« Part 4: yet another list... Part 5 of Basement Workspace / V8 Mini Workbench series Part 6: Wanted: Splinter extractor »

I had about an hour and some to work in my shop last night and took full advantage. I got the first piece of plywood cut into large pieces, so I started laying out the internal pieces. I stopped after the second piece because the numbers I noticed were too hard to read on the print out. Glad I did since I got one of them wrong! I started cleaning up instead, and noticed my clamp rack (using that term loosely) was in disarray. I remembered seeing an idea somewhere recently (here maybe??) about hanging some form of clamp by its handle instead of by it’s rod. I thought – that would work great for my little clamps! While I was doing that, I had the epiphany it would also work on my c-clamps.

So cool – did that little project and got things cleaned up and ready for my next time in the shop. I also went inside and worked up a cut list for the plywood pieces since I can’t seem to read them on the printouts I have. I’ve attached a link to it in my google docs in case others may find it handy. Feel free to take a look and let me know if I’ve gotten anything wrong – Lord knows I can fat finger anything!

I’m on my iPad right now and don’t have access to SU but didn’t I include a cut list? I’m sure I did.
Are you having trouble reading numbers on the SU or just on your printout?
Anyway, looks like you’ve got it worked out. Keep me posted if you run into any mistakes. I did check carefully but …..

Hi Paul! It was just my print out – I didn’t blow it up big enough or something – the numbers were all fuzzy. :) I’ll be using the cut list to mark the cuts off as I go so they’ll both get used. I’m sure I’ll have questions – you aren’t off the hook yet about the bench dog holes ;) I may have to run up to Woodcraft and get a core box bit or the round one you showed so I get round holes.

Yes that is a 3/4” core box bit. If you want to use holdfasts, you will want round and this method makes them perfectly square to the surface.
