From cluttered garage to organized (hopefully) wood shop!! #4: After (and despite) agonizing injury, finally getting back to work!

06-04-2016 06:08 AM by PeterDominic1983 | 0 comments »

Well! It has been almost two weeks since I last updated this blog… I don’t typically slack like this, but I had to put the garage cleaning (and work in general) on hold. So… after a visit to the ER, Xrays, an MRI, and several mind-numbing appointments with orthopedic specialists and a neurosurgeon, it turns out I have degenerative disc disease in my spine (pretty common occurrence) as well as bulging discs in my lumbar region… Most pointedly, my L4/L5 discs between...

Where to find motivation!

06-02-2016 01:24 AM by Jbreth | 3 comments »

So, after doing woodworking for 15+ years as a career, I have come to a midlife crisis as it may seem. I absolutely cannot find motivation to get in the garage and do what I love most. It saddens me deeply as it seems that my creativity has left every vein in my body and I cannot find the motivation to do much of anything these days. I don’t know if it has anything to do with being laid off a couple times in my work career, or what but motivation is no where to be found. I try and t...

I would like to thank everyone for reading along as I spoil myself with this amazing remodel. It is such a huge difference for me, I am not sure it will really sink in until I have made three or four projects there. It has been a pleasure to have you all follow along and cheer me on. You have been an amazing bunch of people to chat with and get to know. So thanks a million.This will be my last blog for some time as I need to concentrate on orders and getting my world put back together. I have...

Building the Ultimate Garage Woodshop #9: DONE!

11-05-2015 05:46 AM by Blake | 17 comments »

Pretty much done. Obviously there is a long list of finishing touches that I will be working on throughout the winter. But after about 3 years its finally a woodshop. And an art studio. And a ton of storage. And a built-in laundry. And remember that I was able to fit this all into a one car garage. One of my goals, other than to have a kick ass work space, was to show what was possible in a one car garage. I wanted to be a bit of an inspiration to other woodworkers who don’t have ...

Dread Knot Woodshop #1: I started a YouTube Channel!

After years of watching other woodworkers on YouTube, I thought it was time for me to join in. I have started a woodworking channel called Dread Knot Woodshop (you can find it here). The first video is a tour of my new shop and the second video is my first project in which I build a clamp rack. Please watch, like, and subscribe if you feel so inclined. I will be posting all future videos to this blog series for those of you that would like to follow along. You can find the first video he...

Woodshop/Garage Build #7: Walls and Windows and a roof... Oh my!

09-16-2015 01:17 AM by BMichs75 | 2 comments »

The last weekend in August I finally got around to erecting the woodshop/garage structure. It took 7 guys and a Gradall 13 hours to erect the building and finish the roof substructure. We lifted the small walls off the 50 footers and set the long walls in place first, followed by the smaller walls. I will say my cheeks were clenched pretty tight when the first 50 foot wall was lifted and spun 180degrees before being set. It’s really amazing to see all the work and how fast things come t...

Woodshop/Garage Build #5: It is time.....FINALLY!

08-20-2015 12:44 PM by BMichs75 | 2 comments »

This unusual summer has taken a toll on me both mentally and physically… I guess you could even throw in emotionally as well. My garage project has taken a back seat to some unfortunate timings and delays both with weather and scheduling conflicts. I have been able to knock a few small items off the checklist, but have not started any of the fun stuff. I dug a dry well for my downspouts and drains, plumbed drainage system, shoveled and wheeled 12 tons of stone to the dry well and founda...

The "Shed" #3: Inner Framing and Insulation Thoughts

11-11-2014 06:49 AM by Ty Sullivan | 5 comments »

This last weekend did not yield an overly fruitful progression on the microshop as the house soaked up most of my attention. I was able to start a portion of the inner framing to prep the walls for insulation and electrical placements. These types of sheds have LARGE frame centers but they’re still set on a 16” center around the perimeter. So, it is just a matter of filling in the missing sections and tying everything together. As you can tell nothing too complicated about it ...
