Shopmade Luthier Tools #31: Brass F-hole cleat clamps

02-09-2018 11:37 PM by Dave Rutan | 3 comments »

Who doesn’t love clamps? I made these 5 light duty clamps so that I wouldn’t have to buy them. You can get the comercial variety for $16-$20 each plus shipping. Mine came in at about $5 each. I made them from 5/32” brass rod, 10-24 threaded rod, nuts, a 6mm t coupling for air lines, and some JB Weld to put it all together. The cleats involved are very very small, designed to simply bridge a crack which has already been glued together in order to add some strength to the mend...

Bringing My Workshop Online #5: Installing French Cleats

01-03-2014 08:44 PM by scarpenter002 | 2 comments »

I installed French Cleats above my workbench today in my workshop. I have a number of minor storage/organization projects that will be mounted on these over the next few weeks. The first project was a cordless drill charging station and then a workshop light support. Here are the cleats installed: And here is my workshop light support, which the base plan comes from Wood Magazine’s Idea Shop 5: Next up is the handy dandy glue/paper towel center.

Wood Plane Storage

12-25-2013 09:50 PM by Joe Lyddon | 9 comments »

Plane Storage on slanting board . . Plane Storage on slanting board I got to thinking about my planes scattered all over the shop… on shelves, in drawers, & here & there. I could consolidate their storage, get them all together, and make more overall storage space for other things! So, I grabbed some scraps and started out Mapping Out where the various planes would fit on the board. I screwed 1/4” ply 1/2” strips for separators, drew more ...

Shop Update #6: Getting started on some storage

04-24-2011 05:02 AM by TheKingInYellow | 2 comments »

My wife is finally feeling better after an absolutely dreadful couple of weeks. 14 days of 102+ degree fevers are just brutal. I checked out a used Ridgid TS3650 this week as I am still considering an upgrade from my jobsite saw, but I will tell you that people in Winnipeg are unrealistic about pricing of used items. This particular saw had been used as a table for some angle-grinding work and the top was chewed up on the edges. It was thoroughly corroded (three years outdoors with now ...

09-21-2009 09:29 PM by jeffreythree | 1 comment »

Well, bringing home a load of lumber made me realize that I need some organization for everything that has to fit in it. It is a 2 car garage that needs to fit my wife’s van, about 750 bdft of wood now, workbench, and all the tools(TS, BS, jointer, planer, sander, and all my handtools). It will be similar to this: but bigger. I started it by using a lot of random S4S oak off of a criagslist buy to build a french cleat system on one 20’ long...
