Barrel Wine Rack #1: The Sides...

10-27-2009 02:27 AM by CaptainSkully | 4 comments »

It’s been at least a day since I started a new project/blog. My buddy Eric always says that projects are meant to be started, not necessarily finished. We go wine tasting in this rather industrial winery in Alameda, CA (we’re actually members). In their wine tasting loft is a very cute wine rack made out of wine staves. I’m at least as interested in their rack as their wine (far be it from me to pass up a nice rack). While waiting for other stuff to dry (that always...

French cleat garage storage system #2: Let's hang up some planes

09-24-2009 09:29 PM by jeffreythree | 8 comments »

I ‘had’ to try hanging something on the french cleat portion already up; so I picked my Stanley #6, 7, and 8 because they have stayed so buried I have not cleaned them up for use. I first picked out some likely lumber, a little eastern red cedar shorts from my mill, some left over 1/8” ply for a bottom, and an oak cleat from the left over pile. I ripped the cedar down to 1-1/4” for the trays. There was so much tension in the wood it literally cracked apart as...

The Chronicles of Woodworking in a Can #5: Still Trying

12-14-2009 05:51 PM by cmckerliesr | 6 comments »

Yes, I am still in the can and still trying to work things out. Storage, electrical and such. I have wanted to update the blog, but have not had a lot to say at the moment. Mainly because I wanted to have a solution to some of my issues rather than just telling you I am still working at it. But all I really have right now is that I am still working at it. So let me tell you a little about what has failed thus far in relation to trying to hang some upper cabinets or storage. I first t...

"Warehouse" Shelving #1: Introduction

08-31-2010 06:17 PM by Trimble | 2 comments »

Hi all… I just thought I’d jump in and start posting a few pictures of my current project. I’m not a seasoned woodworker by ANY means, though I’ve always secretly held a desire to learn woodworking. I live with my wife and son sharing a house with her parents. They were originally supposed to move out and let us take over the house, but when their project to buy a new house became a project to buy some empty land to “someday maybe” build a house on,...

Workshop #18: Making the wife happier

04-20-2013 09:06 PM 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 ...

Garage Organization By a Newbie #6: Something's Finally Built!

08-04-2010 07:25 AM by CyBorge | 4 comments »

The shelving unit is in service! I ended up using 1/2” plywood all around instead of vertical 2×4’s. I also decided not to depend on the garage walls for primary support, so it can be moved if desired, though I did screw it to a plywood strip that was pre-mounted on the wall. Even though the unit is strong enough on its own, that simple action added a ton of rigidity. Here’s what it looks like, all full of hastily loaded junk, but keep in mind the paint is actually ...

Time to make some changes to the shop. #10: Shop storage solutions for dead space.

10-16-2014 11:44 PM by AngieO | 13 comments »

I’ve been making some changes to my workshop. I have this dead space behind my entry door into my shop. Usually it ends up collecting boards… the kind that fall on you when you enter the shop. LOL! So over the weekend I decided to do two things… use up some of the wood I’ve been “collecting” and to clean up the shop. This was the area that my focus went to as I walked in the shop and as I closed the door a board fell and almost hit me. Oops! :) Sometime last year I ...

Odds 'N' Ends #6: Magnetic Forstner Bit Storage

02-04-2016 10:36 PM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

I thought I would try something different for bit storage this time. I grabbed one of those magnetic tool holders from Harbor Freight, cut a bunch of V-grooves into it with the bench grinder and bam, instant Forstner bit rack. What do you guys think?Enjoy! Magnetic Forstner Bit Storage
