Tiny shop. Big renovation

08-07-2016 11:23 PM by emart | 3 comments »

I swear my tools multiply when I’m not looking. After looking over my city’s building codes I saw that I can have a 10×20 barn without a permit. I bought a second kit just like the one I built in 2008 and added it onto the back of my current shop. I’m about 2 months in on this project so far(I can only work on it on the weekends). It’s still a long way from being done but I at least have a roof of sorts and I plan on adding some windows to the building to le...

From cluttered garage to organized (hopefully) wood shop!! #5: Journey continues - time to tackle the bench and tool area!!

06-07-2016 02:19 AM by PeterDominic1983 | 2 comments »

This is SUPER slow-going… It is really difficult to see in pictures, for many reasons. Obviously, if someone is viewing the pics, there is only a cursory and “2D” perception of what is really around! But, writing as the person doing all the cleanup? I feel a massive and satisfying sense of accomplishment. And I am not nearly done yet! Finally began removing lots of the items and storage boxes/bins from the garage; I have been staging all the containers ...

From cluttered garage to organized (hopefully) wood shop!! #1: As it currently stands...

05-23-2016 01:26 PM by PeterDominic1983 | 5 comments »

So I have made the decision to turn my garage into a part-time, hobby type wood shop. I do construction and residential renovations as my primary income, but this is my true passion! I also changed my major in college to “Fine woodworking and Furniture Making” which I didn’t even know existed… turns out its an Arts degree, and they offer transfer opportunities if desired… The way things currently stand, my garage is about 350 sq ft, with the previous homeown...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #69: Working the shop and Paul Sellers' latest book!

04-26-2016 02:57 PM by Paul Bucalo | 4 comments »

I keep forgetting to swing by here, visit and post what’s happening my way. Totally, my bad. Progress in the workshop is hit-or-miss, but overall I am gaining more than losing or staying stagnant. Real-life concerns keep interfering: don’t we woodworkers have a deity that we can call on to stop this unwanted intrusion into our workshop time? I am working on a few different projects. I’ll post pictures once I have finished them. Yesterday my copy of Paul SellersR...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #68: Lumber racks, and the mess that finally went away!

04-18-2016 02:08 AM by Paul Bucalo | 2 comments »

I’ve mentioned to a few before, that putting things in their proper place in the Dungeon workshop is much like playing with one of those sliding puzzles, or more like a Rubik cube. It came down to this: I needed more lumber racks and I needed to sort out the questionable-to-down-right-bad-boards and get them out of the shop. My first task was to build a rack for sheet goods. The only place with enough space is the entryway into the dungeon. It’s full now with most all of the sh...

Retooling

03-12-2016 07:28 AM by thegringoww | 0 comments »

This post never made it to lumberjocks from my website, so I decided to add it. So, the last time I blogged. I wrote a post about a woodworking museum in Yerevan, Armenia. If you are a reader of my blog you might be asking yourself, weren’t you just in Queretaro, Mexico getting ready to settle in and blog about your woodworking experience. As it turns out, that once the Mrs. and I arrived, it did not feel right. So instead of telling you why I did not move there in this post, I h...

Dave's Workshop #15: I improved my tapering jig

03-10-2016 07:51 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

Over a year ago I posted this blog entry [link] about the jigs I’ve made for my table saw. Even then I knew the tapering jig pictured above was in need of augmentation. At the time it was adequate, but every time I used it… This week I decided to just take the time and fix the old tapering jig up so that wouldn’t feel so much on the edge when I use it. The main reason though is that I want to use it more for putting a nice clean edge on boards that are not straight. ...

Workshop construction from dream to reality. #1: conception...

02-24-2016 12:09 AM by DalyArcher | 1 comment »

Well, after much debate and discussion it appears as though I am finally on my way to having a real live workshop all my own! My wife and I bought our current home with the idea of flipping it and buying something else with a large yard and shop. Take a couple years, add a little one to the mix and plans change. Our location is great, walking distance to schools and stores and work. We had considered selling and looking for something else, but we bought at a great time and the property ...
