  1. Shop Projects #1 - Sander Stand

    Getting sick of tools cluttering my makeshift workbench. In reality, my workbench is 2 pieces of plywood 2' x 4' each on a couple of sawhorses (one of the sheets holds a makeshift (there's that word again) router table that's not really very reliable, but it's all I have for now. It was supposed...
  2. 33-Drawer Shop Storage Cabinet

    THIS IS NOT MEANT TO BE A WORK OF ART. I'M A UTILITARIAN TYPE! This is another of those years-long projects. I started this cabinet about 25 years ago after seeing a cabinet made from WWII munitions boxes. I have always liked small drawers for organizing things. Originally, I had planned 40...
  3. 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...
  4. Lumber Storage Rack

    The work on the shop continues. I found myself stumbling over a bunch of lumber, which was making it impossible to get anything done. So, I decided to kill 2 birds with one stone. I panelled one wall of my shop with some T&G knotty cedar I had laying around(free find, by the way). Then used...
  5. Shop storage: Bank of drawers

    You can see me build it on youtube here: I found inspiration for this project on www.woodworkingtalk.com from shop dad: http://www.woodworkingtalk.com/f13/to... This is a really praticle shop project. It was 18 - 2" drawers that is really going to come in handy for everything from hardware to...
  6. Sliding-Door shop cabinet

    Another shop organization project for my new shop. This is another Woodsmith project and the plans are free on their website. It was a pretty easy build As you can see I still have some room to add a number of tools. There is a lot of room for tools in this.
  7. 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...
  8. Saw Till

    As I am starting to mass my hand tool collection, I found I needed a better plance to store my hand Saws. I like the Idea of the saws hanging rather than having the teeth resting on something. I looked all over for insperation on this project an came across something similar in I believe was a...
  9. Skeletons in the shop: Cactus wood knife hilt

    Video Here: Many years ago I visited Santa Fe New Mexico where I grew up and grabbed some Cholla skeletons out of an arroyo behind my old house. They sat around for quite a while until I made one into an icepick: I had also been trying to figure out a good way to incorporate it into a knife...
  10. Scrap shop parts bin / shop storage

    A few months ago my father game me a box of parts bins that someone had given him a few decades ago. After being moved out of the way in my shop several hundred times i decided to finally do something with them. Just a simple random parts bin made from scrap I had laying around the shop. 1/4...
  11. Small Offcut Rack

    I really like the trapezoidal frame on my New Yankee clamp rack, thanks Norm. It uses a minimum of materials, yet it is rigid and sound. So I copied the frame part and then added shelves instead of cross members. It worked beautifully and I was able to finally find a home for all those...
  12. Power Tool Cabinet

    I was able to pick up a free 4×8 sheet of 3/4" particle board on craigslist and since I was tired of seeing all my power tools scattered in the corner of the workbench, I decided to put it to good use. It definitely has its flaws and it came out a little bigger than I had originally thought it...
  13. Storage Box Mobile Cart

    I bought a number of these hinged lid storage boxes a couple years ago when Home Depot stopped selling them and went with the flimsy ones heh have now. I noticed my store still had a stack in the rafters and I talked the manager into selling them to me at a fraction of their original cost since...
  14. Shop clamp storage

    I have recently started setting up my first woodworking shop and have made a start on adding some storage for my small but precious collection of tools. Here in Thailand any quality tools are imported making them more expensive than buying the same item in the west. I built this simple clamp...
  15. 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:)
  16. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Apologies in advance- I KNOW there are at least 50 of these threads floating out there, but it just takes so darn long to wade through them and find what you're looking for…. My top 8: - New/used table saw max price $1800 or so - mostly to be used for ripping and some joinery. - small shop =...
  17. 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...
  18. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Don't know if this is the right place for this, but I was looking around last night on the web. Went to Osborne's web site and they currently have their EB-3 miter gauge on sale for 119.95 with free shipping. Been wanting one for a while now after I read all the good reviews here and other...
  19. Hand Tools
    Folks, I am getting "shutter" while removing mill marks from the edge of soft maple boards. This doesn't happen every time. The hand plane in question is a Stanley Sweetheart #4. I honed the iron with a Veritas Mark II and I also honed a micro bevel. I can shave the hair on my arm with the iron...
