  1. Miter Stand organization -simple shelf

    I thought someone might like the idea here. Not a complicated or work of art for sure. Took to "T" bolts for 3/4" track and ground down the sides to fit in the groove in the front of my Dewalt Miter saw stand, so that I could mount a removable shelf . Shelf keeps the things I usually leave on...
  2. Ratchet Strap Organizer

    Every time you throw a ratchet strap on the floorboard of the pickup, it instantly becomes hopelessly tangled. The problem increases exponetially by the number of straps on the floorboard. I finally got so sick of untagling my ratchet straps every time I needed to use one, I came up with this...
  3. Ohio University Bobcat Sign

    I upgraded from a Dremel router setup to a Bosch Colt Palm Router. Had to use the Dremel for some of the fine detail work. Love my first try with the Bosch Colt. GREAT TOOL! Thanks to JimmyHack for sharing his design. He did this as well with scroll saw. I envy his skills. Here is the...
  4. Magnet Board for Mud Room (with my first inlay attempt)

    My wife wanted more organization for things near our back door. She wanted something to keep track of some of our girls' papers from school. I thought about a bulletin board - but I don't like having holes in all the papers. So I made a magnet board instead. I made it big enough so it can fit 4...
  5. Hollow Mortise Chisels Organizer

    In finishing up the slant cabinet for the stand to my bench top mortiser, I decided to try my hand at a drawer organizer for the chisels. This is the result. This project turned out okay, with only one change I'll make in future organizers. The cross pieces need to be dadoed on the top...
  6. Sanding Equipment Storage

    Recently, I have been on a shop organization kick. I am working through a set of plastic shelves that I have stored various tools on. I started with my sanders and sandpaper. In addition to organizing various tools, I am also using lots of scraps. Two birds, one stone…
  7. Router Storage

    In continuing my shop organization theme, I wanted to centralize all of my router stuff in one area. This cabinet, made from scraps, includes a drawer for edge guides and wrenches. It also includes router bit storage with room for growth.
  8. Card Scraper Holder

    Finally banged one out in a day :-) I took some scrap ply, marked out my kerf lines on 1/2" centers, and ran 'em through with the radial arm saw (neat !). Then, I did an inlay of Wenge, or something, at the front and at the back. Then … I used my dado router jig, and carved out about 1/3" of...
  9. Sheet goods storage

    This isn't my first project, but it is my first to post. This is my sheet goods storage. It is 2.5' wide and 9' tall with roughly two 11" sections (2 right compartments, top and bottom), far right being for full sheet goods on end; middle section top for half sheets and middle section bottom...
  10. Another! Vacuum and Separator Cart

    Like so many other LumberJocks, I got tired of the transportation issues associated with a separator system. Two units, hoses, wobbles, tangles and the like. So, I decided BUILD A CART! Mine isn't anything special, it's all 11/16 ply and joinery is via my Kreg Jig kit. I used what I had on...

  12. Workshop Bins

    If you're like me… just a tad OCD - like to have things organized, uniformed, and for crying out loud…. able to find what you are looking for; well I think you'll relate to this post. I wish I had before photos of the mess, but you can imagine. Various shape and size bins, old butter...
  13. DIY Mobile Lumber Cart | Plans from Woodworking for Mere Mortals

    My latest woodworking build: a mobile lumber cart! I followed plans from Woodworking for Mere Mortals. Steve Ramsey has a great build video for the project. You can check out the video on his YouTube channel. This lumber cart replaces a previous one that I built a few years ago. My old lumber...
  14. THAT post in the middle of the shop

    Some of you may have THAT post in the middle of your shop like I do. You know, the one that is like the neighbor you really don't care for but have to live by. I had two of these posts. I removed one and replaced it with a 2×10 beam. I didn't want ot press my luck with the second post. I...
  15. CUSTOM TOOL HOLDERS •

    Jan 6, 2013 As a followup to the Tool Storage Cabinet, I thought Iʻd share what I learned about making custom tool holders. Most of the following pictures show the holder on the left and the tool in the holder on the right. If you want you can save photos to your computer for future reference...
  16. Garage organization

    Cheap durable yet flexible garage organization. Not an original idea for sure, but I combined a couple other ideas to make it more flexible. The materials are simply standard 2×4s and 1/2" metal electric conduit. I found if you want them finished it's way easier before they're mounted. 3/4"...
  17. Shop Upgrades

    I have completed the latest additions to my shop upgrade. These are additional pieces that continue with the same theme as my Ultimate Storage Unit and Shop Cart. The first picture shows the two pedestal storage and worksurface. I modified the left unit to contain extra drawers instead of the...
  18. Sand Paper Organizer

    Finally cleared out and organized the sandpaper drawer!!!!! I found this project in Fine Woodworking AUG 2017 (No. 262), pg 16. I make mine bigger (22"L X 7"W X 6.5" H) to hold 18 slots worth of sandpaper. I know a lot of people have a drawer full and it's a pain to find what you need when you...
  19. Basement Workshop Shelving

    I recently started school for horology and upon arriving there I found that our basement workshop was a mess. Being the organized person that I am and having built things like this in the past I set to work designing shelves to hold the clock pieces that we are working on. Before the new...
