Cheap, easy to make and incredibly strong shelving

341 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...

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

1376 days ago 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 ...

The American Craftsman WorkShop #16: Sheet Goods Organizer

1663 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 22 comments »

Increased Efficiency Through Better Organization My shop environment is always shifting and evolving. The goal is to create an efficient space to work in. My shop is not large by business or commercial standards and many hobbyists enjoy a work space as large as mine. But large shop or small, as a business I have to focus on efficiency to make money. A Couple of Problems One of the biggest offenders for this disorderly disaster was storage for sheet goods. The goal is not to bec...

Shop Organization #9: Workbench Cabinet (Part 2)

2342 days ago by gizmodyne | 8 comments »

Drawer Parts Galore I started by squaring some panels to the width of the drawers. To save time I rabbeted the entire panel. Later I would rip them to create the sized drawer fronts. Testing the drawer front fit. You can see the drawer pieces in each cubby awaiting their fronts. The backs of the drawers are held by dadoes 1/2” in from the back of the drawer. I got to spend some quality time with the new crosscut sled.If you squint you can see that there is another 1/2”...

SHOP VERSION 2.0

1492 days ago by bfd | 22 comments »

I have spent much of my freetime recently organizing, overhauling and simply cleaning out my shop. Now for some of you who have viewed my shop here on LJ you may have thought that it was already organized but I wanted to increase my closed storage and clean things up a bit. The storage came way of a recent commision I did. I recently did some custom walnut fronts for a client who was redoing her kitchen. To save money she put in IKEA Kitchen cabinet cases and had me do all custom drawer a...

Dutch Tool Chest #4: Tills and Thrills

470 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...

Router Table #9: Drawers, Bits, and a little Playtime

1650 days ago by PurpLev | 19 comments »

Had some shop time today with 42 degrees outside, it was quite a lovely day. my compressor came back to life also – I guess when it goes below 40 the air is too thin for the compressor to be able to raise the pressure in the tank. I also got the radiant heater from Lee Valley. Last time around, by the time I decided to order it- they were out of stock, and just received new stock this week. it works well, not as well as I was hoping for, but decent. To turn it on/off you have to yank...

Virtual Designs in Sketchup #3: Rolling Tool Cart

1151 days ago by rance | 3 comments »

I got the inspiration for this from Workbench Magazine . I deliberately did not look at their drawings for dimensions or scale. This cart looked like a good design. As with many projects, it is infinitely easier to customize an existing design rather than come up with all original ideas. How many times do we stand on the shoulders of giants that have gone before us? The inner structure: I replaced the pegboard on theirs with 1/2” plywood thinking I would simply screw to...

Tool cabinet #4: Getting it all together

2433 days ago by CutNRun | 7 comments »

I was able to spend some time in the shop over the holiday and finished getting the tool cabinet together. The drawer fronts are mounted as is the hardware. All glides are installed and the trays mounted in the cabinet section. Next will be taking everything apart, sanding, and finishing. I plan to locate some drawer liner material to put in the bottom of the drawings.
