The American Craftsman WorkShop #14: Reorganizing the Shop - Finishing Up

10-10-2009 06:12 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 10 comments »

Almost Done I only have a few things left on the list for this round of shop organization. I need to get the clamps hanging on the wall. At the moment they are just laying on the floor. Before this started they were standing, piled in a corner. It was difficult to access them or pull them out individually, but I cannot neglect them for one more day on the floor. This has been their temporary home while I finished the wall. I also need to hang the extension cords. I have a lot of ...

The American Craftsman WorkShop #22: Organization - Back At It Again!

01-20-2010 08:33 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 24 comments »

Just when I thought I was done… I started milling parts and realized that I needed my mobile parts cart. It is actually a 4’ scaffold that I decided worked better as a mobile parts cart. Over the last couple of years it had turned into a permanent storage cart for templates and all around catch-all cart. I stopped work and got a few sticks of framing lumber. I picked the best I could find and cleaned them up in my sanding machine. I drilled 1/2” holes every six inc...

The American Craftsman WorkShop #20: A Little OCD Goes A Long Way

01-11-2010 07:22 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 24 comments »

I Think I’m Sick… I can’t seem to stop organizing the shop. I thought that I was done organizing and I started to move on with my project but did not get very far. I got sidetracked with getting my taxes together. This led to the realization that I could dispose of 5 years worth of files and paperwork. This led to me emptying out several file storage containers and almost burning up my shredder. I got a bug and started cleaning up the storage room. This allowed m...

organization #1: moving jigs and green wood up higher

02-24-2010 12:26 PM by Gary Fixler | 8 comments »

This is bite-sized post – not really a full post or anything all that interesting, but I wanted to document my ongoing efforts to make a 1-car garage into a world class shop, or whatever is as close to that as possible. I finally drilled some holes in my resawing jig and hung some flanges and pipe nipples to get this thing out from under my feet all the *$#& time. I’ve tripped over this 50x now at least, and it doesn’t matter where I lean it. It’s always somewhe...

Making of the Workshop - Behind the Scene #4: Adding Philosophy to the Workshop.

04-14-2008 04:40 AM by Thuan | 14 comments »

I pushed that orange cart down the main race way of the local Home Depot heading toward the tool coral. There’s nothing I really need there, it’s just part of the routine I supposed. I bumped into Don who works at the appliance section. “What are you building now? “ He asked as he peered into the cart. A hedge clipper and a garden hose repair kit was all that’s in. “Stupid garden, really cuts into valuable woodshop time.” I replied. He laughed. I continued pushing the cart as ...

Small Shop Adventures #7: Working Hard and Hello Winter.

11-16-2014 03:43 PM by BrockF | 1 comment »

(Note: This blog is the most current, as of November 16. It should be #8.)* Hello winter. We have snow on the ground but nothing like to the north in Wisconsin. Still, timing is everything. I have spent the time between my last blog and now racing the weather to complete the bench and get shop ready for the car to come back. If I had one of those little compacts this would be no big deal, likewise a large garage. But the car is a Durango and the shop is only 18×20. And my pl...

Favorite Shop Organizers

04-01-2008 01:45 AM by SteveKorz | 12 comments »

Hi All… All of our shops have to be at least a little organized for any type of efficient production, not to mention the safety reasons that also follow in this category. I’m beginning to get my shop organized, and I’m looking for some ideas. Any kind of storage, carts, benches, containers, ideas, etc, would help… pictures or links to plans if you have them would be GREAT! Also, please consider posting links to past threads here about shop organizing if you’...

Workshop #1: Cabinet... Learning Experience

01-28-2008 03:55 AM by clieb91 | 13 comments »

Well here they are, my first attempt at cabinets. I decided I needed additional storage and organization in my shop. So I started building these a few months ago, in between other goings ons. They are primarily built out of scrap and I used the Kreg Jig to join them. I based them loosely off of an article in “Shop Notes” and a cabinetry book I bought a while ago. I say loosely as due to using the scrap wood (and it being my first attempt :) ) I made some changes, some of which I n...

This week I finished installing wall shelves for recycling bins and a storage tote. They’re super strong – I even stood on them to test if they would hold my weight.

I also share some woodworking tips along the way. I hope people find it useful.
