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…

SCMS stand w/ folding wings #1: Plan modeled

12-29-2013 02:16 AM by Mainiac Matt | 9 comments »

Two years ago I found this article in FWW magazine and knew this was the sand I wanted to build. Since I have already built a hood and have my saw parked right next to my DC, I decided to modify the design and use the case to organize my cut offs. Here’s the magazine plan… And here’s my design modeled up in Solid Works… I did all this two years ago, but it has just now made it to the top of my list.

Wood Plane Storage

12-25-2013 09:50 PM by Joe Lyddon | 9 comments »

Plane Storage on slanting board . . Plane Storage on slanting board I got to thinking about my planes scattered all over the shop… on shelves, in drawers, & here & there. I could consolidate their storage, get them all together, and make more overall storage space for other things! So, I grabbed some scraps and started out Mapping Out where the various planes would fit on the board. I screwed 1/4” ply 1/2” strips for separators, drew more ...

Work(shop) in Progress #19: Bar Clamp Storage

12-24-2013 08:14 PM by PurpLev | 9 comments »

I just went over some old pics and noticed I never officially posted this one, so here it is. This is how I have my bar clamps stored and organized (by length) at eye level so that even if one falls, it won’t do much damage (to me) as well as making it easy to reach and grab what is needed: Cheers!

As promised in my Gloat to End all Gloats post, I’m starting a blog series dedicated to discovering, moving in, and setting up the dedicated shop we got as part of our recent home purchase. I plan to put several types of posts under this one series, which will range from discovering the new tools to setting up the shop and making it my own. I’d like to start by letting y’all know we closed on the house on Friday afternoon, so we have spent all weekend clean...

Easy Pallet made Yard Tool Storage

09-28-2013 01:06 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 1 comment »

I was tired of walking around tripping over shovels, rakes, brooms, and whatever else was laid around. I didn’t want to buy one of those plastic corner tool storage things from the local big box store so I made one a few years ago. After yard duties have evolved, so has the collection of tools. Now I have axes, mauls, and sledge hammers. It was time to build another tool storage. This was made from a single pallet, so it has that “rustic” look. Tools used: circular saw, dril...

Shop upgrades #1: Making some shop upgrades this fall...lumber storage

09-10-2013 04:25 PM by JimNEB | 2 comments »

I felt like I was getting buried in cut-offs and bit and pieces of sheet goods, then I saw a video by Steve Ramsey (woodworking for mere mortals) on his lumber cart. Bingo, here was the solution I was looking for. A couple of days later i had it about full. He didn’t tell you on the video hat it takes two men and a boy to move it before the casters are on it, ugh!

Cheap, easy to make and incredibly strong shelving

08-18-2013 11:53 AM by mhfinefurniture | 5 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...
