  4. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I found a 8" grizzly jointer on Craigslist. The next day, drive about an hour and ten minutes and pull up to this guys hideaway with pole barns, old wooden barns and all kinds of stuff. I see an old trailer with about 6 Grizzly tools on it, a shaper, big bandsaw, dust collector, big lathe, big...
  5. Focus on the Workspace
    I've been focused on a long project (that should be done soon) and haven't had much time for anything else. Today though, I suddenly thought of an easy solution for cleaning the paint can rims. No matter how hard I try I always seem to be chasing that last little bit of paint around and around...

The workbench is cleared and ready for use! Next week I clear the second bench and we're back in business. The wife has lobbied for...

    moving jigs and green wood up higher 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...

    The Beginning - Getting Dirty It has only been four short years since I bought my first house. At the time I had no handyman skills to speak of; heck I didn't even know how to use a drill without obliterating the screw heads. What can I say, I've been a bit sheltered, but life is good, and I...

    A journey into the workshop #1. Starting over, getting organized. After spending the time, money, and effort to get the equipment I need to get moving in earnest in woodworking, I am doing so. But a little background might help you dear readers to understand where I am coming from… I hated...

    It came to pass... The end of this past year saw the essential death of what was to have been a tiny shop/shed workshop. I went over ten months without completing or even beginning a single woodworking project and at the beginning of the year I was convinced it would be a VERY long time before...

My shop space is cleaner and more comfortable than it ever was, and the clutter is GONE! You can see more pictures of the newly...

    I know I have a table saw in here somewhere #3 Well despite the weeks best efforts to sideline me on my task of cleaning up my workshop, I got it into some semblance of order. It is not quite where I want it to be yet, but it is a good start. I promised before and after photographs so here...

    Cleaning up the shop I am new to the LJ forum. I am still exploring the site and the layout… Looking over the shops, I thought it would be good to add mine. I started taking a few pictures, and a few things stood out. I had several areas of clutter and "nests" that have been bugging me for some...
  17. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    Well, there's no better place to post this than the basement. The Coffee Lounge! As anyone who has been following my posts in the last few days knows, I'm struggling with motivation and inspiration. I decided that a shop cleanup might just be the ticket. Now, I've seen messier shops, but I...
