These are just a few small shop items I thought I’d post, nothing special really. I the first pic are my clamp racks, hung on french cleats. You can also see a few other things in this pic.
6” disc sander that I made years ago from a 1/4 HP motor more than 10 years ago
Pegboard framed in pine, with a piece of antique molding for the bottom. The profile on the molding is a great place to put pencils, rulers, etc etc…
Hardware organizer with a bunch of little drawers.
Bit organizer (pine board with holes)
Pic 2 is my crosscut sled. Pretty simple construction, 1/4” ply for the base, cherry fences. I threw this one together pretty quick just to have something as my table saw didn’t come with a miter gauge. It is accurate to less than 1/64 over 16”, so It’ll do til I have time to build a better one.
Pics 3 and 4 are a holder for my HF carving chisels. In pic 4 you can see I used a step bit for the holes. The chisels drop in and rest nicely in the taper.
Pic 5. Now there was a tough project(sarcasm). Thin cherry cut-offs I saved for coffee stirrers. Also in the pic are other serious shop essentials…. Percolator(tastes much better than drip IMO), Microwave(never work hungry), last but not least, you can see a bag of Rolo’s behind the sugar box. (Must have CHOCOLATE!!!)
Have fun kids… I know I always do ;)
