Garage Overhead Cabinets #4: Whew -- finally, more sawdust!

1827 days ago by MyOldGarage | 1 comment »

Well, Peggy and I finally were able to get a weekend time slot free with good weather to get outside and cut-up the plywood for the garage cabinets. I must admit, that I must have completely been out of my mind when I measured the side pieces. Peggy was looking at them and said they looked a bit tall . . . so I held them up above my workbench and was flabbergasted at the discrepancy. All my plans in Sketchup seemed to just have went out the window. Then when we were talking we realiz...

Tool thoughts #15: Drywall storage rack

1845 days ago by NedB | 3 comments »

I picked up several sheets of drywall, plus some cement board and even some pegboard in the past year or so… all for very little money ($20 total), and no immediate plans to use it… It has been cluttering up one corner of my shop. Today I decided that I would do something about that. I”ve got my newfangled workbench to complete, and that is going to need a spot in the shop before I can assemble it, Well, here’s what I did to get rid of the clutter: I cut the 2x mate...

Garage Overhead Cabinets #3: Bought Wood -- Where Can I Buy Time?

1868 days ago by MyOldGarage | 1 comment »

(Found at http://www.laughingcoyotewoodworks.com/snoozebutton.html) So last weekend we were forecasted to get a big snowstorm here in KC, and this time the forecasters really did know what they were talking about. I anticipated this and went out for a couple of sheets of 3/4 Baltic Birch plywood and two 8 foot 1×8’s. I figured that would give me the materials to keep working through the weekend, because I wouldn’t want my 2wd Dakota out and about in the snow. I got ...

Garage Overhead Cabinets #1: Planning Makes Perfect?

1875 days ago by MyOldGarage | 8 comments »

Ok—as I learned on the garbage can holder, I think I need a bit more planning on my next project. I’ve in the past at least drawn out some sketches and worked from that . . . which is what I did to a certain degree on the trash holder but I didn’t flesh out all the details until I was in (over my head) on the project. Norm Abram I’m not. So on to the next thing which will be some overhead cabinets for in the garage. I’ve always wanted something above the wo...

Lumber #2: Shorts, and a T

1892 days ago by PurpLev | 18 comments »

I’ve got the shorts sorted out, but still don’t have a T ruler… one step at a time. So I took the table saw, shop vac, outfeed roller, and everything else that was in the way out of the garage and started organizing the stack of shorts I got. to the ordinary person passing by, I might have looked like a psycho – cleaning board by board with compressed air to clean the wood – from the wood dust on it (these all came from a manufacturing shop and were covered...

Lumber #1: There can never be too much

1895 days ago by PurpLev | 10 comments »

It seems like everytime someone says that he has “extra” lumber, or “more than enough” people jump to say that there can never be too much, as someone said: “there is no such thing is just enough, and too much is just right”. I came upon a shop that closed, and they were getting rid of their overstock lumber. I got too late for the 5/4 10’ pieces, but I did manage to get all their short stock (cut offs, leftovers): It’s mostly Mahogany, Ch...

Garage Re-Do #5: DOH! Adding more clutter?

1900 days ago by MyOldGarage | 7 comments »

Yea . . . something new followed me home the other day: And it had this big box of stuff with it . . . And inside the box . . . It was like Christmas time . . . digging into the presents: And as an added bonus . . . the jointer: I’d say I did pretty good. My dad looked at some of the stuff and I have several hundred dollars worth of stuff just in blades/arbors. Some of the things were brand new (like a tendon jig) and many were unopened. The box o...

Garage Re-Do #4: Creating a Plan

1903 days ago by MyOldGarage | 5 comments »

So I have the dimensions of everything in the garage area, so rather than moving things multiple times in RL (real life) I’m going to create a model of the garage space and what I have in there now and see what would work and what wouldn’t work. One of my concerns is to segment the garage a bit better for metal working versus wood working. The welder/air compressor/etc.. should be in the far back left corner nearest to the fuse panel, because I have a dedicated plug right there...

Garage Re-Do #3: Getting The Facts

1904 days ago by MyOldGarage | 3 comments »

Ok, so I have to know where I’m starting out from and what I have so I did a little inventory last night. Below is the items I have in the garage. Wow . . . that’s a lot of stuff. I’m thinking some items might just need a re-do to gain functionality. I have one item that is on spindly 2×2 legs, but I might be able to add some addition boards/bracing and put it on wheels for a rolling work table. My next course of action will be to plug all this into Sketchup and re...

Garage Re-Do #2: The Before Pic (Caution: Graphic images -- LOL!)

1905 days ago by MyOldGarage | 12 comments »

Ok . . . this is just ugly I know. Part of the reason for that is it’s actually “in process” because I moved some stuff to get a work surface that I moved into the basement area. I have a 4 foot high table and a hutch type table area that I moved into the basement area for doing electronics and computer type work on. That freed up some area along the back wall, but left me with a lot of mess that was being stored on the table. Ugh. You can see the variety in stora...
