Hello,

This will be my first time posting here, but I have lurked around for the better half of a year now. Lumberjocks is, and has been a great inspiration for me. This whole post is going to be a ramble, so I’m sorry if it’s not in the correct forum. Anyway, I’m 17 years old, and I live in Norway. I have always been interested in building stuff (treehouses when I were younger), but I was dragged into furniture making in 10th grade in woodworking class. I made a chess/coffee table, and a hanger from the rest of the material I had available.

Here is the chess table finnished, at my school:

Fast forward a year. I now have a garage full of machines (wood lathe, dovetailer machine, Walker Turner radial drill press, swedish stationary bench grinder, and soon a lot more from a guy I have gotten in touch with. The largest machine he is selling is a MinMax combination machine (shaper, table saw, planer, jointer and mortise router).

Drill press home:

I go to a school that has a special kind of education; I go both to school and work in a company. Normally you do one or the other, or do 50% school and 50% work. I however do 100% of both, but in turn I have little vacation and I have long days (sometime I have to go to school on sundays, sigh..) I use the pay I earn from the company to finance all of this. I have also used some savings and my presents is always money for tools.

I recently bought a collection of ca. 300 shaper cutters. It weighs a lot. The seller didn’t have time to split the collection up, so I ended up buying it all. I want to sell some of it to perhaps make a profit. (It cost 15000NOK = 2500,0 USD to buy. If anyone of you could educate me on the shaper cutters, that’d be great.

Here is a fraction of it:

But again, I’m not going to sell it all. So I’m in desperate need in order to organize it, so it doesn’t dull or destroy the carbide teeth. So I searched around on the web, but I didn’t find anything that got me to think/say: “Wow, that is a really clean and well thought out design!”. Space is at a premium, so since I plan to have a mitre stand, I’m thinking to incorporate storage into that. But does anyone have some pictures?

Thanks in advance!

Sjur

Kaizen Foam by FastCap in drawers is my favorite for this kind of stuff.

I like to have them in shallow drawers. Dowels the size of spindle mounted on 3/4” boards, attached to bottom of drawer. Looks like you have a bunch.

Rrww, that looks neat. I’ll check it out.

Levan, do you screw, bolt, or drill a hole and glue the pegs? Did you make your shallow drawers yourself or have you bought one of those metal cabinets?

We made our own drawers. The dowels are just glued in.
