Plywood Storage Cart #1: Plywood/Lumber cart musings - or How I would like to clean my garage!

933 days ago by chopnhack | 6 comments »

Part of my problem, which I assume all woodworkers have is that there is no such thing as scrap wood….thus the piles of ply and lumber everywhere. This leads me to where I am now, musing over a design or two to aid in my quest for floor space and for that matter to just be able to see my floor! At this point I grow weary of looking at sketchup and would like your thoughts. Picture #1 – the overall design, partly borrowed from the generic A frame you have all seen around, wit...

Storage Shed #5: The Roof

2619 days ago by MsDebbieP | 14 comments »

This past weekend provided us time to work on the roof of the shed. We have only a couple of weeks left before my son-in-law has to be out of his apartment and the storage stuff will either be in my hallways in the house – or in the shed!! The weekend also brought us HEAT and so we chose to work in the morning… avoid the heat in the middle of the day.. and return to work in the evening. This part of the process, I think, is the most difficult. We had to:1) haul some heavy lu...

The American Craftsman WorkShop #18: Shop Organization Continues

1687 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 20 comments »

Purging the Lumber Rack Woodworkers naturally have the hoarding instinct and this must be kept in check with strict discipline. The lumber rack has been gathering leftover material and unique pieces of wood for years with little culling to insure the quality of the collection. I cleared three small shelves first and gave a good stack of wood away to a local LumberJock member. He got a Porter Cable dovetail jig for Christmas and this will keep him busy with making boxes. I had the wood b...

Storage Beds #1: First Project in a Long Time

908 days ago by gubawatts | 0 comments »

I found some great ideas for building storage beds for our two boys on the internet, at Ana White Homemaker. After studying these plans for a bit, I decided I wanted to make some changes, mainly to upgrade the joinery methods and make the base cabinets deeper, so they met in the middle under the box spring. So, here’s what I came up with after learning google sketchup, and going through a few design revisions. This bed is basically made up of several box cabinets that will be bolted ...

Plywood Storage Cart #2: All in a day's work....

932 days ago by chopnhack | 5 comments »

Well I thought I could have the whole cart knocked out in one day, but you wouldn’t believe how incredibly hard it is to work in a garage full of crap! Well, then again, maybe you have been there and can sympathize. Needless to say I made a lot of dust and made some big wood into smaller pieces today. I will let the photo do the talking because there isn’t much to say: torsion box + 4” wheels = platform. :-) As for design, there have been some changes to account for my st...

Amazing Tools #6: The Bench SlideMount

1846 days ago by Gary Fixler | 12 comments »

I think I’m going to end up with several Bench SlideMounts. They’re exactly what I didn’t realize I’ve been looking for. I’ve been dragging my heels on a bad idea I’ve had to install T-tracks in my 8’x2’ work table, seen here almost 2 years ago when the garage was still nice and empty and traversable. I’d make a shelf below the bench to hold my smaller bench tools on squares of plywood, bringing each up as needed, sliding its bolts into...

Stock & Cutoff storage #1: The Plan

588 days ago by Speed8ump | 2 comments »

I, like so many other neophyte woodworkers have too much stuff and not enough space. I only bought what I needed and only built what really needed to be made. So now here I am, 12’x18’ garage, detached, unheated, one little 60 watt bulb (10’ up on the ceiling), one plug in the ceiling (for the garage door opener). Then I got the table saw. Then my folks moved into a little retirement house. Between the inherited tools and the new prevalence of cut-offs I can’t tur...

French cleat garage storage system #1: Starting my largest storage project ever

1793 days ago by jeffreythree | 4 comments »

I decided the other day that those nifty french cleats would look real cool on my garage wall for modular, adjustable storage. My wife has a hard time dodging my tools, I can’t help bringing home new ones, and I cannot get to some to use them without 15 minutes of rearranging. The 20’ long wall I picked was relatively barren other than some yard tool holders and an extension cord holder. It is about 9’ to the ceiling and I have chosen to space the 3” cleats with 3-...

The American Craftsman WorkShop #24: Mobile Parts Cart

1641 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 15 comments »

During the construction of a project there is often a need for organizing and storing parts. This is obvously a temporary need because as the work progresses, you construct parts and then assemble them. I like to use a 4’ scaffold as a mobile cart to store and organize the parts that I have made. I bought my scaffold for $99 although I have noticed that the price has risen on them over the last couple of years. It comes with steel platform shelves to stand on and I used plywoo...

STACK-ABLE boxes - storage solution

212 days ago 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...
