So I’ve got a couple of hand planes I need to store I’ve gathered these over the last decade, from garage and estate sales. Rarely paid more than $5-10 for them. Except the 45’s that were $35, one of them even had all the blades. I started with the router plane. and the Stanley 78’s. For the router plane just drilled some holes in a board, added some dowels. The holes in the top hold the extra blades. Here they are hung up on the wall. Just cut out s...
So I just got done building my first router table, by cannibalizing an old work bench I had built a few years ago, and stealing the plate from my other router table, my problem due to my limited and crowded work space, is keeping things with in reach, I have four router bits that I use religiously so having them with right there with in reach is more convenient for me, so i came up with the fence storage on the back side of the fence, this way here, I can keep my router bits with in r...
It’s hard to believe just two short years ago the only hand tools I owned were a retractable measuring tape and a few miniature tools (6” nail bar, vise grips, etc). Then I joined Lumberjocks and shortly thereafter The Hand Plane Swap. That’s when I got The Affliction (or it got me)! I bought two block planes, then a bench plane, then…you get the idea. It didn’t stop with planes. I went to check out a Craig’s List ad for planes and not finding any in my pri...

Yes, a topic close to all our hearts – how to keep our clamps stored efficiently but kept easily accessible. After realising that a previously-useless-seeming space could be used to hang clamps, and looking at many ways to do so, I grabbed some scrap, glued it, cut it, screwed it to more scrap, then screwed the whole lot on the wall. I’ll add some more jutting-out-bits so that the rest of the clamps can be hung on there too.
Well after restoring the Clearcut chisels I figured they and the rest of my chisels should have a special place to call home. I took one of the drawers under my workbench and made it my chisel drawer. Check out this little video I titled THE PERFECT FIT. View on YouTube Thank you.
I’ve been told I need to find a home other than my kitchen table for my planes that have taken up residence.I’ve been hesitant to move them to the shop – mainly because my shop is like most – no a/c or heat with a decent amount of humidity. I decided as my first foray into the world of joinery and hand tools I’d build a quasi portable till. I’m no expert in Sketchup and I’m sure there’s a few mistakes that I haven’t discovered yet, but her...
Wow that first post got a little wordy (I should really learn to take more/better pictures) well moving right along. So we have the upper shelf section done now with the design I am going for I want to tuck my vertical storage underneath it and behind my movable sheet goods cart. Depth here is going to be an issue (I have bid shop envy) as we still only have 2’ to work with so lets consider what kind of space that cart will take up. I have decided the base of my cart will be a 2...
So this is actually the second posting about the same blog but like it mentioned in the first blog, this I actually the first blog on as a member of this site so I didn’t know how the series thing work…I think I have it figured out. So…as I talked about in the first blog I was unsure of the route I wanted to take, either do my shop remodel to update my small shop and make it more of a workable comfortable space but since I am lacking the funds to do it all in one time I w...
