Sandpaper Storage Rack

02-17-2015 05:13 PM by GlassImpressions | 3 comments »

I filmed the build on my YouTube Channel. Please check it out! Please like, share, and if you enjoyed the video subscribe! http://youtu.be/KIjZJoHwwB4 My solution to storing my sandpaper was not ideal. As you can see in the pictures, the paper has curled from the previous storage method. I make a simple tray style rack to store each grit of paper separately. Materials: MDF, Hardboard, Glue, Label Maker Construction Methods: Rabbits, and grooves, glue. I filmed the build on my YouT...

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 ...

Sqeezing more shop into small space continues.

07-30-2009 05:49 PM by dbhost | 4 comments »

If you’ve read my workshop entry, you might just gather I am crunched on space even though I am in a 2 car garage, and you’d be right. And I am trying to squeeze as much usable shop into the space I have available. Unfortunately vertical space isn’t well utilized yet, so most horizontal spaces, like the current workbench, the various tool tables, the floor etc… get covered in stuff. As I was walking from the lathe, into the house the other day I noticed something ab...

The American Craftsman WorkShop #19: Lumber Storage Under Control

01-07-2010 08:10 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 33 comments »

I Am On Fire! It was -15° outside but I was burning up in the shop with an intense desire to organize the lumber rack and get rid of extra stock. This was the last of three projects that I started during the Christmas/New Years week. 1. Sheet the last unfinished wall with plywood.2. Create a sheet goods organizer3. Organize lumber rack and get rid of extra lumber Here is the before picture of the lumber storage area. But take a look at the lumber and sheet goods area now! ...

The American Craftsman WorkShop #12: Reorganizing and the Domino Effect

10-08-2009 04:13 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 18 comments »

It Just Won’t Stop! I tore out some double doors at the end of the shop that I never use, I need the wall space to hang my clamps. I figure that since I started doing this little reorganization I might as well finish it. I usually bite things off a couple days at a time and then wish that I had finished or done more. There never seems to be a convenient time to interrupt my work schedule for improving shop conditions, but the payoff is always big when it comes to improved work fl...

A change in woodworking habit and environment #1: Changes to the environment

10-19-2012 06:17 AM by David Craig | 5 comments »

I have had a number of changes in my life over the course of the last year. I was a little spoiled over the last five years with a job that I could work from home and a schedule that allowed a somewhat normal pattern of sleep. I have been adjusting to the midnight shift and a couple hour drive each day. I don’t expect much sympathy here, I am grateful that I am still gainfully employed :) But it has caused me to have to reassess how I spend time on my hobby. Kiids, relationships, wor...

A Little Me Time

01-02-2011 05:17 PM by WhiskeyWaters | 3 comments »

Pictures can be found at www.woodshopcowboy.com Just missed my flight to Boston, but on the upside, I get a little me time. I’ve been working pretty steady this weekend. I re-organized the workspace. And then – a new storage bench and some rearranging: That new bench is a salvaged office door, ripped in half and cut to needed lengths. It weighs some 200+ lbs. I have three more planks to use, so I’m thinking a new version of my bench that you see, but this one will have the mass n...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #733: Another Organization Day

06-15-2012 12:20 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

With all the new storage boxes that we acquired the other day shopping, it was inevitable that what would follow would be an organizational session. Many people comment on how we are able to keep so organized running a business from our small place. Even Ellen (who is notorious for being neat) said something to me when we stopped there on our way home. She had said that her and Cindy (her daughter) were talking about us the other day and were both amazed that we are able to keep things so cl...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #186: First Snow of the Year

10-07-2016 08:57 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

I woke up this morning to a light blanket of white snow. It isn’t the soft, fluffy snow that you see in movies though. It is the wet snow that was almost rain and by the time you see it on the ground, it is more like slush than anything. The streets are clear, as they are too warm for it to stick, but they are deceptively slippery. Winter is definitely knocking at the door. It is still falling now as I write, but it is more of a chunky rain than snow. The sun just came up but th...
