Hi there. In a tribute to Hank Hill, International man of mystery, raconteur, and Propane champion, and while looking for more ways to organize the space that would soon be my shop, I decided to build a small propane station. I wanted a place where all the propane and propane accessories that I owned could be centrally located.

Build out of scrap plywood and white wood, it was another practice project. I notched out a slot for a propane bottle with nozzle and separated it from the herd. I also buit little cubby holes underneath to store the igniter and other items. Finally I hung it on the wall next to my compressor station using a French cleat system.

Very nice. What do you use this for?

Thanks Craig. It’s just for storage. Basically I created it to de-clutter the garage as I work to build it into a shop.

Not a bad project. My silly torch will never stay upright and this looks like a good solution.

Can’t speak for the original poster, but I use them mostly to sweat copper fittings and occasionally, in desperation, to try and loosen stuck nuts and bolts.

Hi Holt. I used the propane for camping/hunting but I stopped that a while back and just had the little tanks lying around. When i piped my garage for compressed air I used the propane to sweat the copper.

Have your say...
