Cheap, easy to make and incredibly strong shelving

344 days ago by mhfinefurniture | 4 comments »

Last year I embarked on project that included redoing the storage room in my shop and also building a gambrel style shed on my property. After completing this, I was looking at needing about 120 lineal feet of storage shelving for both. I didn’t want to go with a built in 2×4 constructed shelving unit as they are not adjustable, a pain to build/paint ( I have done it before) and more importantly I can’t take them with me if I ever move. I looked at the local borg and it would have bee...

Roubo Inspired Bench #1: A "slight departure" from the Woodwhisperer Roubo Workbench Build

431 days ago by jusfine | 7 comments »

The desire for a new workbench was born before Marc began his Roubo build last year, but I can’t say his 2012 videos did not throw more fuel on the fire, as did some of the “Worbench of your Dreams” discussions and topics here. Personally, I need more space for storage, and it seems to be a waste to me to have an open base, so I decided to build an enclosed base, and in doing so, it caused me some design problems as I began to wander away from the WW plan. The more sites ...

Delta Contractor Style Table Saw Storage Cabinet #1: Doing the plan in Sketchup

433 days ago by Harley130 | 1 comment »

Spent several hours yesterday putting together a drawing in Sketchup (SKU) for the under the wing storage cabinet for my Delta Contractor table saw. I have a Biesemeyer fence on the saw with the 30” extension so I have a large space underneath the right wing. The tall drawer on the right is a pull out that will have a panel in the middle, with access to both sides, that will allow me to store saw blades, dado blades, etc. on dowel pegs. The drawers is where I can keep various items u...

Workshop #18: Making the wife happier

464 days ago by clieb91 | 9 comments »

As most of you know it is usually a good thing to have a happy wife. Well I am just finishing up a few projects that are helping to make my wife a little happier. Some of you know I have a basement workshop, I keep some of my wood though upstairs in the garage (same place my wife parks everyday). Well the wood was getting a bit out of hand. Note my sheet goods on the far right side. One of my drying piles. So a few weeks ago I tackled the sheet goods side. I got rid of a few ...

Dutch Tool Chest #4: Tills and Thrills

473 days ago by Brandon | 26 comments »

This is where we left off last time—- a basic carcass completed but no tools inside it yet. On a side note, do you prefer to spell it carcass or carcase? I’ve seen it both ways. So now comes the fun part: figuring out how I’m going to fit all these tools into the upper section of tool chest. At this point, I’m not really concerned with my larger hand saws, my specialty planes, mallets etc., but most of the smaller hand tools. It seems like a lot of tools, but if...

Stock & Cutoff storage #2: Flexible Sheet Storage

546 days ago by Speed8ump | 0 comments »

I rarely have a large amount of sheet goods, and when I do it tends to sit around for a limited time. Given that I really don’t want to waste space in my very small shop, so I’ve decided that my wood storage cart should have slide-out base. This is a little difficult to describe clearly so, here’s the picture of the result both closed: and opened: This allows me to squeeze this down to just under 24” with only a couple of sheets stored. It can be pulled out an ex...

Stock & Cutoff storage #1: The Plan

565 days ago by Speed8ump | 2 comments »

I, like so many other neophyte woodworkers have too much stuff and not enough space. I only bought what I needed and only built what really needed to be made. So now here I am, 12’x18’ garage, detached, unheated, one little 60 watt bulb (10’ up on the ceiling), one plug in the ceiling (for the garage door opener). Then I got the table saw. Then my folks moved into a little retirement house. Between the inherited tools and the new prevalence of cut-offs I can’t tur...

Future Shop Shelving #1: OK - it's not all wood!

568 days ago by curliejones | 0 comments »

I have previously commented on the transition to a new workshop knowing this would be a long, long, process. But with each journey, you must take one step at a time. Last year I built a garden shed/greenhouse as a first step. Mowers, tillers, chainsaw, etc. all have a new home thus clearing the current “shed’s” dropshed. I just began phase two – and this involves closing in about 2/3 of the carport. The motivation to write about it came from the shelving I ...

Shop Organization #2: Clamp storage.

618 days ago by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

For the pictures, click here. After returning from the Bahamas, I had a long list of projects and ideas that needed some attention. But I discovered that finding other stuff to do first is almost inherent in operating a woodshop. Case in point—-I needed to work on a mirror frame that we had planned to create from trim. Sounds simple enough, just measure and cut the trim and stain and install, right? Well, I decided I wanted to cut the miters by hand. I have a miter saw and a m...

Dave's Workshop #2: The Disappearing Clamp Rack

695 days ago by Dave Rutan | 4 comments »

Wall space is a premium in my shop because of the multiple uses of the space. When I started thinking about making clamps I knew I would need a place to store them. I devised a way to put a clamp rack in front of my scrap stick area and hinge it so that it could be pulled up to the ceiling when I didn’t need to access my longer clamps. It’s raised with two pullies with the rope held taught with an old window sash weight. A clip hooks onto a screw eye at the bottom of the rack...
