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...

Tools #3: Grinding and polishing station

03-18-2014 12:19 AM by PASs | 3 comments »

I have a thing for filing cabinets. I have 19 (nineteen) in my shop.I get them for free or dirt cheap off Craig’s List. And they are all high quality (Hon or equivalent.)A couple weeks ago I decided to consolidate my two grinders on separate stations into one master station.My main grinder was set on a rolling tool stand. It has the lathe sharpening setup underneath. The second grinder is a cheapo for general purpose grinding. The goal was to mount them back-to-back in the (futile...

Small shop --Small spaces

02-28-2014 01:27 AM by poospleasures | 6 comments »

I written before about using all your space. When you have a small shop and you keep on acquiring more and more stuff you must have a way to store it handy but out of the way. This may seem unimportant when you have a bunch of room but to all you others try these.Now if I can get the sleds to show their not pretty but they work for me. Have seen some ideas for storing sleds lately but those places were already taken in my shop. I did spot a blank place under the floor model drill press whe...

Build a Saw Till with a shelf

I needed somewhere better to store my hand saws. I wanted something that looked good, held hand saws of varying lengths, and included some storage. Here is what I came up with. Please check out the video for a how too and subscribe to my YouTube channel for weekly videos on Blacksmithing and Woodworking.

Video: French Cleat Blade Storage Rack

02-16-2014 02:12 PM by JSB | 9 comments »

Hello everyone. After another productive Saturday in the shop I came up with this French cleat saw blade storage option. It can be modified to your dimensions and needs as always. It features two rows of blade storage with 6 partitions each. The dividers can be removed for larger blades such as 1/2” or 3/4” bandsaw blades. You could even reduce the spacing on one of them for more table saw blades. For added storage options on the outside you could use dowels, screws, or nails. ...

Season of shop upgrades #1: Shop Improvements

02-16-2014 10:24 AM by PJ72 | 3 comments »

This past year I have occupied my shop time in efforts to organize the shop and spent the time to build several shop tools and accessories. Having a garage shop that is primarily used for parking cars; it has been a constant challenge to optimize the space as a part time woodworking shop. This year I removed everything from the garage to thoroughly clean and re-organize the shop. I painted the walls and added 8 banks of overhead fluorescent lights to brighten up the space. Free up Spac...

Garage Cabinet #2: Slowly but slowly

02-04-2014 07:47 PM by jakeprater | 2 comments »

This morning, rather than exercising or actually studying for school, I went back to the garage to try to knock out the shelf. I was out there for about 45 minutes, and came in at 1:00 pm. I went out at 8:30. So my day was pretty well shot. I’ll hit the books this afternoon, take a test, and hopefully not fail. Here you can see I’ve got the face frame attached. I like to use dowels to help me keep everything aligned – plus I’m a little cheap, so I don’t wa...

Temporary hand plane and saw till AKA Real Jewelry!

01-22-2014 06:20 PM by CFrye | 14 comments »

Shop storage is currently a bunch of open shelving that hubby put up. It’s a temporary thing and we both are looking forward to improving on it. Since I’ve started down the slippery slope of hand tools the shelves are getting rather cluttered on my side. I’m looking at plans for wall hung cabinets. I’ve got a nasty respiratory bug that has kept me out of the shop all of January (doc says no dust producing activities) and so, not wanting to be idle, I’ve taken the...

STACK-ABLE boxes - storage solution

01-21-2014 02:09 AM by wyeth | 4 comments »

I got carried away again when I saw a steam cleaner on special at our local supermarket. I had one of these a few years ago but it only lasted a year or two. This new one is supposed to be “new and improved”and it has lots of attachments most of which I will likely never use.I hate trying to keep these things in the original box – the hassle of getting out the parts you need is so annoyingthat you never want to use the damn thing and my wife hates them even more.It is useful...

SCMS stand w/ folding wings #2: Partitions

12-29-2013 02:53 AM by Mainiac Matt | 3 comments »

We do a lot of corrugated partitions at work, and occasionally do similar designs out of plywood cut on the CNC for use in crates. So I laid these out in 1/4” Masonite and banged them out about a month ago. Here are the individual pieces… Ad here they are set up…
