Shipping Container Wood Storage #1: Intro

04-05-2021 07:09 PM by splintergroup | 13 comments »

We all seem to reach that point in our hobby where we just have too much “stuff”. I planned ahead and bought a shipping container to better store my expensive collection of wood and make it easier to keep track of what I have in stock. Nothing earth shattering in this post, just a look into a reasonably simple approach I took and some of the reasons others might want to explore alternative wood storage.Ideally I’d love vertical storage, easy access to every board, but...

small projects #1: the tool tower and mobile lumber rack

12-06-2016 01:05 PM by oldguy2 | 4 comments »

First things about this blog I am a retired teacher 5th graders and PE. so I retired to do woodworking as a business and hobby, but I found Lumberjocks and writing about the projects an outlet I have enjoyed. I retired in 2009 and now 2016 moved from my 24×28 foot retirement shop( a modular shed) to a one car basement garage that came with the wife’s job, she is a Presbyterian Minister. Now that has both good and bad with it. I should not collect tons of extra crap since we may...

Season of shop upgrades #1: Shop Improvements

02-16-2014 10:24 AM by nonenone | 3 comments »

This past year I have occupied my shop time in efforts to organize the shop and spent the time to build several shop tools and accessories. Having a garage shop that is primarily used for parking cars; it has been a constant challenge to optimize the space as a part time woodworking shop. This year I removed everything from the garage to thoroughly clean and re-organize the shop. I painted the walls and added 8 banks of overhead fluorescent lights to brighten up the space. Free up Spac...

Shop Shifting #1: Evolving shop needs create projects

01-01-2013 07:53 PM by sras | 11 comments »

I’m going to use this blog to track the changes I make to my shop. It seems like this is going to be a better method rather than updating my shop page . Also, several of my projects are related to my shop and it will provide some context. First up is a change to my wood storage. Here is the “before” set up. You’ll notice that I had to reinforce the supports with some plywood braces to carry weight. The motivation resulted from a conversation at work. A ...

Workshop #17: ShopQuest 2012- Lost a week

02-16-2012 09:14 PM by clieb91 | 2 comments »

Well due to the fact that I somehow managed to pull my back out at work last week I did not get a lot done in the shop. Could barely make it down the steps most of the week. It is feeling better now and I decided to use some spare time to finish the rearranging in the shop. I managed to get some excess wood thrown out during the last two trash days and found a place for most of the rest of the wood that I had piled up in the alcove. Found my old scrap bin I had built a few years ago at...

Workshop #16: ShopQuest 2012- Serious Progress Made

02-04-2012 04:19 AM by clieb91 | 7 comments »

but still more to go. Over the past few evenings and having the day today I was able to put another serious dent in the reorg of my shop. I have officially gotten everything moved around to about where I want it. The major push (and I mean it physically) was to get my lumber cart moved over to the wall that is just bare concrete and therefore not good for hanging anything. So here is what the back of the shop looked like last week. With a bit of pushing and some help from those little ...

Workshop Update #1: Organizing Miter saw bench.

01-05-2012 03:17 PM by bj383ss | 4 comments »

Hello everyone, For Xmas one of my gifts was a new Dewalt 12” miter saw. This bad boy is alot bigger thant he cheapo Ryobi that I have which has served me well for 6 years now but the brake has gone. So I had to make a new drop down table for the Dewalt to fit. Fortunately the miter saw station I built hangs on cleats on the wall. Well it just so happens that on the right side I had to extend the cleat about 10 inches past the bench to catch the next stud in the wall. So it was real ...

Virtual Designs in Sketchup #5: Rolling Wood Storage Rack

06-06-2011 07:22 PM by rance | 12 comments »

I’ve seen several variations of these rolling wood storage units. Inspired by them, I came up with this one for a friend of mine: It incorporates storage for long lumber, sheet goods, and small turning blocks as well. About the only thing I might add would be dowel storage of some kind. Truth be told, I’d probably just put them in tubes and store them on one of the shelves. It is a typical A-Frame design with half lapped joints. For economy, most of the stick material is...

They didn't lie when they said not to put wood on the floor

01-20-2010 07:29 AM by HungryTermite | 4 comments »

Here in southern california we are experiencing the unusual phenomenon of water falling from the sky. Now, I grew up in the Northeast so a little rain never bothered me but these days it does. Since I started becoming a little more serious about woodworking I have been reading A LOT of books and websites on how to set up a shop. One of the main things that I read was that you really shouldn’t store your wood directly on concrete because it can absorb moisture from the concrete. We...

log [drying] racks #2: finished!

06-11-2009 02:34 PM by Gary Fixler | 13 comments »

I got the last 2 of the 5 sections built last week, sans the corrugated roofing. Here’s how I did it, at warp speed: This marked the first use of my new truck, for 2×4s and small ply panels from Home Depot. What a joy! As an aside, when I cut this particular 2×4 to length… ...I made a new friend. I think it’s a fat bird. As another side, whenever I stack up cut 2×4s like this, I get a terrific urge to build a deck, or workbench: ...
