Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #11: A home for my Stanley 45 Irons

03-11-2019 11:56 AM by Bill Berklich | 0 comments »

When we last saw our hero… (oops wrong story). Well still no substantive progress on the tool cabinet – waylaid by surgery/recovery and weather. Unheated garage is not conducive to cutting/fitting/gluing/finishing at 10F. I do need to get busy soon ‘cuz the house is going up for sale in a couple more weeks and packing has already started. But that is a another story. I have managed a few smaller projects over the past month or so on warmer days and with the heater going...

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #7: Other Projects - Outfeed Cart

10-07-2018 07:32 PM by Bill Berklich | 2 comments »

Life isn’t linear. Nothing, at least in my life, follows a straight line or well-marked path. On the way to working on the Tool cabinet several other projects happened. I’ll start with the Outfeed Cart. I’ve had all of my sanding supplies just stuffed in a box – actually three boxes and I’ve long wanted a place for everything so I can find it, get it, and store it. Because of my situation I need a couple of features 1) it had to be mobile. 2) it has two slip under my Table Saw wing and 3...

Simple and Cheap Weed Eater Holder!

06-05-2018 05:09 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 1 comment »

I was tired of always trying to find a spot to lean my weed eater up against. Sometimes it would be against the door, then the wall, then maybe the toolbox. I finally wanted a place to call it “home” where it would be there every time I needed to use it and when I was done it would go in the same place. Check out the video and see how easy it is to make.

Personal Projects #1: Steamer Trunk ~ Blanket Chest

04-29-2018 08:14 PM by John Smith | 7 comments »

A few years ago, my 8yo granddaughter saw an antique steamer trunk at a yard sale and fell in love with it. Going through school, she learned that that style of trunk was used back in the days before airplane travelwas common and people traveled on cruise ships such as the Queen Mary (and the Titanic).for their vacations that could last up to 6 months or more. So they carried ever...

Shop Thoughts

04-02-2018 08:55 PM by IantheTinker | 4 comments »

Recently I have not been spending as much time in my shop as I used to. I have no great reason for this other than I had already finished my box for the 2018 Boxswap and I hadn’t gotten around to starting a project that I find a tad bit intimidating (mostly because I attempted the project once before and botched it a good bit). However, I began the project the other day and have found success thus far, so I am feeling good. I am also wanting to try a project I found in the Small Shop magaz...

My Journey #2: Storage Challenges

03-01-2018 08:22 PM by TexasUnicorne | 8 comments »

I’m the type of person who has to be able to SEE all of my tools…. because basically, if I can’t see it, then it doesn’t exist and does me no good. After much research, I’ve come to the conclusion that I need to develop a tool storage system that allows me to both store my tools and work efficiently, comfortably, and safely. What I’ve got now is a big, hairy mess… Tools everywhere, cabinets with drawers just taking up space, and massive frustration...

Farm Bed with Storage, Queen

05-23-2017 07:39 PM by clperdue4342 | 6 comments »

Farm Bed with Storage, Queen I modeled this farm bed after a design I found on Ana White’s website. I made some modifications to eliminate the pocket hole joinery. I’m not a hater of pocket holes; they just seemed inadequate for this project. I did finish the bed, but I never got around to the night stand.
