  1. Projects Tool Storage Cabinet

    I hate an unorganized shop, and my metal shelving unit became a catch-all for anything and everything. So, it was time to change it up and add a more custom shop tool storage cabinet. The shelves of the cabinet rest on heavy-duty pins, so reorganizing or if I get some new tools, I can change the...
  2. Projects Router Table Upgrade

    It was about time I switched to a router table from the one I built into my workbench years ago. And one of the first things I wanted to do was add some much needed storage. Nothing better than having all of your tools and bits nearby when you need them. For the build, I used birch plywood and...
  3. Mobile Tool Chest

    While my french cleat system has helped me organize my most used tools, I still needed a place to store my hand saws, less used tools, and my growing hand plane collection. I found a plan in Wood magazine, then modified it to suit 4×8 sheets of ply rather than 6×6. I also omitted some features...
  4. Shop oganization - slide drawer for compressor

    Took some left over Accuride bottom mount slides , added a plywood "drawer" . Makes it easy to use my compressor. I did not see anything like this on Lumber jocks. So , I thought it might give you some ideas.
  5. Wall-Mount Lumber Rack (Mullet-Style)

    How to Build a Wall-Mount Lumber Rack (on YouTube) My workshop will always need to be a garage first and woodworking shop second. To help with my lumber storage, I decided to build my own lumber rack. I scoured Pinterest for ideas, but I couldn't quite find a design that mounted to a wall while...
  6. Christmas Presents 1 - Cutting Boards

    I made these cutting boards as Christmas gifts for my Mom and Mother-in-law. My wife has been asking me to make her a smaller "cheese board" for a while now, so I got her to draw me up a full size template of what she had in mind, and I took it from there. I really liked her design, so I made a...

  8. MDF CNC Router

The bearing rails are build out of 6061 aluminum angle. The machine is driven by 3 stepper motors using 1/2-10 Acme screws. The machine...
  9. Some storage projects for the shop.

    I spent Saturday and this evening working on a few storage projects for the shop. As those of you that have seen my most recent blog know, I recently started on a major overhaul of my shop. This is part of that project to make my shop more efficient and organized. First of all, here is a...
  10. Shop Base Cabinet with Drawers

    I built this 5' wide base cabinet for some extra shop storage. It has 4 pull out trays, 2 behind a door on each side, and 3 drawers in the middle. I made the whole base and shelves from 2 sheets of 3/4" plywood and one sheet of 1/4" for the drawer bottoms. I used a portion of a 3rd sheet for...
  11. Chisel Rack

    Here's a little chisel rack with room for expansion that I whipped together in the shop out of cut-offs. The pictures kind of tell the tale, but if you want the details, they can be found on my Wordpress blog (with more pictures). Shop made chisel rack. Thanks for looking!
  12. Clamp storage made simple.

    Nothing fancy about this project at all other than it really made my life simpler by the bench. I litterally used 2 pieces of wood and 5 drywall screws. A 2×4 for the upper rack and a cut off piece of 2×4 trimmed from when I was making my bench in August, for the lower rack. To see the...
  13. Drill Bit Organizers

    With my workshop setup, it makes most sense to keep my drills and drill bits in the metal drawer right benearh my drill press. I recently got tired of my drill bit drawer looking like this. I really like the idea of organizers that I can take out of the drawer and move to wherever I need...
  14. Lathe Rack

    I've needed to get organized and quit laying my sharp lathe tools on the bed, potentially dinging their edges. So I took a few hours and made this tool rack. It is made from scraps and extra pieces I had around, mostly poplar with some pine and maple. I painted it with milk paint, pumpkin...
  15. Sandpaper Organizer Cabinet

    I have a lot of sandpaper. I know. I have a newer 6-inch orbital sander and still have my 5-inch sander too. Then add on all the sanding sheets, sponges, detail sanders, tack cloths, etc. and well, now you'll understand the necessity for this sandpaper organizer cabinet. The design is quite...
  16. French Cleat Drill bit Storage

    This week, I built a storage rack for most of my drill bits. I even left a little room for future bits. Using the French cleat system, it is mounted to the wall. If you are interested in seeing the build on video check out the links below. Thanks for supporting my projects! View on YouTube...
  17. How To Make A Handsaw Caddy

    It's been quite a while since I've been able to post anything on here. It's good to be back. This is a shop project that's been a long time coming. I wanted all of my handsaws to be in one place so I made this handsaw caddy. I based the design on some plans I downloaded from somewhere. I'm sure...
  18. Drill organizer/charging station

    Continuing with my analysis paralysis therapy, here's another project that should have been done long ago but for my fear of wanting to redesign it as soon as it's done. I've got the cordless tools I've got for various reasons (sales mostly) but I've always thought at some point down the road...
  19. Not Much 1 - but Useful

    I was thinking of getting a 3D printer to make all sorts of devices to organize my "shop" - then I though - I can make it from wood - why do it in Plastic? needed to hand my Incra 6" T-RULE - and used a corner molding for it - it works just fine
  20. Outright thievery

    This plywood/scraps/drywall rack was stolen from Dadoo (thanks)... hey, if you're going to be a thief, you might as well be a courteous one. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/2614 My shop had become unuseable because of plywood not mixing well with scrap lumber, so it was definately time for a...
