a shelf for my molding planes using simple 2×10 pine boards. The mo...

Rolling Storage Cart #4: All finished

05-09-2014 05:26 AM by lycilph | 0 comments »

Well, there wasn’t much left to do. I’ve added false fronts to the drawers and a simple pull. I have rather large hands so I don’t like the standard drawer handles that you can get. I made some from some scrap wood I had lying around, and they seem to work pretty well, plus they contrast pretty nicely. The drawers are pretty square, but once you put the false fronts to them they are snug on one side and there is a gap on the other side. You can’t really tell fro...
