Woodshop Build #2: My Space

03-04-2014 12:59 AM by VarnellWoodworks | 8 comments »

A lot of you are probably used to seeing woodshops full of tools and sawdust. Some even have woodshops that the brothers Green would be jealous of. Well, I have neither. In my first blog in this series, I shared my opinions on table saws and told you which one I was purchasing. Today I will be talking about the space that will eventually become my woodshop. As you can see, it looks more like a garage than a woodshop but I’m going to change that over the course of the next few...

Woodshop Build #1: Table Saw

02-22-2014 12:18 AM by VarnellWoodworks | 5 comments »

Just like many woodworkers out there, I am obsessed with my tools. They perform a function in my shop but they are more than just functional. They provide a sense of pride and aesthetic beauty that only my fellow woodworkers can understand. We spend countless hours mulling over specs. reviews, online videos, pricing, and countless other factors to find that perfect addition to the shop. When we find that perfect hand tool or piece of machinery, we obsess over fine tuning, adding accessori...

Woodshop Build, Varnell Woodworks

02-19-2014 04:56 AM by VarnellWoodworks | 2 comments »

I am jumping into my woodworking career with both feet. Unfortunately, this is not cheap and I do not have any tools worth anything. Also, having a handicap, I am on a very limited income. So, what is a woodworker to do? Start small, build up tools one at a time, accumulate better tools as you go. This is the plan, however, I need to start somewhere and my income only pays the bills that I have. I have found a possible source for start up expenses. I just signed up for a Crowd Funding webs...

Keeping Varmints Out of your Workshop

05-29-2013 04:24 PM by Harley130 | 8 comments »

If you are one of the fortunate few woodworkers who have an air conditioned workshop, then this is just fun reading for you. For the rest of us, who work out of garages or buildings with roll up doors then this applies.My workshop is in a two car garage with an 18 ft. wide door. In the summertime trying to work is hard because of the flying insects that come in to buzz about and land on an arm or leg, and starting drilling for blood right as I’m running a board through the table saw. ...

Woodworking Shop

11-04-2012 11:06 PM by MWGreg | 10 comments »

Hi everyone, This is a cool website. Well I just would like to join you all in sharing what I have going on. This is the beginning of my dream shop. Been waiting for this for over twenty years. The main shop will measure 24’ x 30’. An 8’ wide porch will go down the length of the left side, half of which will be enclosed and accessible from the main section. I’m having an Amish contractor build it. I was very fortunate that they dug the holes and got the posts set an...

Woodshop Overhaul #1: The plan

09-03-2012 02:52 AM by Mike Merzke | 3 comments »

So I’ve discovered that my original garage woodshop was not very functional for me. With only about half of a two car garage to use for space, I was lacking an outfeed table and assembly table, and only had a workbench that was attached to the wall. I was also in serious need of storage space. So off to the computer I went. Lucky for me I had a copy of Microsoft Visio on my work laptop computer. Well after several trips back and forth and a lot of measuring I came up with a plan… ...

Setting Up Shop #2: The Tools Are Here

06-22-2012 10:05 PM by Rex B | 1 comment »

I have done a lot of work on the woodshop since my last post. My fiancee and I spent a weekend painting the whole garage, and it looks awesome. The previous owner had taped and screwed stuff to the walls all over the place, and now all those marks have disappeared. Once the painting was done, I was able to move my tools and workbench in, with the help of 3 strong friends. I’m sure glad I only had to move the table saw about 3/4 of a mile to the new house. Here’s what the sh...

Setting Up Shop #1: The Plan, Advice Wanted

06-14-2012 08:12 PM by Rex B | 11 comments »

So here’s the background: I bought my first house about 3 weeks ago and have been planning my garage woodshop for about a month now. I am almost ready to start moving in and figured that I can use the advise of my fellow Jocks before I dig in. I don’t have a picture of the garage to put up, but it’s a pretty standard 2-car garage with no windows. It came with some pegboards and other built-in shelving on the walls, but I wanted a fresh start so I have been removing everyt...
