Wall-Hanging Plane Till/Hand Tool Cabinet #1: Contemplating and Planning

501 days ago by felkadelic | 1 comment »

To put it mildly, disorganization is a bit of an issue in my shop. I have a 2.5 year old and a 6 month old, so my shop time is sporadic and often interrupted. Working in a 1-car garage, I can’t really afford to have clutter. Thus, I decided to build a cabinet for my growing collection of hand planes and tools. The cabinet will need to have a reasonably well-sealing door, since I have an unheated shop in a humid environment and rust can be a problem. I started by making a list of ...

Tool box

549 days ago by Boatman53 | 11 comments »

Inspired by that little tool box I posted on the hand tools forum I’ve decided to build a small box of my own. The biggest tool I wanted to fit is my 12” x 18” framing square. The widest tool at the moment (there might be some changes) is the handle of an 8” brace at 3”. So the interior dimensions are 12 1/4” x18 1/4” x 3 1/2” . I have some teak left over from a job about three years ago that is already 1/2” thick so that is the wood IR...

My TINY shop renovation #1: GAAAAHHHHHHH!! I can't take it ANYMORE!!!!

589 days ago by StayinBroke | 6 comments »

Let me start by giving a brief overview of my shop, or the thing I like to call my shop. My “shop” is an 8’x8’ shed that sits in my back yard with an extension cord, or sometimes two, ran out to it from the house. Lets face it, the thing is a mess! I can’t hardly do anything in there! I have 2 workbenches and a whole mess of shelves with no real way to organize anything. One workbench has my scroll saw, drill press, and band saw on it. The other is where I do ev...

Working On My Shop With Plans and Hopes and Dreams #3: Adding Tools To My Cupboard

922 days ago by helluvawreck | 24 comments »

I’m still working on my shop. Unfortunately I’ve had a few interruptions with a honey do list and some work on the house as well as my work for the plant. So it’s moving a little slower than I had hoped. This is not meant to be anything other than a carpentry project and as you can see there is nothing pretentious about it. Its purely functional and practical in nature. In selecting the tools that I would place here I suppose two of the most important criteria were items ...

Working On My Shop With Plans and Hopes and Dreams #2: Building a Wall Tool Cupboard

954 days ago by helluvawreck | 11 comments »

In this part of this blog I will show the preparation of what I call a wall tool cupboard. I would call this a carpentry project. In building this cupboard I am interested mainly in building something useful for the shop that is purely utilitarian in nature. With that in mind it was not built as though I were working on a piece of furniture. It’s a useful carpentry project – nothing more. In the picture above on the right hand you can see the door entrance to the kitchen of...

Workshop Progress #2: Workshop Progress #2

992 days ago by WRAAdesign | 1 comment »

As I am working on this transformation, I am discovering just how small of a space I have to work with for my new workshop. This has forced me to look for additional space saving resolutions. The tool cubby is complete. It isn’t much to look at from a craftsmanship perspective, but it fits the bill for storing my power tools. These images also show the progress on my wood storage rack and work table. As you can see, budget is one of the main drivers here. The cabinet that I mounted abov...

Right Click to DownloadRight Click to Download in HDSubscription Options As is always the case, my designs tend to change on the fly. And since this was a Guild project, a lot of Guild member input went into the design modifications. So this video begins with a quick screencast showing you some of the changes I made to the tool cabinet since our last presentation. Viva la Sketchup! With the design mostly complete, we can start the construction phase. My goal is to build the project e...

"Why is This Car Parked in My Shop?" Turning My One Car Garage Into A Shop #1: Moving the Hand Tools In...Installing A French Cleat System

1689 days ago by Brad_Nailor | 11 comments »

So, I spent all summer building a barn, so I can move all the junk out of my garage, so I can buy a real cabinet saw, jointer, band saw, and drill press and have the room to leave them all reasonably set up so I don’t have to do the Harlem Shuffle every time I want to use a tool…(whew!) And wouldn’t you know it…the wife wants to park her car in the middle of my shop. More about that later…much later! So, I bought my Unisaw and built my out feed tableSo now I need...

The ply panel is glued and stapled flush to the drawer front. The finished “masterwork” Notice the copious plane shavi...
