Time to make some changes to the shop. #10: Shop storage solutions for dead space.

10-16-2014 11:44 PM by AngieO | 12 comments »

I’ve been making some changes to my workshop. I have this dead space behind my entry door into my shop. Usually it ends up collecting boards… the kind that fall on you when you enter the shop. LOL! So over the weekend I decided to do two things… use up some of the wood I’ve been “collecting” and to clean up the shop. This was the area that my focus went to as I walked in the shop and as I closed the door a board fell and almost hit me. Oops! :) Sometime last year I ...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #8: The Dungeon: Before Construction of a Woodworking Shop

10-12-2014 02:45 PM by technoslick | 12 comments »

Our house was built in 1900, as close as the public records will tell. I know many of you are living in homes quite a bit older, especially in the U.K. and Europe, that are in much better shape than ours. The difference is where this home was built and what for. At that time in our local history, Norwich was a sizable hub for railroad traffic. Down at the East end of our street is an embankment that once looked over an large train yard with an engine turn-circle/round house. Across the street...

Workshop Build #29: Leaving my fabulous shop!

10-05-2014 12:56 PM by ~Julie~ | 14 comments »

After building this beautiful shop, we are moving. Something I never anticipated when we built. But things happen and change is good. My shop is a shop to-die-for… I just LOVE it and I know I will never have another one this fabulous. I’ve written a bit about the building of my workshop, but really haven’t shown any inside photos. My husband and I built a 40’ x 40’ garage for both of us. The whole building has in-floor heat which is wonderful to work in,...

Shop Remodel #1: Removing workbench 2, nails are tougher than they look

09-25-2014 10:09 PM by Rick M. | 4 comments »

I mentioned in a previous blog post that I’m tearing out some unneeded workbenches and remodeling my shop.http://lumberjocks.com/wormil/blog/42571 As a refresher, here is where this started with my lathe in the way. In the upper right corner you can kinda see the awesome marking gauge made for me by Hammerthumb. It’s a beast and has it’s own special little shelf. So I tore out one bench and put my lathe against the wall (pics in blog linked above). Now it’s t...

New Shop building! #8: ...AIR! Gasp! I need AIR!

09-23-2014 10:06 PM by JoeinGa | 5 comments »

Back in 10aSEE I put my air compressor on the inside of the shop. It was in a corner and pretty much out of the way. I wasn’t always pleased with the noise, but at least it was out of the weather. And when I got ahold of an old compressor tank (freebie) to double my air capacity, I hung the extra tank using chains up in the rafters right above the compressor. . .But this new building is smaller than the old one (by almost 400sf) and the ceilings are just barely 8’ high, so I c...

Craftsman/King Seeley 9x30 Lathe #6: Finally made a home + important trivia facts

09-21-2014 06:50 AM by Rick M. | 9 comments »

Been putting this off for bookoo long time.Gotta rip out this workbench to make a home for my lathe. Fun trivia: That paper tacked to the wall under the hammer is a plan I drew for a set of end tables I made in 1999, it’s been there since. Demo! Trivia: the plastic bag hanging askew left of the auger bits has been there about 16 years. It’s a clear mounting plate for a router table. I built a router table without using it. Hammerthumb, if you are watchi...

New Shop building! #7: My take on clamp storage

09-10-2014 08:40 PM by JoeinGa | 10 comments »

Finally getting some stuff set up in the new shop. I retired from the workforce at the end of August (YEA, ME) and have been taking it easy so far (Gotta pace myself you know) I have been (slowly) unpacking the 11’ X 20’ storage area that I put up almost 13 months ago. Closed off about 1/2 of a 2-car carport and stuffed everything from my 30’ X 40’ shop that I brought down here from 10aSEE. It was simple plywood walls on 2X4 frames, put together with decking screws...

Traditional Woodworking Tours #10: Middleton Plantation Workshop Tour

08-14-2014 01:51 PM by WoodAndShop | 3 comments »

In my above video I share my recent tour of the traditional carpenter & cooper workshop in at Middleton Place, a former plantation near Charleston, South Carolina. Sorry, the video is a little shaky. But fortunately my photos below are not! Ahhh, what could be better than a traditional workshop in a heavenly location like this? (pssst…ignore the aligators) Nobody was manning their workshop station while I poked my head into this workshop, so I just gave myself a tour. I ...
