2022 Shop Tour

01-06-2022 08:02 PM by TimberBiscuit | 4 comments »

I think it is about time I show you around my woodshop! I converted my 2-car garage into the workshop where I build all of my pieces. 440 sq ft may not seem like much space, but what you can fit with careful planning and organization is impressive. Of course, that’s not to say that I wouldn’t LOVE a bigger space, but sometimes you have to work with what you got! And one of the biggest suggestions I can give anyone looking to get their shop set up is to think about your own persona...

Reorganization of the shop: Not what I had planned on doing

11-29-2020 11:49 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 8 comments »

On my way to finishing the guitar I decided I needed to do a cleaning of the shop to minimize the dust to put the finish coats on the instrument. Along the way I ended up doing a four day reorganization. Oh, I did clean it too. This video shows the changes in the shop after the reorganization. Also, I’ve been following posts on LJ’s about dust collection and venting outside, in the winter, I managed to do something like that here.

Its been a busy few months. I moved in to a new shop and now I need to create some storage and organization for some of my tools and equipment. The first project was this drill charging and sanding station made out of baltic birch plywood and attaches to the wall with a french cleat. Thanks for watching!

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #4: Thoughts in SketchUp

11-12-2017 09:35 PM by Bill Berklich | 3 comments »

Temps dropped, cold in the shop so refocused to more indoor activities. Friday (November 10th), of course, was the U.S. Marine Corps 242nd Birthday – Semper Fi Brothers past, present, and future, and may we serve 300 more with honor. Did the Vets day thing too on Saturday served breakfast to a host of Korea and Vietnam Vets and some of the few remaining WWII Vets too. I have to say that I met a guy who was on the USN Nautilus. The first nuclear sub and the first to sail under the pola...

Tool Cabinets #2: Tool cabinet has become tool WALL

11-12-2017 03:22 AM by glideking | 10 comments »

Having the 3D controller in my left had and the trackpad in my right has been a game changer. I can now fly through my plans. Thought I would start cutting lumber today but I keep coming up with ideas on my drawings in Sketchup. As the program gets easier for me I am exploring construction and configuration possibilities. The back panels and flipper doors have become bead board. Added crown molding just to learn the “follow me” tool in Sketchup. I did not want the saw till behind ...

Time to make some changes to the shop. #15: Demolition is over... now to organize the tools.

02-04-2017 04:16 PM by AngieO | 10 comments »

The demolition part is over. Now it’s time to set up my tools better. The flow was just not working for me. Every time I needed to use my table saw I had to pull it out. It’s on wheels… but it’s one of those stands that come with it. Works.. but more awkward than anything. But with it pulled out and the saw horses out… it created a small path in between and it was such a hassle. I don’t even remember where. I think on a Youtube video… someone menti...

Time to make some changes to the shop. #14: Where I was... Some changes... and a little demolition.

02-01-2017 08:53 PM by AngieO | 13 comments »

Well… back in September of 2013 I started this blog about making changes to my shop. There have been so many changes. It’s hard to believe. After feeling really discouraged I spent this past weekend making more changes. I mean…. we got up that morning and I said… “hey… we are going to do this!”. My poor children had no warning. So let’s look back for a second. Here was my “Shop” back in 2012. Yeah…. you are probably s...

12-06-2016 04:39 AM by dbhost | 0 comments »

The long promised video on the Thien trash can cyclone separator buiid is here and done. I kind of forgot I shot this footage… The install video is coming in the next couple of days. I already have it mostly edited down. Just need to put the ending credits on… I figured I needed to get this one out first though! View on YouTube
