Remodel the Shop #1: Initial Sketchup Drawing - ideas welcome

2333 days ago by Kevin | 19 comments »

Well, I finally sat down last night night and drew up the shop. This was the first attempt, so it may change some. Also most of the tools/cabinets are very rough or borrowed. I’ll try to get them better when gets closer to constructing them. I’ll start you out on the East wall. Most of this is already set in stone you might say. I am planning on putting a pipe rack over the double garage door. May get used for dimensional lumber storage as well. On the left is my double ...

COMPLETE REMODEL OF SHOP!!! - Ideas welcome.

2335 days ago by Kevin | 5 comments »

I am going to “try” to do a good job of taking more pictures of my shop remodel than I usually do. Of course I have already failed in that because I forgot to take the before pictures with all of tools randomly scattered around and very unuseful. Intro: I have been very lucky in the last six months in that my lovely wife has allowed me to expand my tool collection. I have bought most of my tools or received them as gifts in the last 6 months actually. See my other posts for...

New shop under construction #3: Electrical and Plumbing are almost done. And look, a birthday surprise!

2348 days ago by Loogie | 13 comments »

The outside of the shop is almost done all that’s left is to put the shutters and crown moulding on the front window and put the gutters on. The overhead doors won’t be installed until the drywall and paint are complete. The electricians have been working at a good pace and the rough-in is all completed. The plumbing and electrical inspections should be today. My 40th birthday is coming up soon. My shop has gone so far over budget that I informed my wife a month or so ag...

The American Craftsman WorkShop #6: It's Operational!

2353 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 21 comments »

The shop is not finished but it is operational again. I need to use the space for a project I have going right now. I still have plenty of work ahead to finish it. I can wait on floor cabinets and worktop but the upper cabinets or at least some open cubby boxes to store glue, sandpaper, routers, etc. are a must. Clamp storage on the wall will clear a good bit of floor space. I did not have to buy hardly anything to do this work, it was material that I had on hand. I have many more id...

The American Craftsman WorkShop #4: The Next Section

2357 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 17 comments »

One Section Finished I finished this section of wall the other day and the trim. After that I pushed all the shop “furniture” back against the wall. This opened up the center of the shop again so that I could clear the next section of wall to be finished. I can’t always work corner to corner because I waited until I put too much crap in the shop to finish the walls. I did, however, already have 3 walls finished as you can see in my workshop posting. Now that I...

The American Craftsman WorkShop #1: Home Again (JOY!)

2364 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 19 comments »

Back in Big Sky Country! I have been home about three weeks now and I have been quite busy settling back in. I am so happy to be back with my wife, Rita, and my two dogs. The geography here is so good to see again. Here is the view out my backyard towards the Yellowstone River. The first thing I had to do was unpack and start settling back into my life at home and in my shop. I have been working for most of the last 4 1/2 years just north of Columbus, OH on some great projects. B...

New shop under construction #1: Groundbreaking to framing

2375 days ago by Loogie | 17 comments »

After years of building my projects in basements, I’m finally building my own shop. This building will be a three level shop building (including the attic). The main (middle) level will be my woodshop and the basement will be my tractor garage/shed/auto shop. The project is far behind schedule and way over budget, but aren’t they all? The foundation is 25’ wide by 30’ deep giving me just under 750 sq/ft of woodshop. It’s never enough, but it would be very hard to...
