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 ...
Keeping your chisels organized can be difficult when your are constantly changing projects. Putting them away sometimes is the last thing I think about. I built this chisel rack to make it easy to pull chisels out, keep them organized, and when I’m done I just hanging the whole rack back up.

With a reader’s tip for a Woodsmith magazine issue, I made myself a simple saw till. I mounted the till on my pegboard wall. This way my hand saws, including my Wood River dovetail and cross-cut hand saws, have easy access in my woodshop. I noticed I could also place here several of my combination squares.
Make some storage for your router bits that keeps everything together and is portable! Check out the video on YouTube here.
I sold my old lumber storage solution which was… inelegant, to put it lightly. I am purposely storing this set of lumber outside, half because I ran out of room in my indoor storage, but also to have a bit of weathered wood handy, should the need arise. I went simple with this, using some pallet runners, I bored some holes at a slight angle ever so slightly undersized for the conduit pieces I had prepared as shelf supports. I then attached the wood brackets to the wall and hammered in...
My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1730: #1730 A Box Filled With "Possibilities"
What is better than a beautifully crafted, furniture quality box?Why a beautifully crafted, furniture quality box filled with supplies, of course! Yesterday, I showed you the lovely box that I snagged on the Derwent site last weekend. For the price (about $140 CDN or $115 USD SHIPPED from England) I was thrilled with the quality and workmanship that Derwent used to build it. But let's face it – the reason that I ordered it in the first place was to use it for storing my odds an...
As an artist, I love getting new supplies. Besides loving to work in so many different types of media, being active on the internet and participating in classes and online forums exposes me to many, many different new and exciting products. It really keeps my creative juices flowing and I love trying new techniques and products. It is a wonderful part of what I do. Many of you know that I live in a very small place. Keith and I have lived in a one bedroom apartment for over seven years n...
Thanks to everyone for sticking with me to the end. In this video I cover all the little things that have to happen before I can finish, as well as the finishing process itself. The bench turned out better than expected and my customer was elated. As always, keep the conversation going below. Thanks for watching!

No voiceover today. I needed just under 18” to make the top, so I opted to make the panel out of 3 – 6” wide boards. I chose 6” because that is pretty much the maximum capacity of my jointer. I got to use my biscuit joiner for the first time on this project. I got it for a steal on clearance last year and have been waiting to use it ever since. Once I got it dialed in, it was pretty easy to use. The joints lined up perfectly with the biscuits aiding in the alignm...
With the workbench complete, it’s time to make some kind of storage system for the hand tools I’ll be using on the bench. I’ve amassed a small collection of older Stanley planes, a couple of LN block planes, a few chisels of different varieties and various other tools that I’d like to have readily accessible from the bench. I’ve chosen to make a stand that will sit next to the bench. The design is still not solidified, but I did start on the section dedicated ...
