Cleaning up the shop

12-20-2020 05:51 PM by BillGo | 8 comments »

I am new to the LJ forum. I am still exploring the site and the layout… Looking over the shops, I thought it would be good to add mine. I started taking a few pictures, and a few things stood out. I had several areas of clutter and “nests” that have been bugging me for some time now… Trying to take a picture motivated me to clean up a couple of those areas. I wish I had take a before and after picture, but I dug in and started cleaning up… I spent most of the eve...

Workshop #33: 6 Years in the making

03-01-2020 02:38 AM by clieb91 | 7 comments »

Well I finally did it! I took apart my huge lumber rack, I said I would do it 6 years ago in this blog. I tried to adapt it but it just stil took up too much floor space for what i needed to really keep in the shop. The good news is like most things in my shop it was primarily assembled with 2×4s and pocket screws. So I was able to totally dismantle the entire thing in about an hour and now have a wood that will be recylcled into a few other shop projects. The best part is ...

Wicked Fast Router Bit Organizer Trays - using dadoes instead of holes

04-04-2019 05:24 AM by Keith Kelly | 4 comments »

I feel some sort of closeness with you guys that I don’t feel with the rest of the internet. Therefore, I’ll tell you the strange things that were going through my mind as I worked through this problem: I wanted all my router & Dremel bits close together, but I did not want to drill all the holes. So I waited. Experimented. Failed. — One day, I decided to pretend, in order to identify presumptions. I pretended that the router bit wasn’t a route...

Shop Notes #1: Organizing for the New Year

01-03-2018 04:39 PM by Steve | 0 comments »

I like to start off a new year by getting my shop in shape. After the busy holiday season, offcuts are piled everywhere, edges are dull and the deficiencies in the workspace are sharp in my mind. Shortly after Christmas, I set to work making a new stand for my lathe. The old one was designed to stand in the middle of the room and had storage on both sides. I ended up pushing it against a wall, which made that space either worthless or terribly inconvenient. The new stand—not a thing ...

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #5: Lower Cabinet Design - Tool Packing

11-23-2017 02:59 AM by Bill Berklich | 5 comments »

SktechUp – what a great tool! I can change things much easier, explore design options, and visualize architectures far easier. After a couple false starts a bit of learning on how SketchUp works compared to its big brothers the lower cabinet literally came together. The lower cabinet is expressly to house most of my power tools – the ones I reach for regularly. The multi-tool and biscuit joiner will stay in their respective cases because they just don’t get used much. T...

Shop Upgrades #25: Kaisen Foam: Door and Latch Kit

02-16-2017 03:26 PM by bkseitz | 1 comment »

I’m a big fan of the Rigid Modular Tool box series. I use these tool boxes mainly to organize my Ryobi ONE+ tools into grab and go kits for projects around the town. I’ve a few other Battery tools hung for easier access, such as drills. But most of my woodshop are either hand tools or power tools, so portability for out of shop work trumped in-shop convenience. The a couple of weeks ago I had gotten some kaizen foam to organize my shop(s) better. First off was my measur...
