I've "winged it" and built some nice things, e.g. house, cabinets, furniture, using the most basic of tools over the past 30 years. I have collected a few firsts (for me) such as a 6" jointer and lunchbox planer and hope to start bulding a new shop by the end of the year. The current shop is very tight at 16' X 24' and everything in the world has to be stored there. I hope to glean a few ideas about shop layout efficiency from you LJs out there. It has already been great fun just seeing the different ideas on making tools mobile, since very few have all the space they need! Look forward to interaction with and maybe even offering a little something to the LJ community.

I’ve had a set of bench cookies for a while and just recently used them for the first time. I also had a set of risers and realized that called for a second set of cookies so I made a set of “cake squares”. I realized how helpful...
Wow! I just looked at some of the circle cutting jigs and feel a little intimidated. If you need something adjustable and simple, however, this may interest you. It is just 3/4” veneered plywood from a dismantled entertainment center that pr...
