  1. Kaizen Foam Cabinet Doors! (VIDEO)

    I documented the video process on my YouTube channel: I took a set of old cabinets from a friend. The carcasses were fine but the doors needed to be rebuilt. During the process I thought of putting a french cleat system on the door front for extra storage. This worked okay, but it looked a...
  2. Shop Organization: Wheelbarrow Mounts

    My frustration level from moving around and tripping over yard tools finally reached a point where I had to do something about it. A few scraps of plywood, a couple pieces of hardwood, and a few drywall screws can go a long way towards shop organization!
  3. Workshop Sawblade Bookends

    I built this set of Workshop Bookends from scrap 3/4" plywood and an old saw blade. The boards are 6" x 7.25" and I rounded off two corners of each board. It is assembled with glue and screws, and the saw blade is set in a groove with epoxy. I attached non-skid shelf liner to the bottom with...
  4. Cordless Tool Charging Station

    I made this Cordless Tool Charging Station to hold all of my cordless tools. It's made from a single 2'x4' sheet of 3/4" plywood. I ripped the plywood into one 16"x48" piece and cut that into the shelves I needed at different depths. I customized each shelf to hold the tools. I cut a slot...
  5. Space Saving Parallel Clamp Rack

    Hey, guys! I just finished up a parallel clamp rack for the shop and I love this thing! I used a stacked approach vs. the typical side by side approach and it offers some massive space savings (I got the idea from Dyami from Penultimate Woodshop). The rack is 38-3/4" wide and will fit 24...
  6. Mobile Clamp Rack

    I built this mobile clamp rack from leftover decking boards to get better organized in the shop. I made a video on the whole build here: The Mobile Clamp Rack on Wm Walker Co's Youtube channel
  7. French Cleat Tool Holders

    I have a decent amount of free wall space, and not much floor space. I decided to make use of this space with a french cleat system. I used 3/4" pine ply on all the tool holders, with a 3/4" poplar dowel for the pliers holder. The caliper and divider holders have proven to be the most useful...
  8. Wrench Racks

    My brother was able to expand his tool collection, and needed some wrench organizers. I built these out of scrap maple and birch ply from another project. Getting the right angle for the tilt of the wrenches, as well as the spacing between them and the angle of the whole organizer, took some...
  9. Shop storage - modular cabinet

    This was a much needed cabinet for my shop but it came with some troubles. Here is the video if your interested:)
  10. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have 2 Jet DC 1100 wired for 220 collecting dust in my woodshop. They are eating up a ton of space, and to the center of my shop for the tablesaw, I am tripping over the collection hose. One of the dust collectors are dedicated to my Jet 10 inch contrator table saw. The other runs my band...
  11. Focus on the Workspace
    What are some of the shop storage/organizing solutions you've found most useful in your shop? As my wife and I close on our new house this week, I'm looking forward to moving into a new shop space (an actual garage/shop space, for those who know my back story, I'm excited for that). Anyway, I...

  13. Hand Tools
    As some of you probably already know I am restoring a Stanley type 4 no 7. A couple of weeks ago I gave it a citric acid bath and removed all rust. I plan on doing touch ups with pontypool asphaltum and while I wait for that to arrive I decided to move on to the tote and knob. Both are in decent...
  14. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    At a local hardwood supplier, it occurred to me that I hadn't seen redwood lumber in quite a while. I want to do a few turning projects with this wood. Twenty years ago, lumber/home improvement places had stacks of it, presented as a great deck material. Did something happen? Is it available...
  15. Focus on the Workspace
    I'm reorganizing and going through garage of all of my supplies and I recently completed my workbench. As I'm putting stuff back, I'm asking myself "Do I really need this?". A majority of stuff that I ask myself that on is hardware, the bulk of which was left in my house when I purchased it or...
  16. Focus on the Workspace
    I finished reorganizing one shop wall with these key objectives: 1. Nothing stored on the working countertops 2. All items behind cabinet doors or in drawers 3. Everything labeled, both on the outside and inside 4. Drawer fronts and doors white 5. No space under cabinets for dust (or mice or...

    Mo tools, mo problems. Gift Horse Power The shop is only a year and a half own and I am constantly cleaning and organizing. Tools have accumulated quicker than I can file them. Kristin's Grandfather has been giving me tools like crazy. Just two weeks ago(along with yard tools and some nice...

    The War against Clutter This week I found myself between projects and this is my on call week, so I decided to invest my time in cleaning up my basement shop. I have an on call rotation every other week which means that I could get paged anytime, 24/7. I do not like to do to many projects that...

    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...
