Table saw storage box #1: The Concept

12-06-2010 07:37 AM by Marty Backe | 5 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):

Minor shop upgrade - tool hangers

05-09-2011 03:24 AM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 6 comments »

I’m not the neatest guy at putting away stuff, but my 15-year old son make me look like a “cleanie”. Add to that I’ve always been bugged by the post in my workshop. I saw a post somewhere about putting tool storage on your post thereby taking a negative and making the best out of it. This is my attempt to do that and add some tool hangers. I also bought some hole cutters and didn’t have a good place for them. We are always trying to find pencils so I thoug...

Build a Saw Till with a shelf

02-20-2014 06:51 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

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.

Yea . . . that’s my garage experience in ...

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...

Hand tools #3: Brace Storage

03-07-2017 03:43 AM by CFrye | 40 comments »

I built a temporary till for the braces (Note: does not include the egg beaters or the breast drills). I counted 15 at the beginning of the build and made it able to hold 17. While loading it this evening I realized there are 2 MIA!It ain’t pretty, but they’re all together…well, they will be, when I find the wanderers. Used some left over siding. Drilled holes and cut the slots on the scroll saw. Filed the rough edges and put on a coat of Black Cherry stain followed by an ap...

Garage Overhead Cabinets #3: Bought Wood -- Where Can I Buy Time?

03-05-2009 10:22 PM by MyOldGarage | 1 comment »

(Found at http://www.laughingcoyotewoodworks.com/snoozebutton.html) So last weekend we were forecasted to get a big snowstorm here in KC, and this time the forecasters really did know what they were talking about. I anticipated this and went out for a couple of sheets of 3/4 Baltic Birch plywood and two 8 foot 1×8’s. I figured that would give me the materials to keep working through the weekend, because I wouldn’t want my 2wd Dakota out and about in the snow. I got ...

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...
