Virtual Designs in Sketchup #1: Wall / Portable Tool Rack

04-19-2011 10:53 PM by rance | 3 comments »

I seem to have a lot of SU drawings that I do that may or may not ever be built. Either way, I thought others might benefit from them. This first one is a paged tool rack similar to ones I’m sure you’ve seen in several publications. Some I like, some I see blatant flaws in. This style reminds me of the days way back when I would go to the Dept. Store and look at the blacklight posters. A couple of changes I’ve made include being able to quickly and easily remove it...

Shop Improvements #2: Not the Studley Tool Cabinet, But Close Enough

02-28-2011 03:33 PM by pastorglen | 9 comments »

After taking some good advice from several of you on LJ, I finally started moving tools into my tool cabinet. I began my tapping off a section of my work bench the same size as my tool cabinet. Then I put all of my tools “in the box.” I even had my kids help arrange them. When all was said and done, I came out with this arrangement. I’ll have some more pictures of the doors, which have my chisels. (You can see three of the backsaws I’ve made recently, too.) It...

52 Weeks #8: Week 8- Of Plywood, Practice and Cleaning up.

02-28-2011 04:05 AM by clieb91 | 2 comments »

I have to say I have had a real good week in the shop and I am quite happy with the outcome. As noted earlier on in this series I have been wanting to get things a bit more organized and also get my lathe cleaned off and able to be used. So I spent a good portion of time this week working on a new cabinet (still needs doors but I will make them this time I promise) and some drawers for my powertool bench, all of which gave me some good practice. The best part is that I did not need to buy any...

Table saw storage box #1: The Concept

12-06-2010 07:37 AM by Marty Backe | 4 comments »

I decided to use some leftover 1/2 inch plywood to make a storage box for my table saw accessories. The box will be mounted on the existing shelf of my saw. Here’s a video that provides an overview (watch on Youtube for HD version):

Setting up new shop #4: Lumber storage

11-22-2010 06:59 AM by WoodenSoldier | 2 comments »

Spent a little time today finishing my lumber storage rack. Since I work in a small basement and my planer and bandsaw are kept in a shed out back it only makes sense for me to store my wood out back too. I got the shelves from work, and today I picked up a piece of OSB and some flberglass corrugated roof panels to protect it from the rain.I’m pretty happy with it and I think it will work well. Does anyone have any other tips for storing wood outdoors? It’s not beaut...

Outdoor (Insulated) Generator Box Build

11-13-2010 03:38 AM by MayflowerDescendant | 13 comments »

When my wife and I relocated from Southern Ontario to the West Coast of British Columbia, we (by-and-large) left cold and snowy winters behind us. While it was easy to adjust to a more temperate, albeit wetter, climate, the occasional coastal windstorm (with winds up to 100 km’s/hour or 60 mph) can easily disrupt your hydro / power supply. Even though the power lines in our area are all underground, we are “fed” from areas where the power lines are above ground. Trees / l...

Workshop Upgrades #1: Organizing the shop

10-25-2010 03:47 AM by jcwalleye | 8 comments »

Shop Upgrades It’s been a month and a half since moving into the new shop and I’ve had a little time to complete a few upgrades. First is a mitre saw station. There’s 6’ on the left and unlimited room on the right if you want to go out the door. It’s made from three cabinets with four drawers in each cabinet all made with ¾” shop grade maple plywood. It’s trimmed with hard maple and the drawer fronts are poplar. Some of the plywood in the carcass had nice birdseye so it’s finished wit...

Torque WorkCentre #5: Birds Beak Shelving

10-21-2010 07:54 PM by dustbunny | 16 comments »

About two weeks ago Hopdevil posted a question to the forum about shelving he had seen in the Martha Stewart Magazine. It is called birds beak shelving.Well thank you Hopdevil, a gun went off in my head. This would be the perfect project for the Torque WorkCentre.So off I went to my shop with video camera in hand and shot this remedial video showing how easy this project was to make. It was more difficult to get the camera and my mouth working at the same time so I think it shows how I really...

Table Saw Outfeed and Blade Storage #1: Concept and Casework, Shelves

10-19-2010 05:40 AM by jusfine | 5 comments »

I saw this in an older Fine Woodworking issue (#202) and was compelled to finish my outfeed table for my Unisaw. Mine needs to be built a little different as I have the sliding table to the left of my saw, and the left extension wing is removed. My storage below the table will really only have only one usable side and end. I designed it to be 90 degrees from the photo, two drawers at the bottom, table saw blade storage, and an open spot for my dado blade kits on the higher level. I ...
